About The Author

You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
-Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message)


Explaining myself to others is a bit of a challenge. I’m what is becoming known as a “third culture kid.” I was born and raised in a country that didn’t match my passport, and my passport didn’t ever quite match my sense of identity.

Now that I’m grown, “home” is as relative as motion. The only explanation that makes sense is to say that my home is in Heaven. I’m simply a visitor here.

For a little more detail about my life, you can read my personal testimony.

      Thank you so much for that nomination. I am honored to know you chose me. I’m afraid I will not be able to accept the award at this time. I’m not sure I have what is required for acceptance of the award, as I am still finding my way around the blogosphere. But I want to give you my gratitude for the nomination.
