Thanks for stopping by my online home! I’m an author, speaker, journalist and former presidential speechwriter – as well as a wife and mom of four who loves good books, tough hikes and quiet moments with God (when I can get them). My passion is connecting today’s busy women and men with the spiritual wisdom of those who went before us, and sharing my own stories and struggles so we all feel less alone. I hope you’ll make yourself at home here and join me on this journey.

Here’s a free sample of The Heart of Perfection audiobook, narrated by yours truly. If you want to read the book alongside Scripture, you might enjoy my new five-day reading plan for the YouVersion Bible App.
Of course, if you want the full story about the lessons the recovering perfectionist saints taught me—and can teach all of us—about trading the perfectionist trap for God’s holy freedom, pick up a copy of The Heart of Perfection, available via the links below or anywhere books are sold. Happy reading!
