New for 2023: Monthly Zoom Chats
One of my favorite parts of this writing gig is getting to engage with individual readers in person. I am an introvert’s introvert and it’s tough with a capital T for me to stand in a room with more than ten people and not want to run home immediately.
However, there are sometimes these magical moments when I’m standing face to face with someone who has read or followed my work or life for years, they’ve sent me cards and congratulations, they’ve shared my prayers and grief, and here they are, flesh and blood with me. Writing can often feel like pouring water into a bucket full of holes, but not in those moments. In those moments I want to cry and hug and look in their eyes and say, “Thank you for seeing me, and I want you to know it is such a gift to now see you.”
I’m not in a season of life where entering those spaces happens often for me, but I do want to endeavor to close that gap a little bit in 2023.
Beginning next Tuesday, I will be hosting monthly Zoom conversations around specific topics for paying subscribers. You get to choose the topics by commenting your suggestions below and I’ll choose the order in which we chat about them. But the aim will simply be to be together in a room of sorts and say, “You too? Me too?”
The chats will always take place at noon on the second Tuesday of the month. I will send out an email in the 24 hours before with the Zoom details so you can access it.
I’m really excited to begin this endeavor and I hope you are too.

PS. I never want money to prohibit anyone from reading or participating, so if that’s a need for you, just drop me an email and I’ll get you in.
