About Me

My name is Katie, or Katie Bug or Kdbug. I decided in middle school that I was going to own that childhood nickname because there were just way too stinkin' many Katies in the world. I even had "Kdbug" embroidered on my high school letter jacket where the name goes. Yep. I'm that dork.


I am a teacher-turned-youth-pastor-turned-stay-at-home-mom. I love Jesus and want to be known as a doer of the Word, not just a passive listener. This blog is just one small attempt to share what I learn along the way.


I am married to Jonny, a freelance IT consultant who works hard for our family and loves us with a loyalty like you will never see anywhere else in your life, short of Jesus. For real. He humbles me daily.


Our little surprise miracle is Gavrel Lagersen, more affectionately known as Monkey Man. Too smart for his own good, he keeps me on my toes as he learns and grows every day - and I learn and grow right along with him!

Still a miracle, but slightly more intentionally on our parts, Declan Ezekiel joined our little family in 2013. I'm pretty sure it doesn't get much sweeter than this little Bitsy Boy!


To round out our little circus sideshow, we have two dogs with enough personality to be considered extra people around here. Benni is a Cairn Terrier (like Toto) who wants to be underfoot at all times, and Nellie is a beagle-whippet mix - yeah, get your head around that one - with a mind of her own.
