I’m Alise.

I’m a lot of things, but more than anything else, I’m a woman in progress. I’m finding that out more and more all the time.

I write about supporting my four trans kids, about being a feminist, about being in a second marriage after the first ended due to an affair, about continuing to believe in Jesus even though the Church tries pretty hard to tell me that I don’t really believe because of those other things.

I love knitting because it’s just a series of knots that makes something beautiful. Life is kind of like that. We twist and knot things up, but those stories can create beauty. I hope you’ll join me as I look for that beauty.

  2. Nice name ! And interesting information – I’m also going through changes – interestingly enough !!

  3. Your about a”About” is both profound and beautiful. I don’t think that there could be a finer statement about anyone than what you just wrote. You are a woman who truly knows herself, someone who would make a wonderful friend. If you write your blog the way you wrote your “About” you must be an outstanding writer.

  4. Hi Alise, have you heard of Susan Cottrell and FreedHearts? I think you’d like what she has to say. Check her out on Facebook!
