Help! I’m Getting a New Website

It’s been a season of change. New house. New job for my husband. New schools for our kids. New friends. New computer. There’s a list of other things that need to become new—my driver’s license, for instance. We all need a new dentist. The car still needs a new not-rusty door. And I need a new website.

You may not have noticed (you may never have visited my website, for that matter), but the content over there ( has stayed exactly the same for months. It’s not because there’s nothing new to report. I would love to indicate the privilege of inclusion in Christianity Today’s Women to Watch. I’d love to list the posts I wrote about the election for I’d love to point you to the talk on perfection, Down syndrome, and prenatal testing I gave at the Q conference last April.

But I can’t. I don’t know the code for writing websites, and my former web designer stopped doing freelance work last spring.

So here I am, with a static website.

And, thankfully, finally, a plan to change that. Thanks to friends and fellow writers like Ellen Painter Dollar and Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira, I have a new web designer who will offer me a site that I can update all by my very own technophobic self.

But here’s where you come in. What information would you like to see on this website? More visuals? Of what? Should it be organized differently? Does the homepage seem cluttered or helpful or irrelevant or what?

And if you’ve never been to my website before, I’d love for you to take a look. It has links to excerpts from my books and a pretty good compilation of interviews, articles, and so forth if you’re ever looking for my thoughts on a topic. If you’d like to receive monthly newsletters from me via email, you can do so via the website too. So hop on over to, and let me know what you think. Thanks.
