5 Fast Facts About Katrina:

  1. I have listened to victims of tornadoes, cholera, fire, and war, which are recorded in my books.
  2. My husband Marnell and I met January 23, 2016 at a women’s conference! (He was running sound and I was leading a workshop.)
  3. I have two birthdays, legal and real. When I was born in Goshen, Indiana, Dr. Abel wrote 5-23-1982 on my birth certificate. The date was June 23, but no one noticed his mistake until we went to get my driver’s permit.
  4. When I was a teenager, I crocheted doilies and sold them at the farmer’s market in Wausau, WI. 
  5. I have touched a beating human heart. See my reflections here!  

Highlighting God's work Through Stories of Survival

Since my husband and I are looking forward to being parents for the first time in May 2021, you will see my blog topics morph. I am also entering the world of children’s book writing with a series of books based on my childhood adventure story-telling. 

  • I write about Brady Street, beggars, boy boarders (fall 2019) and the occasional bullets. My husband and I live in a neighborhood many would call broken.  A knock on the door often means a request for money, a phone call, coffee creamer, or a ride to the doctor. 
  • I write about my own struggles with overeating and depression.

NOTE: Currently, we are not actively producing new podcast episodes in either division. 

  • 500 Words – ten podcasts drawing lessons from ten years as a published author. This series originated May 2020. 
  • Voices of Survival – Currently unavailable.
