About Me

{When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.” Then Jesus turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Luke 7:36-39. 44-50 NIV}

My Alabaster Heart was inspired by this story & a deep desire to live and write authentically.
As someone who has struggled to find her identity for her whole adult life, I know how easy it can be
to fall prey to the envy of seemingly perfect lives paraded on social media.
Everything looks better with a VSCO filter, right?

So here’s a place you can come to read about how I make a mess of my daily life.
A place where I’ll write about the things I’m learning.
The things I’m doing.
The things I love.
A place of growth.
A place of grace.

I’ve always been told I am too much –
too open
too snobby
too loud
too quiet
too Christian
too liberal
too this
too that.

So this is me embracing my muchness, embracing the heart I’ve been given & pouring it all out:
Typically with a cup of coffee, often with a glass of wine, & sometimes with a shot of tequila.
