Hi! I’m Becky and 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.
I realized in this crazy dance of life that 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 and I fall asleep praying.
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.
Why I’m Here
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 be encouraged here to embrace real grace in the middle of all the good, bad, and messy parts of life.
I write 2-3 times per week in this little corner. I hope each post helps you discover something new about yourself, your faith and your world. You can follow along by clicking here. 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.
Before you go! Make sure to grab a copy of Dare to Believe: A Manifesto of Faith, my gift to you for being…you! You’ll also get top secret reader newsletters and encouraging notes from My Ink Dance.
