Born and raised in Turkey, my first encounter with God was through the lenses of Islam. A messy divorce and a crisis of faith later, I was an atheist teenager who knew everything. 

Then the wandering began, until I finally found truth in Christianity and my home in the Catholic Church.

In the mean time I received degrees in international relations and history. Now, with a PhD in political science, I live in a small town in the American Northeast with my husband and four children, reading, writing, enjoying coffee and kissing booboos.

This is a place where there will be talk about faith, family, fiction, fun and everything in between.

If you have some time to kill and the children are not too quiet, come and join me. 

love,
