About

I am a listener for God. I first heard God on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee where I grew up, shown above. I continue to hear God in the silence, in the beauty of creation and in the voices of those who serve God in the communities I am appointed in. I am a United Methodist pastor, I am also a registered nurse. I believe that God invites us to live a holy and whole life through Jesus Christ. My call to lead is informed and unfolds through contemplative practices based on the scripture where Jesus instructed the disciples to put out into the deep. (Luke 5:4) The term “thin place” is a Celtic expression that describes the time or place where the veil between heaven and earth is thin. I expect to find thin places every day.

Attending to God’s Presence in silence expands my experience and understanding of the vastness of God’s love and mercy.  I believe that quiet prayer will remind us of not only who God is, but who we are, and when we listen, we learn how God wants us to be part of the recovery of creation. The answers to our world’s needs are within and around us when we listen with intention. Simple prayer brings us to offer ourselves for the well being of others.

Family life, for me, at this time, centers around four sons, one daughter in love, one daughter in love to-be and an adorable grandson. We are crazy about our sweet aussie, Ruby and Washington Capitals hockey. DSC07049

  1. Wow, we sound like sisters. I yearn for “thin places”, my focus word is “joy”, I am a Lutheran clergywoman. I’ll be married 31 years in July, and I’m a nurse. Bizarre. I hope we can meet face to face some day!

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog, Christianquietude.wordpress.com, and for inviting me to visit your blog. I’ve loved reading your prayers and your thoughts about how God reaches out to us and works in our lives. Blessings.
