Seeing Fireflies

I'm so glad you're here.


Here's a little of my story...


I grew up across the street from a large cornfield in a small town in rural Minnesota. Since then, my world has expanded beyond what I could have imagined.  A graduate of Buena Vista College (BA)  and Princeton Seminary (MDiv, ThM),  I met my husband over 25 years ago while serving a church in Switzerland. At a pivotal point personally, I felt a pull towards serving as a homemaker. I am grateful for how that decision has shaped my days and helped me grow. My big joy now is being the parent of two amazing teens. They inspire me to keep growing in knowledge and grace. 

I enjoy learning and helping others find deep fulfillment. I find hope and strength through my faith.  Many have said that our greatest longing is to know God and our greatest calling is be with Him and become more like Him.  I believe our everyday ordinary lives are remarkable with Him. 


Recently, I have felt called to uncover a dream of writing that's been quietly growing in my heart. I hope sharing my story and what I am learning will connect with your story and encourage you in your own journey.


I wonder what's been growing inside of you?


Why seeing fireflies?

When our children were small we always looked forward to the arrival of fireflies in our backyard. I still enjoy seeing fireflies. It reminds me to stop and see the light - the source of wisdom and life.  In this way, seeing fireflies can also be a way of living.  If you want to see a firefly you have to be intentional. You have to know where to look.   What if we could learn where to look  for the things that matter? What if we could learn to see the light?
