HerStory: Meet Natasha

Author, Natasha Sistrunk Robinson Meet my friend and fellow Redbud Writers Guild member, Natasha. This woman is a force, in the absolute best way. Within moments of meeting, I was drawn to her infectious passion, joy, and spirit. She consistently lives out her leadership gifts and shares her hard-earned wisdom in the recently published book, Mentor for Life: Finding […]

HerStory: Meet Roxie

I grew up in a small Midwestern town. We had good schools, a lovely rural landscape, and nice people. And probably THE nicest was Roxie Kaminski, the secretary at my junior high school and mother of one of my classmates. We’ve recently reconnected over social media and I discovered her delightful parenting memoir Puzzle Piece […]

HerStory: Meet Chelsey

Oh, this girl. She’s pretty amazing. I’m lucky to claim her as family, we’re cousins-in-law (is that a thing?); she married my step-cousin a few years ago. We live geographically far apart, but stay in touch pretty well through social media. When I attended my grandmother’s funeral in North Dakota last month, we were able […]

HerStory: Jenn

Jenn was one of the first women I connected with after moving to Hoboken, NJ. She was immediately welcoming and invited us to her family’s BBQ one of the first weekends we tried a new church (where we ended up staying). In our two years together there, Jenn became a close friend. We were in […]

HerStory: Meet Rachel

Rachel is my absolute oldest friend. We’ve known each other since we both moved into neighboring circa 1960’s tri-level homes around age 5, the makings for an immediate friendship in our corner of a mundane Northwest Indiana suburb. We also were in church and AWANA together (she rocked the crazy purse night), had sleepovers where […]

HerStory: Meet Lisa

Lisa and I met on-line. 🙂 She was looking for a domain name and one thing led to another and well…she found my blog. She couldn’t believe all the similarities between us, touched base and we connected over the phone. Now I’m lucky enough to be able to have her in my life, even if […]

HerStory: Meet Christy

My story in a few sentences: I am an overachiever who always believed in God but thought I was the architect of my own life. It took me a while to learn that since all my gifts are not my own but from Him, I needed to believe Him instead of just believing in Him. […]

HerStory: Melissa

Melissa and I met during college, where we both were in the nursing program. We reconnected via social media and she’s been an great encouragement to me with my blog. I think you’ll see she’s passionate about the Lord and her family and eating real food in an age where food has morphed into a […]

HerStory: Nicole

Nicole and I met at church and have done a few projects together, but we really got to know each other more this summer when a small group of us did a Bible study called Restless, by Jennie Allen. (Yeah for the intimacy that small groups can provide when people are both real and supportive […]

HerStory: Meet Josie

I found out about Josie through a meeting with my friend Allison, who is doing ministry with college students through the Christian organization CRU this fall.   It was a blessing to hear her heart, her stories, and that she had raised a lot of her own support already. At one point she mentioned she […]
