Glad you stopped by my neck of the prairie.




Little House on the Prairie evokes different things in all of us. For me, it was the first four years of my childhood on the set. But then after the show ended, I was like all of you. A fan watching the reruns night after night!

Then I became a parent and watched the show with my children. The lessons and values on Little House have shaped the way I interact with my kiddos. And it seems that every episode brings tears of laughter or heartache, sometimes both in one forty-minute episode.

After brain surgery in 2015, my life took a sharp turn and I started living differently. The tumor had made me weak, but God was my strength. He is stronger than I ever imagined–has made me braver than I ever thought I could be. Brave enough to share my lifetime of stories with you!

Sometimes I tell people I’m an author, but really I’m a storyteller.

One of my greatest blessings was being cast as Baby Grace, but that doesn’t mean my life has been easy. I’ve experienced anxiety, rejection, and comparison. I’ve grieved through loss and health issues. Through it all, my faith has helped me overcome the challenges of life and given me a greater sense of purpose–sharing my stories with you!

I love telling everyday stories, hoping to communicate God’s great love for the world. My first book A Prairie Devotional is now available in the paperback edition through Amazon, or for signed copies and other prairie-related items visit my prairie shop on Etsy.

My next book, Red Tail Feathers is now available. More everyday stories to encourage and inspire you to find grace in every chapter of life. If we open wide our eyes and look for grace, I believe we will always find it.
