For more than fifty years, Katie Funk Wiebe has given voice to her thoughts while sitting alone at her typewriter. She has been particularly adept at opening up her life to others and "wrapping words" around her questions. In doing so, she invites her readers not only to listen but to recognize themselves in her stories. This collection of essays provides a thoughtful reflection on the significance of Katie's writing and her contribution to the life of the church.
