By that same kindness of God, I’ve authored or co-authored a number of books, products, blog posts, and articles.  I now write full-time.

Really, I’m a bit of a nerd who devours fiction and time with friends, pretty much anything creative, musical harmony, and the occasional chunk of dark chocolate. I have four goofy, rowdy kids and a husband I’m crazy about.

Our family’s passionate about relieving injustice and poverty and making world-changing disciples. We labor toward that end with Engineering Ministries International, EMI exists to transform lives by providing hope to poorest of the poor, designing facilities that serve the poor in developing countries. 

In Uganda, I taught weekly at a local refugee center, which I utterly adored. But a lot of our family’s work simply arises from simply living intentionally here in our community.Refuge and Hope R H Color Letterhead Logo


Right now, I’m a bit of a “goer” who’s learning to stay; to live poured-out wherever He wants. Hopefully that means you find a little more of Him and His good ways here.

May you find yourself immersed deeper still in this generous grace.
