Gretchen O’Donnell is an island girl living on the prairies of southwestern Minnesota, with her husband, two youngest children, and two argumentative cats. For many years Gretchen did freelance writing for her local newspaper and had a weekly faith-based newspaper column, The Disheveled Theologian. This blog is an edited version of those columns.

Gretchen loves telling stories of her ordinary life to help people see the theological truths in their own everyday lives.
