My name is Frances. I started this blog over 5 years ago as a place to post all of the thoughts that I’d been writing during a difficult season in my life. I hoped I would remember the lessons I was learning. Now, I write because I love it. I get inspired by many things and want to share what I’m thinking. I love to hear what you’re thinking, too, so please chime in!
I’m a “retired” communication pastor who’s taught on everything from healthy leadership to hermeneutics with humor and honesty. I currently bring the same passion and skills to share the lessons I’m learning on my journey as a stay-at-home mom to my two kiddos, Thomas and Joanna. Motherhood has been a blessing to me and a great source of inspiration for understanding God & faith, though it was an unexpected turn in my life, for sure. I hope to empower and encourage others to thrive in whatever circumstances they encounter.
I have been married since September 2007 to a wonderful man named Matt. He is my favorite sounding board and one of the best gifts God has ever given me. Matt and I love parenting, leading, and teaching together. We live near San Jose, CA.
