Got a writing project you need help with? Drop me a note at kristinarobbdover@gmail.com.

In the New Year I’ve started a freelance writing gig to support my family. (In previous posts I’ve shared a bit about the various challenges that go along with parenting a child with special needs, one of which is providing for the various early-intervention therapies—hence this new adventure.) Now, if you’d like to hire me to write for you, your organization or business, you can.

If you’re interested in learning more about the kinds of writing I’ve done and can do for businesses and non-profits, drop by my brand-new writer’s website, which came to fruition during Atlanta’s big snow-in yesterday, and consider sharing it with friends or colleagues who have a need for top-quality writing at affordable rates. Now, for a limited time, when you refer a viable client to me—so no, your pet boa constrictor Elmer doesn’t count— you’ll get a free copy of my book Grace Sticks.

A big thank you goes to photographer Erin Brauer (of Something Pretty) for her great work—yes, I finally decided to shelve the selfie and get a few professional shots—and to Christian and Shari for opening their home to us during our photo shoot.

Mental Health Break—Sprawl II
My favorite band these days is Arcade Fire, and I've featured the Canadian indie rock group before at this intersection between God and life. The lead singer studied Kirkegaard in college and their songs, like this one, are often subtle but brilliant critiques of the least aesthetically pleasing thi

Fellow saint and sinner Saskia de Vries is a neuroscientist in Seattle, Washington and has posted before at this intersection between God and life. She, like so many of us, is grappling with the tragedies of Eric Garner and Michael Brown and the larger systemic problem they seem to reveal—namely,

Advent and Emptiness, Via Louis CK and the Prophet Isaiah
I've been making my way through the book of Isaiah. This morning's reading was from chapter 6, where the prophet Isaiah receives his call to go to the people of Israel and proclaim God's judgment of a people who have wandered away from God's purposes for them. Isaiah asks how long God's people will

Advent Resurrection
It may seem strange to pair Advent with resurrection. Usually resurrection comes more naturally at Easter. But at heart the labor pangs of all creation giving birth to the Christ child are a longing for a new start. Advent is a longing to be born again. Neuroscience now teaches that every minu
