I'm a goer learning how to stay. I identify with lots of "former's"--former Floridian, Chicagoan, missionary, middle school teacher, Chinese language student and single. But now I'm wife to an audio book narrator/actor and mama to three kids four and under and live at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. The title "scraping raisins" comes from the feeling of going on a run and having my thoughts all loosen up--just like those last stubborn raisins in the box. Here, you'll find thoughts on faith, justice, family and cross-cultural issues. I'd love to connect over social media, so be sure and link up with me there as well! Welcome to this space, I hope we can learn together.
