Hey There. I’m Steph.

Language shapes everything from our personal character to our cultural narratives. But I often still can’t find the word I’m looking for…

If our specific vocabulary has the God-given power of life or death, how are we wielding this force in our lives?  How are we practicing our gift of naming and ordering our lives according to our values? This blog is my quest to learn, and to share my research with you, so that you too can develop your linguistic agency, and think more deeply for yourself.

I always read with a highlighter at the ready, and usually light a flame of some sort before writing. My husband is my beloved and kindred brain, with whom I discusses books and ideas far too late into the night.

I make my bed in northern California along with my family, and my black mustachioed cat.
