stories of loving our neighbors, discernment, & other hard things


A Midwestern native, Erin F. Wasinger lives and learns to love in Lansing, Mich. Her book — The Year of Small Things: Radical Faith for the Rest of Us (Brazos) — coauthored by Sarah Arthur, released in January 2017. She’s passionate about stories that point out the nuance in people and ideas, and she’s always asking questions and changing her mind. That’s part of discernment, she says.

An avid reader and lay theologian, Erin also volunteers on the teaching team at Sycamore Creek Church and coordinates & creates content for the SC’s kids’ ministry. She freelances, does IGtweets, and creates podcasts, too.

A member of Redbud Writers Guild, she’s been part of a few of her fellow Buds’ work, too.

Highlight of 2017 so far (besides the book): interviewing Dorothy Day’s granddaughter for Englewood Review of Books.

In short, living the dream.

Co-conspirators on this adventure are Erin’s husband, Dave; their three girls, and their dog, Mr. Big.

He’s very excited to be part of this.
