About the Writer

I’m a former print journalist who splits her time between freelance writing/consulting and my day job as a professional translator of the fine print in workplace benefits. I’m married to the best computer geek in the industry and am the proud mom of three awesome children – a poet, a distance runner and a serious soccer boy. I’m also a Christ follower who seeks to live where truth meets life. Join me on the journey!

PS: The blog name is not random. Egypt is roughly 95 percent desert. Dry, alternately hot  and freezing, empty, inhospitable and deadly but also alluringly beautiful  in the barrenness of rock and shifting sand,  a metaphor perhaps for the world in which we live. How does one survive a place like that?

The prophet wrote:  “A voice cries: In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”(Isaiah 40:3) This blog is my small contribution to that highway project. May it help you find the way to rivers of living water! (John 4:38)
