Elena is mama to 2, a biological son and adopted daughter, and wife to a PC(USA) pastor. She’s an immigrant (born in the Great White North), seminarian, and former expat, having lived and worked in Liberia, West Africa, from 2009-2014. Elena is a YL oiler (Yl.pe/elenadel), coffee snob, ice cream enthusiast, idealist, empath, loud laugher, Enneagram 1w2, and chronic oversharer. She’s “hippie-ish” and tries to live low-waste & eco friendly.
Elena writes a lot about motherhood, being in seminary, walking away from diet culture, ethical adoption, all things coffee, and how she’s walking out her calling as part of the resurrection people. She is actively pursuing publication of her first book, Fire and Water.
