As parents, anytime we step out of the mainstream and try to lead our homes against cultural norms, it’s hard. We need God’s help and encouragement from each other as we try to navigate upstream. I’m excited about some friends helping me write a new parenting series that will hopefully offer both.
Janel has a resume that would impress anyone. We met one day for a couple of hours and it felt like we’d known each other forever. She writes about discovering God’s undeserved, indescribable favor–grace–that has turned her life on its head. She lives in Africa with her family and her writing will inspire you!

Katy Rose’s family has had an eventful journey, or at least it’s felt that way to them. “Some seasons have been comfortable and some strenuous, but as I look back it’s always those seemingly uncertain steps of faith that fostered the deepest joy.”
Katy’s husband currently works toward the abolition of child trafficking and exploitation with Love146.
They have a couple fantastic and highly energetic boys, and the sweetest baby foster son in all the land. (I answer some questions here about foster care.) In the past I worked primarily in domestic violence prevention in NYC. Now I’m so grateful to get to spend my days raising little humans and all that entails. Though I’ve never been stretched and challenged as much, I wouldn’t trade these days for anything.
