Story
Tagline
A pastor rediscovering ministry.
Introduction
I am an ordained elder in the North Texas Annual Conference currently on sabbatical. I love books, music, sitting around talking with friends, the Bible, theology, teaching, cats, dogs, science fiction and fantasy, my kids and my grandkid!

I lost my husband and best friend in March 2014. I still love and miss him, and I am trying to figure out who I am and what life is about.
Bragging rights
Three awesome kids - a writer, an artist and a musician - and the most amazing granddaughter ever!
