Since Sara is the Left-Brained Free One, it’s only natural that Monica is the Right-Brained Still One, right? And it’s not just convenient, it’s true. She’s the graphic-y designer-y one who adores all things fonts, colors and textures. But she’s also got a business-mind that keeps that creativity from turning into procrastination (though it’s taken years and years of practice.)
Monica is an introverted recovering self-loather who is learning to appreciate who God created her to be. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she moved to Atlanta after graduating from Washington State University (#GoCougs). She would have moved back to Washington State if she hadn’t met a Southern boy who swept her off her feet.
Monica, her husband and two (amazing) children recently moved back to Atlanta and she lives just 15 minutes from a Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack now. (After 8 years in the mountains where Target was 1.5 hours away, this is LYFE.) She enjoys coffee, reading, coffee, writing, coffee and spending quality time with her family while drinking coffee. She does not enjoy meal planning, cooking, or domestic activities but begrudgingly participates in them because LIFE.
Monica speaks when God makes her and writes very, very erratically at Elevate Ideas. She typically posts random things on Twitter and Instagram. She’s been published in Today’s Christian Woman magazine and written at (in)courage.me. Her most popular blog series include 31 Days of Being and Metamorphosis: Embracing a Life of Becoming (which is also the book she’s sorta/kinda/sometimes/always working on).
