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 and Princeton Seminary,  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. 

Many have said that our greatest longing is to know God and our greatest calling is be with Him and become more like Him.  That is what I am striving for.  Our everyday ordinary lives are remarkable with Him. 


I enjoy learning and helping others grow personally and spiritually. 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 - to discover God in my midst. It also encourages me to enjoy the wonder and possibilities all around us.  In this way, seeing fireflies could 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 and how to look for the things that matter? What if we could learn to see the light?
