It's been forever since I've had the chance to update this site because both busy mundanity and ground-shaking upheaval has intervened.
After eight wonderful, hard, life-changing years with InterVarsity Graduate and Faculty Ministries, Jonathan (my husband) and I accepted a new position as co-Associate Rectors at Church of the Ascension in Pittsburgh, PA and we moved here in January. I still love InterVarsity and am connected to their work as an IVP author and supporter of campus ministry.
I am also oh-so-very homesick for Austin. I miss it everyday--friends and family, of course, but also breakfast tacos and sun-blasted skin and deep, spring-fed pools and chips and salsa served at breakfast with iced coffee.
Now, we are slowly discovering Pittsburgh and who we are in this new place. We love our new congregation and have been overwhelmed by their generosity and hospitality. It's been a month full of getting lost (Pittsburgh defeated my GPS), learning names (and forgetting them and re-learning them), and seeing God's mercy in new, sometimes difficult, deeply beautiful ways.
Things have been a little slower with writing as a result of the transition, but here are some highlights of the past few months:
-The Chicago Tribune featured my book at the beginning of Lent.
-Christianity Today ran an excerpt from Liturgy of the Ordinary entitled 'Fighting with My Husband and the Work of Shalom'
-Anna Gissing from InterVarsity's The Well Interviewed me about LotO
-Rod Dreher profiled my work as an example of how evangelicals might live out the Benedict Option, how we are formed in the faith in our post-Christian age
-Nate Foster interviewed me for the Renovaré Podcast about LotO
Also, I updated the long-neglected 'Upcoming Events' section. Check it out to see if I'll coming to a location near you soon!
