about me

Heidi Ennis lives in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington State where you can often find her staring at rivers or mountains or trees.

Hi. I’m Heidi.

In 2010 I left my career as a middle school guidance counselor to pursue my passion of writing. Within a year of that change, I was homeschooling our children and our lives changed dramatically. That is a book in and of itself. Kind of a cool story about a marriage and family redeemed and refreshed- off of the fast track and onto the slow dance of enjoying every day and watching our kids learn and grow.

I was running one direction, and God stopped me completely and turned me back the other way.

It is a good story.

I love to write, although I do not claim to be any good at it. I guess I consider myself a storyteller rather than a writer. All I know is that I have a story playing in my head all day every day and the only thing I must do is write it down. If only to get it out of my head. Seems simple . . . but not really.

Other things I love? My dogs, sunshine, coffee. I love books- my collection is overflowing my house- and maps- also, all over my house. And I love lavender, homemade soap, and breakfast sandwiches.

The short list of things I hate- burnt eggs on my breakfast sandwich, blackberry vines in my flower beds, all day rain (if you’re from WA, you know what this is), and meatloaf.

I pray every day for joy and peace for those I love. And also, that all I say and do is pleasing in His sight.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14
