Welcome to Ragtag Reveries! “Ragtag” meaning a group of (imperfect) things. “Reveries” meaning thoughts, musings and daydreams. “Reveries” is also a play off the word reverend, since I talk about Jesus a lot.

I have diverse interests and a short attention span. Those factors combined make me unwilling to be like the cool kids of the blogging world, who stick to one niche.

You’re not likely to find instructions on how to be a better person or three steps to simplify your life. I have an instantaneous flinching reaction to the word “should” these days, so I shy away from adding “should-do’s” to others’ life task lists.

I tell stories and ask questions. I share my challenges, and I might ask you to contemplate yours.

I reflect on Jesus, the Bible and faith. A lot.

I write about infertility.

I talk about married life and love with my favorite guy J.

I like food, so there are Tasty Thursday posts dedicated to food-related writing — be it restaurant picks, coffee shops or home cooking.

I enjoy living in the Twin Cities, and I sporadically highlight nifty events and places around town.

I dabble in photography as well. All the images you find here, unless otherwise noted on a very rare occasion, are mine.

To what end: a plea into the universe, “Is anybody out there?” I’m like other typical writers, hoping for an audience to respond “me, too.”

Above all, I’d love it if the words here give others space to breathe, to feel, or to name something in their stories. That somehow, in this imperfect space, hope bubbles up for you and me.

Thank you for visiting! If you’d like more, you can follow me here, or on Facebook, or on Twitter (@emcgrewking).
