Where I came from: I was born in Des Moines, Iowa and grew up just outside the city in Waukee. I've lived in Iowa, South Dakota, China, England, Michigan and Texas and have learned that all of those places hold beauty, but Iowa will always be my home.
My family: Michael is my partner in parenting and pastoring. We've been married since 2003, and together we are raising three of the most hilarious, beautiful, inspiring, creative . . . and frustrating creatures ever. Every single day with our three girls is an adventure, and I look forward to each one.
My favorite meal: Anything with roasted veggies, garbanzo beans and cheese.
