Beautifully Rooted :: Telling the Truth






Super excited to tell you that I'm an official contributor to a brand new site called Beautifully Rooted.

It's the brainchild of Rachel Reeves and Heather Hamilton, so you can bet it's stylish and quirky and all flushed with love.

I find myself gravitating toward people with open hearts, these days. I like real and flawed and grace washed. I like a little messy, some grit along with the gleam, and I find it all there. It's a community for me and for you where we'll be challenged to slow down, take notice, bask in what already is, create as an offering. 



A couple of weeks ago, clawing for sleep that stayed just out of reach, I bared my soul and my heart and all of my weird, neurotic fears and failures to God. It was different from most of the prayers I pray and now there's just no going back.

I wrote about it here.

    I commented on your FB page and again want to say THANKS for the Marisa de los Santos recommendation! I am IN LOVE with her writing.

    She reminds me a lot of my best pal.

    Mexico was healing...looking forward to taking my gritty and messy self OVA to this site!

  5. "I like real and flawed and grace washed"

    I like that sentence. And didn't even know that was what I liked until I read it. Thank you for shaping that thought in my mind.

  9. Am totally inspired to read a blog full of words from christian women. In a country where christianity is often not valued, it feels like a haven of truth. x

  11. You've always been open and honest and funny but you've morphed a bit lately. Maybe it's the move, I dunno. I've gone from casual reader to full on junkie.

  13. You have an amazing ability to blend words together in a way that makes me want to hold onto your sentences and save them for later when I need something to enlighten me. Your words are like a painting...full of life and truth. Thanks.
