For those who struggle and straggle and still keep seeking.
Welcome to Heart Callings.
A place for those who follow in the way of Jesus. Kind of. Sort of... Honestly, who knows?
The spiritual journey is seldom straight forward. Even if you're not sure where you are, you're welcome here.
Join me in the Community of Holy Stragglers
A place to talk about Christian faith. Even if you're not sure. Especially if you're not sure. A place to be challenged, reassured, and welcomed. A place to learn together, struggle together, wonder together, pray together, laugh together.
A place for messy faith.
June Straggler Study
How dare we speak of joy?
"Don't worry, be happy" doesn't go very far when we're struggling with a pandemic. Paul experienced some tough times of his own. We're going to revisit what he has to say about joy in this meditative study of Philippians.
Available for all members of the Community of Holy Stragglers.
Community of Holy Stragglers Podcast

Listening for grace in the every day and meeting a dog named Bear.
My dog, Bear, joined us for our Leap Day Launch Party celebrating the publication of my latest book, Monday Morning Manna.
In this video from that day I share some of the stories from the book, reflect upon the spiritual discipline of paying attention to grace in the everyday, and, of course, introduce you to Bear. Enjoy!
"Your devotions never fail to touch that place inside where God dwells..."
This beloved devotional book has been translated into Norwegian and Japanese by readers who wanted to share it.
Ruth Sprague of Birmingham, UK, wrote:
I just wanted to write and thank you for “Strugglers, Stragglers and Seekers”. I am all of those things but on days when God feels far or I am too exhausted to pursue faith your devotions never fail to touch that place inside where God dwells. They comfort, encourage and challenge but never condemn, never make me feel more guilt or shame.
