If you’re interested in what your faith looks like with jeans on here in 2017, or how to love on people even better, or laugh out loud, or get all flabbergasted about a God who keeps on rollin’ out the good stuff…pull up a chair and join the conversation.

And I love to hear from readers! Contact me below.

By that same, overwhelming goodness of God, I’ve authored a number of books, products, blog posts, and articles for sites like familylife.com, wearethatfamily.com, boundless.org, and momlifetoday.com. I get jazzed by ideas that help us love better!

But really, I’m a wee bit of a nerd who devours great fiction, pretty much anything creative, and the occasional chunk of dark chocolate. I have four goofy, rowdy kids I’m crazy about. Most of my time is spent living a life I thought I only dreamed about, teaching and loving folks here in Uganda.


Our family is passionate about relieving injustice and poverty in East Africa—and equipping East Africans to make world-changing disciples. And we feel energized by the opportunity to leverage the gifts, heart, and experience God’s given us to develop and disciple East Africa for His renown.

After working in church and parachurch ministry for over ten years, my husband and I felt compelled to leverage our gifts for the majority world—the 70% of the world struggling constantly beneath a poverty of spirit and body—and the other missionaries who serve them. We want to spend our days pouring ourselves out for God’s command to “let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke” (Isaiah 58:6)—and training our kids, too, to live lives poured out for God’s Kingdom.

I teach weekly at a local refugee center, which I utterly adore. 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

As a family, we serve 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.

These facilities—including hospitals, orphanages, schools, clean water projects and more—directly impact communities by meeting physical needs and communicating God’s love in a practical way. (If you’re interested in partnering with us financially or otherwise, please contact me using the form above!)

May you find yourself immersed deeper and deeper in this generous grace!
