The Road Ahead

The name comes from a line in Ellie Holcomb’s song, “Find You Here.”

You promise that You'll come and meet us on the road ahead.                                                 
And no matter what the fear says, You give me a reason to be glad.

After a tornado hit our house on December 11, 2021, the lyrics to that song have resonated with me in ways they didn’t before. It’s a reminder that even in the midst of our biggest fear and darkest nights, God will meet us there.

What You’ll Get

I love talking about creative living, faith, and sports. You’ll get a mix of all of it here.

You’ll also have access to exclusive giveaways for books and other things.
