Holding Things Up To The Light
Welcome to my blog, where I tinker with the nuts and bolts (and apparently useless pieces too) of faith, culture, and ordinary life, and hold them up to the light of Christ.
And, practice my writing in front of you.
I typically publish my thoughts (questions, doubts, opinions, observations, self-therapy, flawed but sincere conclusions) once a week, or when life allows. I LOVE it when you share yours back.
A sampling of favorite topics:
- Following A New Path
- 10 Habits of Life Uncurled
- The Glass is Full
- Disneyland Dreams
- Waiting For The Sun To Rise
- Art As A Work Of Life
- When Being Female is Hazardous To Your Health
- Walk With Me
- Be Careful With Your Words, Be Careful With Your Anger

Who am I?
Best answer: I am a lover of Jesus and his unconventional ways.
Traditional Answer: A Theology and Bible Instructor at William Jessup University, an experienced retreat speaker, writer and artist, I take delight in,
- Drawing people deeper into the love of God,
- Equipping them to see the Bible with new eyes,
- Creating a space for genuine community, an open hug of acceptance for those who are on the outside.
A Fuller Theological Seminary graduate with a Master of Arts in Theology, I have four flourishing children–a daughter, two sons and a lovely daughter-in-law–and one brilliant, adorable grandson. I live in Northern California with my husband, Dave, and am often found painting with oils the beauty of this area.
This blog is for you: the beautiful hearts, original thinkers, people who appreciate offbeat humor and who care about what really matters. I hope I will hear from you here.
