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 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.
