Who am I?

My name is Joanna and I moved out to Seattle in the summer of 2007.  I’m originally from Wyoming, so there are some aspects of living in a big city that were a huge change, such as public transportation, bad traffic, and a higher cost of living.   Despite moving to a city that has the same number of residents as the state I grew up in, moving out here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  It’s been a crazy ride getting to this point, but definitely the adventure of a lifetime and wouldn‘t trade it for the world.  I’ve learned a lot about living in true community, unconditional love, and grace from God, others and myself.  I still have a long ways to go and lots more to learn, but am so thankful for God’s grace and those around me.

I love laughing, coffee, hugs, hanging out with friends, good food, theology, tattoos, music, knitting and a good bottle of wine.  My faith in God is the cornerstone of who I am, even when I’m wrestling with how I fit in the big picture.  Life is messy, but I know that is the best way to grow.
