Welcome to Sweet Messy Faith!
This website is my internet home. A place where I can share my books, my art, and my thoughts with readers. I want to reach kids for Christ, write books that encourage their mamas, and create resources for homeschoolers.
My first love is fiction, because it was fiction that drew my young heart to the reality of Christ. You can read how my faith influences my fiction here.
But I also write non-fiction because we mamas have the opportunity to disciple the next generation. Discipleship is beautiful. It is messy. It is overwhelming. It is uplifting. It can be down-right frustrating. It will make you lean on God like nothing else you have ever encountered. And God wants us to weave our faith into all of it. Every single sweet, messy moment.
As an author I have made the odd choice not to just linger on one genre. I believe that if I also have the non-fiction words to encourage a mother, or the art skills to share a Bible coloring journal, or the ability to put together homeschooling resources, then I must share those too!
You won't find me on social media. Not really. I have the accounts, but well, just not the attention span! I choose to focus on that which matters most to me. The time I have with my children is fleeting. The moments I have with each of them do not come with second chances. And the me-time I do have, I choose to invest in creating books (if I stop to post about something, then you know it really was important to me).
