My Ink Dance

Discovering Extraordinary Grace in an Ordinary Life

I believe in embracing grace in the messy real of life.

At My Ink Dance, I capture hard, uncomfortable, often unspoken feelings and bring light, honesty and God’s truth to them in a relatable way.

My Ink Dance is a place where you can find real, honest conversation about things that can be hard to talk about:

When we can be real with our thoughts and our questions, our doubts and our beliefs, we can become more of who we are meant to be.

This blog started out of my deep longing to write. It’s something that has simmered just beneath the surface for as long as I can remember. I dipped my pen a few times, but it’s always fizzled out. I’ve realized that writing is like a dance with flow and starts and stops. But it takes practice. So I’m here. Practicing. Writing through the hard places so I can find the light.

I will do my best to real and honest, because I believe anything less is a lie. I’ll likely make mistakes and have people disagree with me and that’s ok. I’m a real person longing for progress over perfection that paralyzes.

For more, like my thoughts on chocolate or to see my cutie pies, head over to Meet Becky. I can’t wait to see you there!

  3. I love the title of your blog! Mine is similar with the whole ink and printing out of words! (Tripping Over Typeset) I look forward to reading more of this dance!

  4. I’m striving to be real too. Often I feel like I come across as fake when I write articles. Trying to be vulnerable and open, and trying to be okay with failing and trying new things. Great to know I’m not alone.

  5. Well said!! You are indeed a writer NOW!!!
