My name is Echo. I read a lot. I write a lot. I homeschool my four kids. I married my high school sweetheart and we are raising our family in a little house nestled in the hills of Tennessee.
I have learned a lot and have a lot left to learn.
My experiences with miscarriage, pregnancy and birth, two NICU stays, postpartum depression, mothering four littles, fourteen years of marriage, an evolving faith, traveling the country (and other countries), reading, listening, hip surgery, the death of too many loved ones, and the ups and downs of pursuing my passion (writing) while remaining devoted to my purpose (my husband and my children), have made me who I am today- a softer, quieter version of the zealot I became in my youth.
More than anything I want to pass on the nuggets of beauty and wisdom I have been lucky enough to find.
I enjoy collaborating on creative projects, editing, researching and teaching.
I also enjoy traveling, hiking, running and spending time with friends and family.
I feel big feelings, remain permanently three steps behind in all housework, am a hopeless night owl living in a morning person’s world and have found that I am great at starting things and not so great at finishing them.
I crave nature. And sunsets. And coffee. And quiet. I am captivated by moving music, history and museums, well-told stories and thought-provoking conversations.
I believe in love.
My desire is to be a kind voice and provide an empathic space for people to be themselves, to find the beautiful and work through the brutal.
Or you can find me here:
If you are ever in Nashville you might spot me on a run through the farmland near my house, writing at a coffee shop, reading on my front porch or sitting in a lawn chair beside my husband watching our kid play soccer.
I would love to hear your story and how you found me. Thanks for visiting. 🙂
