I write about what I'm learning as a flawed human being whom Jesus is restoring daily to be able to love, serve & live better.
I write about the ways I'm learning to advocate for the vulnerable in a way that is honoring, empowering and holistic.
I write about where life takes me, the people I meet, the things I see and the ways I'm challenged by all of that.
Baltimore is one of the most dangerous, disparate cities in America, yet people call it "Charm City." I like that because God pretty much does the same thing for me. He calls me beautiful, his own, redeemed, even though I am anything but those things. When you go beneath the surface of the righteousness Christ has secured for me on the cross, I am still undergoing constant restoration. I am broken, filled with questions and incredibly "prone to wander." Yet because of the Gospel, I am no longer defined by my failures and mistakes.
That's why I chose this name and that's why I'm writing this blog. Whether we are talking about a city or an individual, real transformation is holistic. It affects every aspect of life - the seen and the unseen, the material and the spiritual. As I learn things in every aspect of life - my work, my relationships, my adventures - I find that it is all intimately connected, because God is transforming an entire person.
