Teller of stories. Writer of poems.

Lifelong member of the tribe of humanity.

If you’re looking for hope, this is the place where I share mine.

My name is Janna. I’m the grown-up daughter of a Baptist preacher and his Southern belle wife. My husband became a pastor five years ago, and we live with two of our three kids in Knoxville, TN.

I don’t believe in giving easy answers to tough questions, but I have found sacred moments of grace and beauty nearly everywhere. I just have to remember to keep my eyes open.

Life is amazing and beautiful and sometimes dark and dirty, so I write to help myself make sense of it all. I hope you find some honest encouragement here, too.​
