About this Blog

I came up with the title at about 4:30 a.m. after being awakened by my baby girl, who occasionally decides she needs to tell herself a story in the middle of the night. Here are the thoughts behind it:

Foremost, I'm a follower of Jesus, and I want my life to be the good soil he spoke of in his parable in Matthew 13.

I'm also farm kid from southwest Ohio. I love to grow things ... so much so that my husband and I installed some good sized flower beds in the back yard of our townhome, even though said yard is about the size of a postage stamp. So, this blog will be about the things I love to do, including playing in the dirt.

Third, whenever my dad has an opportunity to engage in some good philosophical or theological conversation, he calls it "sniffing deep dirt." This blog will have some of that, too.

Finally, the most important thing I'm "growing" right now is a little girl named Lorien Grace. You'll get to watch her grow here.

Happy reading.
