I married a man named Dan, whom I believe in more than I have ever believed in another person. After several months of knowing him, I decided that I just couldn’t stand not to be a part of his life forever.
We are the proud, smitten, amateur parents of the most beautiful creature ever to prance the face of the earth: five-year-old Madeline, her little brother, Samuel “Dimples” Conner, and our brand new baby Henry.
Last year I wrote a blog post that crashed my website; it received more than 2 million views in less than 2 weeks. I got a lot of comments saying I was enlightened; I also got a lot of comments saying that I was a misogynist &#%#*@@$!% %@%!^ !#*&%. So I’m doing what any sane person would do – I’m writing a book about it. My post was called “10 Things I Want To Tell Teenage Girls.” I wrote it at 2:00 am on a Saturday night, based on my 6-year stint in youth ministry. My three books (one for parents/influencers of teens, one for teenage girls, and one for teenage boys) are all slated to be released in August 2014, and they are so. much. fun. (You can read more about them here.)
I would happily live out of a suitcase if I could travel the world. I want to learn all the languages. I use bobby pins only slightly less than I use oxygen. I believe in music and coffee and prose. And in all the world, nothing has taken hold of me like Christ.
