I am a wife and a mom, a sister, friend, and daughter. I am a novice gardener, a loving cook, a perpetual student, an eager bookworm and an avid photographer. I am also a minister. Well almost.
After eight years of seminary, and three years of CPE, internships, externships, and youth ministry gigs, I sit, perched on the brink of ordained ministry, ready to dive into full-time, full hearted ministry.
I am on the path to ordination in the United Church of Christ, currently seeking a call to parish ministry. I have served as a minister in several churches in the greater Seattle Area, and I am currently working with my home congregation, University Congregational UCC, to revamp revitalize and reimagine Young Adult Ministry.
I have recently returned to graduate school (once again) to pursue a post-master’s certificate in pastoral counseling. I love running and cycling, reading and writing, cooking and eating, swing dancing and vienna waltzing. My husband and I recently launched our daughters to college and are newly empty-nesters in North Bend.
My last blog (A Grown-Up Gap Year) fizzled out, but I had fun, even so. Here we go again. Thank God for wide margins of grace.
