My name is MegHan, most call me Meg, Megs, Miss. Meghan or sometimes even Moses.
Grew up in Central California’s answer to a (Swedish) Stars Hollow.
I’m the youngest. 1 of 3. Only girl. I have 2 neices and 2 nephews. I have had the same best friend since I was 4.
Graduated high school. Moved to the beach. (And Disneyland) Studied English and Music. Wrote papers on Sex and the City, said the Indians weren’t people (CONTEXT!) and sang in a choir. Got a passport. Went to China.
Graduated College. Stayed near the beach. Worked at a preschool with kids. A day camp with kids. A church with kids. (this is when I started drinking coffee.)
Kept going to Disneyland. Kept having adventures with some of the best people ever, living in the best apartment ever.
Went through a hellish depression. Went to therapy. A lot. Told my therapist my coach purse made me feel better. (saw him for four years. That’s a lot of coach purses.)
Got involved at my church. Wrote a lot about sermons. And went to South Africa. So I wrote about that as well.
Somewhere along those years I acquired three tattoos.
Then I got hit by a car. (and got another tattoo) I decided I needed to quit my job of 5 years. So I did.
I packed up my stuff.
Went on an adventure to 11 countries. With a group of people who are now family. I was veracious, a BA and a #112. I cooked over stoves, gas fires and coals. I was broken, beaten, Cambodian small eye stricken. My heart was full of stories from all over the world.
(and I got another tattoo)
And I came home. Fell apart
Realized I had shattered into a million pieces.
(Mostly) believed in Jesus
So I kicking and screaming got on a plane.
And spent six months in Spain. Where I not only acquired cooking skills and wine snobbery but where I met Love. Trust. Hope. Truth. VOICE. Where I met Jesus. Where I met Christ. Where I SLAYED giants. Where I acquired more family and a home team. (and then my passport was filled and expired)
So now: I’m moving to Bellingham WA. With a member of my home team. We are going to do the damn thing. And create a home for people to meet Love, to meet Jesus and to meet Christ. (and to read books and drink coffee and all the lovely things)
So that’s me. Meg. Lover of words, Jesus and coffee.
I have favorite places scattered over the world from this coffee shop in Kingsburg, to just about anywhere in Mijas, from Disneyland to Antique Café in Bangkok, from CapeTown, South Africa to the rice fields in Kampong Speu. My favorite places are scattered because the people I hold dear are. They are as close as down the street and as far as across an ocean.
And everywhere in between.
So I will go everywhere in between. With my desire to bring truth, story and home wherever I go. And a desire to bring this crazy love of Christ that I’ve encountered to all the spaces in which I walk.
