Hey, I’m Brittney and I’m on a journey and I’d love for you to join me. Christ has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, but now is a time of freshness and vigor to study and grow. Do you feel it? The need to stop coasting along in your spiritual life and what others say about faith and figure it out for yourself… the need to think out loud and question. This is that place.
My life journey started back in Iowa in the small town of Calamus (population 400 when you count the cats and dogs.)
I was known as a “born performer” who would sing and dance to the jukebox at the pizza joint as a preschooler. As an only child I spent plenty of time with my parents and their friends. I often found it more comfortable to talk with adults than her peers- discussing things like church issues and politics.
Church was a huge part of my upbringing. My family joined a start-up church that met in an elementary school and I eventually married in that same church 17 years later (with the same pastor!) My husband Andrew and I met at Trinity International University in suburban Chicago. Ironically we both made commitments to Christ at the age of five. We have lived on both coasts and the Midwest since they married in 1996. Interestingly enough, we are now a part of a start-up church with our own children- Lindsey, 15 and Micah, 9.
In an ideal world I would like to live in Bedford Falls (next to the Baileys) from her favorite movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I love to sip “gas station” cappuccino, eat flourless (gluten-free) chocolate cake, talk with friends, shop for deals, waste time on Facebook, and read books about getting organized- that for some reason do NOT include a magic wand!
Thanks for visiting.
