I'm Mary B. In case you're new to these parts, I am a writer, speaker, and singer based in the biggest of all the apples. I take big, cerebral ideas about life and faith, and I explore whether or not they work in the trenches of everyday life. My favorite topics are Jesus, the church, community, singleness, and women's issues. Hobbies include watching people take solo-selfies, glaring at cars that encroach onto crosswalks, and having existential crises.
