I started this blog when I was studying for my master’s in English in England, hence “English Lessons.” When I moved back to the U.S. in 2009 feeling like a very different person from a year before, I considered changing the blog title to something more applicable, but I just couldn’t. I realized after a few months that I was still learning English lessons every day in various ways. My life was forever changed by living as a foreigner for a brief time and really, when do we ever stop learning about our own language?
From fall 2009 to fall 2014, I worked at a publishing house in Nashville, Tennessee. I started as an editorial assistant and eventually became a publicist. For five years I learned from the very best and smartest people about what it takes to get a book out the door. Let me tell you, it is a tiny miracle each time.
Now, I am learning how to write full time. Perhaps my biggest English Lesson thus far. I piddled in freelance writing for a few years and I piddled in creative writing. It’s time to be serious about it. I write here every Monday and if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll see where else I’ve been writing. Maybe here, here or here.
I write about God a lot since I’m a Christian. I write about relationships of all sorts. I write about grace and what it means. I write about being a woman, and what that means. I welcome comments and ideas and questions. A life not questioned is not a life worth living. A faith not questioned is not a faith worth having. I plan to never stop asking.
