Welcome

cropped-rodewald-2_for-web-use.jpgHi, I’m Erin.

I play with words.

That’s not to say I take words lightly. I’m actually very serious about words (except the humorous ones). But please don’t mistake serious for complicated.

While I write on some weighty topics — see the category pull-down button to your right — I keep my words simple and straightforward. I do this because I want to help people understand the critical issues of our day and feel empowered to contribute to the conversation in a meaningful and informed way.

I view the world through the lens of a Christian, conservative woman, and I write about policy that way too. On this site, you will find my blog, which includes a collection of my published articles, as well as regular posts about policy and politics, links to helpful resources, and assorted odds and ends useful for cocktail parties, PTA meetings, or Jeopardy.

If you like what you read, please subscribe to the blog or follow me on Twitter at @EDRodewald. Then invite a friend!

On the primary sources page, you will find links to useful websites, fellow bloggers, published reports, studies, and legislation. The intent: to provide you with the source and not just the sound bite on important information.

Finally, if you are looking for a wordsmith—someone to help write, research or edit that next big project—have a look at my writing services page. I would welcome the opportunity to share my expertise.
