Kassie is a church planting pastor’s wife in the cutest New England town you’ve ever seen. She has a particular fondness for lightning bugs, confetti, fresh bread, and dead authors. When she’s not building up the body of Christ through playing with words, Kassie spends her days herding her happy-go-lucky husband, adventurous baby girl, and socially awkward cat into some semblance of sanity.

For an embarrassingly long season, a driving need to perform flawlessly shaped her ministry philosophy; only recently has she begun recognizing the gospel’s glorious impact on how to serve those around her out of freedom rather than fear.

True to the unwritten code of English majors everywhere, the blog’s name has a double meaning. “Dwell” can mean to live, to stay, to abide (as in a house), or to ponder, to think, to meditate (as on a truth).

The Dwelling Place is therefore a home for thoughts and thinkers. Because we are called to conform our minds to the image of the Son, Kassie’s main goal is to help believers cultivate a biblical worldview. This blog was created to be a safe haven for those who enjoy a thoughtful life in Christ as we journey together toward our deepest and truest Dwelling Place.
