Through the giving and receiving of grace in my own story, I have experienced Love breathing life into my faint heart, Faith growing and Hope redeemed. My story is no longer mine to keep but has been reframed to offer to others what I have received.

If you follow me, you will read about the glorious mess I am, you will read about my family, my friends and the ministries that have helped me along the Journey back to the Home of my Heart.

I believe that hope, healing and new life can happen in the midst of exploring a story… any story. Because every story matters to God.

“Only when we have come in touch with our own life experiences and have learned to listen to our inner cravings for liberation and new life can we realize that Jesus did not just speak, but that he reached out to us in our most personal needs.  The Gospel doesn’t just contain ideas worth remembering.  It is a message responding to our individual condition.  The Church is not an institution forcing us to follow its rules.  It is a community of people inviting us to still our hunger and thirst at its tables.  Doctrines are not alien formulations which we must adhere to but the documentation of the most profound human experiences which, transcending time and place, are handed over from generation to generation as a light in our darkness.”
