Welcome!

This blog has evolved over the years. What started as merely a way to get my emotions out the door has become this vibrant community of readers who find themselves in the stories I tell.

I named the blog Daring Mercy because when I started writing here, I was at this very dark place and I thought for anyone to extend mercy to me would have to be pretty daring.

Shouldn’t we all be that way? With the right boundaries of course but what a difference our world would look like if we loved the way Jesus loved.
