Hi, I’m Kelly

The escapist in me is to blame for my love-affair with writing– which began with reading.

The escapist in me is also to blame for my love-affair with Jesus. This world can be beautiful, but it’s also broken.  Most of us don’t have to look any farther than the mirror to come to that conclusion. Anyone who wants to escape, wants to escape the broken. My books are temporary refuges; they are sandcastles that wash away the moment I close the cover. Jesus is a stone castle, a fortification that stands against any storm. My writing has been described as dark, and as a Christian I’m still ok with that. Darkness shows off the light ever so prettily.

I am wife to a stone-castle man, a mom to four incredibles; I’m a reader, a writer, and a poor excuse for a jogger. I’d rather do yoga. But before all that, during all that, and after that is gone I belong to Jesus.

  1. Hi Kelly! Thank you so much for liking my post, “A Geography Project You Can Sink Your Teeth Into”. I appreciate you stopping by my blog. I love the way you write and can’t wait to read more.

  3. Jesus Christ is surely a feminist, judging by his popularity among women!

    In school, a (Muslim) teacher told us most people in hell were rich and the women. He was half right.

    It’s women who make us civilized. How can they lead us to hell? In Genesis, God says “I shall put enmity between you and her” to Satan.

    It’s women who hate evil. It’s men who do evil. Check any prison and see for yourself, teacher.

  4. When Pakistanis see a child growing into a bad guy, they advise his parents “marry him”. I say “throw him to the lions” (if he’s too evil and a disobedient husband).

  5. If your child is learning to respect you and obey you, he’ll definitely be a good, obedient husband and hence, Jesus won’t wrestle with him, but he’ll be blessed. Wish you good luck and for your good son, too.
