“Those who look to God are radiant; their faces are never covered in shame!” -Psalm 34:5
I’m the author of Overcomer: Breaking Down the Walls of Shame and Rebuilding Your Soul (Zondervan, 2015), and a new book coming out with NavPress on lament and hope in seasons of difficulty.
My husband Kevin and I planted Renewal Church in the Chicago area, where I serve on the preaching and teaching team. But one of my favorite roles is being mom to our three hilarious sons. (Which is to say that I spend most days in my pajamas chasing them around, while drinking waaaaay too much coffee. If I’m going to be really honest with you, I drink coffee for the creamer. I heart coffee creamer. It’s a problem.)
When I manage to get out of my pj’s, I preach and teach at ministry events, retreats, and church services. I write for MOPs International (Mothers of Preschoolers), and I’m a member of the Redbud Writers Guild. I have contributed to Ann Voskamp’s A Holy Experience, (In)courage, Gifted for Leadership, Lifeway, Fulfill, Today’s Christian Woman, Proverbs 31, Abingdon Women, Women at Risk International, and more.
