Frisking the Ordinary for the Presence of God

Welcome to BeckyRamsey.info. I’m an author, a minister to children, a mom and new grandma, Chief Wrangler of Rosie The Woodchuck Dog and Jack The Unkempt Cat, and caretaker of Traveling Baby Jesus. I search my crazy life for God’s fingerprints, and then I write about them. I also drink coffee, fight piles of dirty laundry and dream of French pastries.

The Holy Éclair: Signs and Wonders from an Accidental Pilgrimage

A church lady and mom of three moves to France and expects nothing will change to her faith. Watch what God does through chocolate and pastry, cider and the flea market, and all kinds of sacred nothings and divine nobodies!

Meet Becky

I’m Becky and I’m so glad you’re here. I hope you’ll join me as we take ordinary life by the shoulders, stand it up gently and give it a good onceover for God’s handiwork, tousling its hair and emptying its pockets. If we give it a care-full frisking, something holy always falls out. I’ll be here each week, blogging about faith and family.

A Christmas Letter from Bethlehem

Written your Christmas letter yet? I've written one this year- the first in at least 20 years or so, but it's not really from me this time around. A month or so ago, my minister friend and colleague Matt asked a few of us to write holiday letters as if we were one of...
