About Amelia

Found something you love?

Lover of stories.  Detective of the divine.  Writer, speaker, teacher, minister.

I’m not a believer in an easy faith.  I think finding God and following Jesus are hard.  I think we’re called to social justice and to push the boundaries of love but I struggle to do it.  I preach better than I practice, but I am growing.  I love to ask the Hard Questions and love to hear others ask them too.

I love talking and writing about the places where spirituality meets real life.  My first nationally published article was a piece I did for Exchange magazine on the connection between passionate teaching and spirituality.  You can read it over at the Courage Renewal site, a fact I mention because it still makes me giddy.  Courage Renewal’s founder Parker Palmer is a hero of mine and if you haven’t read anything of his, you should.

I blog because I love to write and think and needed a place to hold all the stuff in my head.  (Also because as I transitioned into professional freelance writing, my ego needed a place to write what I wanted, when I wanted.  Nothing soothes the rejection-weary soul like instantaneous publishing!)

I live with my husband and daughter in gorgeous Colorado where I spend way too much time on the computer but love every minute of touching people’s lives. I love a good workout, time outdoors, baking bread, reading and writing. I’m glad you’re here!
