A little about me...

Hello, friend! Welcome to my blog!

My name is Meredith and I am first and foremost a follower of Jesus. I love words and hand-written letters and stationery and pens. I am an unabashed bookworm, a developing story-teller, and a dark chocolate snob. I will never turn down an invitation for tea and deep conversations about life and faith. 

I am lover-wife to my handsome, humble, oh-so-wonderful and wonderfully supportive Nate, who flies F-16s and is great at grilling, guitar, goofiness, and being a husband and father. Together we slay dragons, make dinner, make love, and do life in the context of our faith. I am a stay-at-home mommy to an adorable wiggleworm named Sean, our rainbow baby and our daily delight. Our beautiful twin girls, Livia and Lucy, are wandering the fields of Heaven, hand-in-hand, under Jesus' loving and watchful eye. (You can read their story here and about my journey in bereaved motherhood under the posts tagged "grief".)

 When I need to understand something more, to mull it over, to work it out, I write about it– and then I like to share it on this blog.

I believe that God gives grace for every day, every circumstance, every challenge and hardship– we just have to look for it. Much (though not all) of what I write in this blog is that struggle to see, to move from darkness into the light, to put on the lens of grace and see the resulting beauty.

Won't you join me?
