Hi!  Welcome to my blog – I’m glad you are here!  Let me introduce myself:  My name is Kirsten (pronounced Keer-sten) and I’m married to an amazingly creative husband and the mom of 7 & 8 year old girls.  I love Jesus, London Fog tea, board games, canoe trips, theology and a good novel.  I am always on the lookout for what it means to live the abundant life (John 10:10) and crave stories of people who are thriving in their place in this world.  I want to honestly wrestle with the difficult issues of faith, life and family and find hope in every circumstance.  I have been a missionary, pastor, community leader and student but right now I am a full time sojourner recovering from burnout, learning to Sabbath and finding a new normal!
