I became a contributing editor at Dmergent this fall and one of my articles has been featured in the “Best of 2011” series. In my article “The Intersection of Cesarean Sections and the Cross of Crucifixion” I share both the […]
As a child, I loved Christmas. As a young adult, I grew to love Advent, this season of darkness preparing for the light that will begin in four weeks (can’t you see me jumping for joy inside?) As a pastor, I began to feel cheated of this season, both of Advent and Christmas.
Here’s a Top Ten Tuesday list of things going on in my life, which, you’ll understand as you read through, is why it’s being posted on Wednesday!
1. Work, work, work. I am working both as a preschool teacher in our church’s Mother’s Day Out program and as a substitute teacher in the school district. […]

Last week I watched the Nightline special on PBS “Faith and Doubt at Ground Zero.” As the people interviewed shared their views on God and faith (all had lost loved ones on 9/11), I started to reflect back–not on where I was on 9/11 as I have […]
So, I’ve been busy. So busy that I missed last week’s Top Ten Tuesday post and didn’t get this week’s done in time. So here’s a silly Top “Five” Tuesday/Wednesday post on what I’ve been up to:
1. Research, Finding, Calling: researching more about Autism, trying to find a new doctor for AJ and making […]

My son has Autism-Spectrum Disorder. He also has a speech delay.
We had a wonderful appointment today at the OU Child Study Center–I highly, highly recommend them. It took us 10 months from when we requested the appointment until today, but it was worth it.
We have good support and plans for moving […]
Tuesday, August 23rd is a date that our family has been waiting for. Back in October, we finally convinced our son’s doctor to contact the OU Child Study Center and refer us to them for an autism evaluation. The OU Child Study Center offers a team approach to evaluating and assessing autism-spectrum disorders (ASD). There […]
My first article for [D]mergent was posted today–check it out! http://dmergent.org/2011/08/18/online-chaplaincy/ I listed [D]mergent a couple of weeks ago as one of my top ten ministry sites. There are great thought-provoking articles and reflections posted there and I’m glad to contribute.
Sort of a personal update for a Top Ten List, but here’s what’s going on in my life.
This is Tobi, our new puppy. She is about 8 months old (birthday 12/20) and is a Husky/Boxer mix. She is full of energy and an aggressive licker. She is also my new […]
