Creating through word


Creating through paint


Creating through relationship

Welcome, friends…

I am a pastor, author, and artist who is passionate about living lives of wholeness and meaning. I believe everything belongs — the “ash and the starlight” — and that a tender, strong God holds, loves, and guides us through it all. My purpose and prayer is that anything and everything here might point you to the unshakeable love God has for you…that you will be nourished and empowered in fresh ways to be the unique channel you are of God’s joyful healing and justice in the world.

“May I live boldly, speak confidently, love unconditionally, forgive readily, and trust deeply; shape my life to match my soul…”
