Welcome to Oatmeal Heart! Ezekiel 36:26 says "I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I put within you. I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." God continues to make my heart like oatmeal, mushy and malleable, molded to his purposes. With this new softness, I pursue His glory by experimenting with how to love my husband and son and community extravagantly, as He extravagantly loves us. 

I have the privilege of serving on the Dayton Women in the Word leadership team as the blog and podcast coordinator. For two years, I've also been discipling women from my home, teaching DWITW Bible studies, and speaking to local women's groups about the breadth and length and height and depth of God's love for us.

For my personal stories, visit Apex Anthologies and read Hustle, Hush and Where Jesus Is

In this blog you will experience by enthusiasm for Jesus, God's Word, motherhood ventures, coffee o'clock, Dayton, OH, killer brownies, books and bookworms, and avocados.
