Storyteller. Speaker. Spiritual Director.
I believe that writing is both mirror and medicine for the human soul. I share words and works to help people heal, grow, and flourish as God’s image-bearer.
A contemplative at heart, I am also a storyteller and spiritual director in the Ignatian tradition. My work intersects where God’s story meets our story. My mission is to use all that God has given me to help others discover and experience God’s love, grace, and mercy through Christ Jesus. My vision is to inspire humans to live as bold, balanced, beautiful creations of God. My folks are humans who may be broken but not bitter, who may be bitter but want to be better, who may be hurting but not hopeless, who may be hopeless but want to be hopeful. Anyone who wants to meet God at the well.
I obtained my Master of Divinity from Wesley Theology Seminary. I also have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Goddard College and a Master of Sacred Theology from Drew University. I received my certificate in spiritual direction from the Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction. I am currently enrolled in their post-graduate program.
I have been wordsmithing and storytelling since my sixth-grade English teacher taught me the power of words. In 2009, I started a blog, Love Speaks Daily. That blog has expanded to the Writing with God podcast, whose purpose is to share God’s love through the power of storytelling. To pay the bills, I have maintained a 20+ year career in communications, training, and administration.
I was born and raised in the church, gave my life to Christ at eight years old, and am still active in the body of Christ as both a disciple and minister of the Gospel. In all that I do, I remain passionately Christian and compassionately interfaith.
