I am Kaitlin Sara Ho Givens, also known as “Kata.” I am a Chinese-American campus minister focusing in planting new movements, empowering  leaders, and raising up purposefully multiethnic, reconciling communities that reflect the heart of God. I am pursuing a Masters of Divinity at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in English from Boston University. I speak Spanish and French and Minion proficiently, with Greek and Hebrew up next.

My personal interests involve hospitality with conversation that lingers long after the meal is done, communities that embody reconciliation, spiritual formation that shapes us in the the day-to-day, fiction that takes me to new worlds, climbing mountains (currently 19 into the 48 White Mountain 4000fters!!), education reform, living simply and generously, riding my bike everywhere, my niece Harper, Dominican dominos played under large matas, spades (with the “blind nil” option), and lifting/boxing/sprinting so that I can eat all the over-the-top decadent dessert creations my husband Andrew (aka Captain-America-meets-Mary-Berry) makes with freedom and a clear conscience.

Why “Reepicheep’s Tales”? Well, I feel a particularly strong bond to a fictional Talking Mouse. Read more about that here.
