Retired Presbyterian Lay Pastor/Spiritual Director/Writer
As a recently retired Lay Pastor, I am currently enjoying time caring for my grandchildren.
A life-long learner and student of theology, I have several certificates in ministry, including one
in spiritual direction; as well as, a master’s degree in Theology. I view my current situation as
another “classroom” where I am being fed and shaped to do the work to which God is calling me.
Writing has always been a dream of mine, and I believe this is a season to begin pursuing that
calling. I recently joined “Hope*Writers,” and will have a poem and article published in
Celtic Nations Magazine, December 2020 addition. My deepest desire for any work that I do is to give
glory to God and to be a voice of hope and light in the world.
