My name is Kate, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I’d love to hear from you! Feel free to fill out the form at the bottom of this page, and your message will be sent directly to my e-mail address.
Thanks in advance for getting in touch!
To introduce myself a bit, I grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan before spending ten years living in Cape Town, South Africa. I’m married to a South African man, and we have three children.
My first book, a memoir, is forthcoming in 2017 through Discovery House.
This blog is called Heading Home because I strive to remind myself every day that this world is not our home. This life is just temporary, and yet every day is one step closer to eternity.
I write about a wide range of topics here, including parenting, grief, diversity, and book reviews, but my main goal is to encourage readers to keep an eternal perspective. To remember that we’re just pilgrims here — just passing by on our way to our forever home.
My e-book, Letters to Grief, is available on Amazon. I wrote it for you. For those of you who have known grief as an intimate companion, and those of you who know others who have suffered loss. I pray that it will be an encouragement to you.
I also use this space to host a delightful community called Five Minute Friday, where bloggers the world over join together to write for five minutes on a one word prompt.
Personally, I started writing when my mom was in the final stages of terminal cancer.
It was a lifeline.
Writing ministered to me in a way I never thought it could.
In so many ways, I wrote for myself. It was therapeutic, a release, a much-needed exhale.
That was three years ago, and I haven’t stopped.
In the interim, the Lord has slowly shown me that my writing is about so much more than writing for myself.
It’s about writing for Him.
It’s about writing for you.
He has taken my meager offerings and helped me to see that words matter. They can be a ministry.
And that is my prayer. Simply, that if even one person is blessed by my weakness, glory to God.
So thank you for reading. May the Lord use these posts for His glory.
