who am i?

Hi! I’m Becky and I’m almost as new here as you are. I’m glad you’re here; I’ve never really liked being alone.

I’m here for both of us. I’m desperately trying to let go of perfect as I realize I am a writer today. Not tomorrow, not someday, but today in the imperfect now. (Thank you Jeff Goins) I realized I’d rather get the steps wrong than sit on the sidelines with an empty dance card. So I’m here exploring life through writing and writing through life. I hope my dance will inspire you, challenge you, and help you know that you’re not alone.

Beyond the Ink

I’m loved by a God so full of grace that my mistakes look like part of the dance. I am faith-filled, but buck institution. I’ve been healed, adopted and forgiven by Jesus, yet I forget to read my Bible sometimes and I fall asleep praying at night.

I like control, though wish someone else would take it (as long as they do it right). I struggle with who I am (just read this and this to see what I mean).

I married my high school sweetheart (at 18!) and we have 3 amazing kids that challenge me daily. We live in our hometown and have a beautifully ordinary life.

I get lost in books and check out with tv. I like milk chocolate better than dark, even though it’s not hip. I’ll take tea over coffee, thank you. And I firmly believe the beach is best off season.

I love sweets, but nothing artificial. So, I hope you’ll never find my words candy coated in aspartame. I long for real more than perfect, which is a pretty tall order. I’m here finding out where this writing journey takes me. That’s hard for me as I’m much more of a destination person than a journey person. I hope you’ll find the dance inspiring and honest.

If you want to get to know me better, and maybe even parts of yourself, stick around. I promise I’ll be real, but I can’t promise I’ve got it all figured out.

  1. Hi Becky, loved your blog today. I, too, am a lover of trees and how they represent God and His glory. I am a five minute Friday’er as well. I am posted right after yours, and wanted to encourage you. Have a great day!

  2. Hello there, I’m a South African living in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. I would love to follow you – I’m shocking on email, but FB is so much easier…..do you have a group page on FB?
    Leonie 😉
