Joyful Meanderings of a Hopeful Pastor


Joyful Meanderings

What a gift it is to be a hope-filled traveler on this journey called "life!" I am the mother of four, wife, daughter, sister, friend, pastor and a fearfully and wonderfully made child of God! I have a passion for the work of communities and the local church. I find joy in each and every aspect of this call to ministry! I certainly have been blessed to have met some incredible humans along the way -- all who are serving God's church in amazing and exciting ways and who continue to feed my soul and inform my own ministry! My cup "overfloweth"! Thank you for visiting my blog! Blessings!

The Ordinary

You and I can be like Flashlights…

Sometimes my children..Wait, let me rephrase that.. Often times, my children remind me about our calling in the world... It has also become apparent to me, that I cannot always protect them  from the things that happen in the world.... Continue Reading →
