Thank you for your curiosity about my writing! I consider myself a “newbie” since it took me years to finally admit I was a writer, and even longer to realize I had a gift for public speaking.
This blog and other publications, contain a spattering of my writing over the years. Take a moment to read through some blogs. You will find short simple blogs to deeper theological ones. If you think my writing fits your publication, please email me. I’d love to chat and learn how I can contribute! My hope is to grow this space, and add to the list below.

Speaking & Preaching
My primary speaking experience is in preaching but I welcome other opportunities. I have been the guest speaker at retreats, an MC for events, and participated in multiple workshops. If you are interested in me speaking at your event, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please find a few samples of my speaking below.
The systems we create to find peace, hope, joy, and love are temporary, flawed, and are mere imitations of the real thing. Jesus is our permanent, perfect, and personal savior who assumed our humanity fully so that we can participate in the divine life of God and find help in our time of need. This teaching, on the second Sunday of Christmas looks at what it means to lay aside our systems and lean into the Savior.
In Matthew 2:1-12 we will see how different people received the news of God’s coming to earth as an indication of how they waited when God was silent. They serve as an example that when we wait in the strength of our own power, God’s coming is receive with hostility. And when we wait in the pride of our knowledge, we receive it with indifference and apathy. But when we wait in the hope of God’s promises, we receive the news of God’s coming with worship.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7
How can we be the Church in the midst of suffering?
- We admit our suffering
- We share our suffering
- And we comfort each other in suffering
