I’m Lee Carter, Christian, author and blogger, and Write What You See is where I like to hang out online.

I’d love you to join me as I write about this messy everyday life walking with Jesus. I do my best to be open and real, and not pretend that I’ve got it all worked out—I haven’t.

I’m not an expert. I’m an ordinary traveller and pilgrim who bears the marks of the journey so far, who longs to remain faithful and reach the final destination.

So I hope you’ll linger a while to walk alongside me and share life, to be enriched, refreshed and encouraged. Perhaps even surprised.

To choose each word and wrangle it into a phrase, a sentence, a paragraph, is work that feeds my soul. So it’s a double joy to use words to give shape and weight and colour to the ordinary struggles and unexpected joys of life with Jesus …
