Hi, friend, I’m Katie! Wife, mom and writer at I Choose Brave. I’m a girl in the trenches just like you, striving to do this life well and honor Christ with the days I’ve been given.
I am a small town girl, born and raised in the state of Washington, and married to the boy I dated in high school. Together we are raising our four kids, ages 10 and under, on a piece of property tucked into the countryside of Eastern Washington.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in business from Washington State University but my days are mostly spent in the busyness of running a home and educating the children that God has blessed me with. Thankfully, I also find a little time to write and speak occasionally, as I am a huge believer in cultivating the gifts and talents God has given us, in whatever portion, to bring glory to Him.
When I’m not at work on those tasks, I enjoy camping and traveling adventures with my family (well most of the time anyhow), spending time with friends and extended family, reading great books and getting a run in when I can.
I fight to write authentically, to see God in the small things and to live intentionally each and every day I have been gifted. It is my prayer that you will find hope and encouragement here, that you will experience community and hear Truth, and that you will be inspired to boldly, bravely, follow the calling He has placed on your life.
