Thanks for stopping by.
I serve as one of the pastors at First Congregational Church of Western Springs, Illinois, a Chicago-area congregation affiliated with the United Church of Christ. I love everything about congregational ministry, and am deeply grateful for my primary vocation. I also love to write, and have published work in a number of genres - hymns, pageants, essays, blog posts, and a couple of books. I teach spiritual writing workshops and have led retreats for a number of churches. I am also a yoga instructor and teach vinyasa slow flow classes at church. I am presently working toward a Doctor of Ministry degree at Western Theological Seminary in a cohort called Holy Presence: Eugene Peterson and the Pastoral Imagination. My husband Ben and I have two children. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about my ministry or partnering with me for your event.
