Months ago Krista’s sister Kendra said to Krista, “You have to meet Katie!” Soon after, Krista told Alex the same thing. And now we are saying to you, “You have to meet Katie!”
A writing instructor at Whitworth University, a contributor to the popular Coffee and Crumbs blog, Katie’s writing is stunning. It puts words to our feelings and more importantly points us toward a larger truth as we grapple with the uncomfortable. Her own journey this summer has been marked by her son’s developmental diagnosis, moving him from temporary delays to perhaps lifelong challenges. This has shaped every aspect of Katie’s life. From her work to her marriage to her faith, she keeps returning to what she knows to be true. About her family. And about who God is.
You will hear Katie’s tender spirit in this conversation as we talk about this journey she is still on, what has helped her the last few months, and how she memorizes Scripture. From pens to cold brew coffee Katie’s life (and writing) are in the details. We’re not kidding when we say, “You have to meet Katie!”
You can listen to our conversation with Katie on iTunes right here.
