Who Am I?

2016-11-27-reeves-pictures-1793I get the name of my blog from a verse in the Bible, in the small but mighty book of Jude. Jude was one of Jesus’ brothers. He was talking to Christians when he said, “Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people” (Jude 1:3, New International Version). I feel like there’s been a whole lot of watering down of the gospel going on lately, and it’s just not right. My goal is to encourage you to consider who Jesus was and to follow Him with your whole heart.

I’m a wife of one and a mom of three. I’m a writer. I’m a follower of Jesus. Not necessarily in that order. I’m a lover of dogs (especially my black Lab, Berkeley, pictured here), cats, and various and sundry other animals, many of which live in my house. I’m an adult orphan, and that may come up every once in awhile in my posts. I worked with Cru, a community of compassionate Christians connecting people with God, for 32 years as a writer, editor, production manager and senior copy editor for their magazine, Worldwide Challenge. before leaving this year to pursue a full time writing career.

I love baseball. During the season that might come up a bit, too. I also love the Oakland Raiders. I grew up in the Oakland hills in California’s San Francisco Bay Area with two sisters and one brother. We’re spread way too far out to see each other as often as we’d like, but we connect via Facebook most days. Except for my brother. He doesn’t do Facebook. But his kids do, so I connect with them, anyway.

I’d love to hear from you, so please leave comments. I don’t think I’ll probably ever be very controversial, but you never know. I am from California, you know. Thanks for stopping by!
