Hey, I’m Diana and I’m the gal who runs this joint.
(The picture on the left is the shiny me and the pic on the right is the real me.)
About six years ago I was a non-believer who thought Christians were either a) dumb as rocks or b) lying about believing. Since my conversion, I’ve often wondered why Christians seem so……“shiny?” Those shiny Christians say perfect, neat things like “God has a plan” or “I’ll pray for you.” And, even though He DOES totally have a plan (and I’ll take all the prayers I can get!) my walk has always been more complicated than that.
How complicated? Well, sometimes when I’m elbow deep in a sink full of dirty dishes the thought “what if there is only nothingness after this life, no heaven, no hell, just NOTHING” will hit me like a ton of bricks. On this blog, I talk about why it’s ok to have those types of thoughts and what we can do with them.
I’m really big on truth telling, showing the mess and meeting people exactly where they are. I am the most extroverty extrovert that ever extroverted and I’m not great at thinking before I speak. (You can get a better feel for who I am and what I’m about here.)
I love writing, oversharing and drinking too much red wine. I’m a (mediocre) mom with 5 kids (our oldest is 9 years old) and I totally married up. (Check my dude out below.)
Before I wrap this up, it’s important that you know this: I’m kind of a big deal. I wrote a piece for Aleteia this one time and Scott Hahn said my conversion story was (wait for it…..) “well written.” So, yeah, technically speaking, I’m famous and stuff. Happy to send you autographs or kiss your baby or whatever.
On a serious note, I’m SO glad you stopped by, and I hope you’ll take a second to say hi below because I legitimately want to talk to you!!
