A woman with a heart for all God’s children…

        my dad told me, “You were a pastor at the age of three.”

                True. But it took a long path to get there.

I’ve served as a pastor since 2007.

        From 2007-2012 at Calvary Lutheran, Spencer, NC

                From 2012-present at Mt. Hermon, Concord, NC

Attended The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia 2003-2007

        graduated with a M. Div. degree in 2007,

                served as an intern at Redeemer Lutheran, Portland OR: 2005-2006

Taught art in public schools (K-12) and universities for 20 years between 1975-2003;

        was a watercolorist and adult educator during 10 of those years,

                served on Art Councils, organized juried shows, won awards.

Personally, I’ve been married twice; first to my childhood sweetheart.

We had two girls who are now accomplished adults.

                Our wonderful marriage was cut short when Jim died of cancer

My second marriage is delightful and strong; we met in church

        and married when I graduated from seminary.

                Bob and I started ministry together in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina

I love to move and travel! What a delight to meet new people!

        I’ve lived in eight states! Explored ministry in India and Honduras.

                God has brought joy into my heart in every place.

In 1990 I prayed, “God make me a master weaver!”

        I was completing a M. Ed with a minor in weaving.

                As I wrote my first sermon in 2003 I thought…

“God is answering that prayer!”

        Taking God’s story, the assembly’s story, my story:

                day by day, God is having me weave tapestries.

The treads are gathered together

        and God’s story connects to God’s children

                Yes dad, I guess I’m a master weaver, a storyteller, a pastor!
