Ronni grew up in Texas, where she participated in religious activities from a variety of Christian denominations, including a summer of clown evangelism in Brazil with Teen Missions International. After graduating from Abilene Christian University with a degree in digital media, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the entertainment industry.

In L.A., Ronni got married, had three kids, and blogged about life as a wife and homeschooling mom in the world of Hollywood. In 2021, Ronni and her family moved from California to rural Southern Utah, where she began producing a monthly children’s magazine for Tuttle Twins.

After experiencing both an unexpected divorce and unexpected pregnancy at age 42, Ronni created the critical thinking website www.thinkknowgrow.com and writes here on Patheos on topics ranging from motherhood and relationships to patterns in nature from a contemplative faith perspective.
