I'm Rebecca Trotter, a mom, writer, thinker, talker, teacher, Christian and odd duck. I write about God's upside down kingdom, spirituality and enjoying life when it's hard.
I'm particularly good at saying ridiculous, life ruining prayers and writing run on sentences. But I should warn you, I'm not really safe. I swear. I complain. I make lots of funnies. (Well, I think they're funny!) But most of all, I make people say, "I never thought of it that way before."
So if you think you have all the answers and already know how it all works, you should make your escape now. I'll just ruin everything for you. But if you want to know more about God and life and His upside down kingdom and why it's all grace and all so hard and how it all works, come explore. I have thoughts to share.

The world is such a dark place these days, sometimes it's hard to know what to do. One of the things Rebecca has been doing this summer is leaving messages of hope, encouragement and wisdom around her metro area located in the frozen tundras of the American upper Midwest. The response has been very encouraging and positive - people tell me these messages have made a difference to them and they look for new ones while out and about.
There are plans to expand this project later this summer so others can join in. In the meantime keep your eyes open - The Upside Down World may be closer than you think!
What people are saying . . .
Let me tell you, more than once after reading your blog, I am left with this feeling of “holy crap, she is right…”, and I am sure that I am not the only one who thinks like that…
