I am an ordained minister, mother, social justice advocate, writer, strategist, fervent basketball fan and budding soccer enthusiast. I love good movies, reading and buying books (yes, the paper kind) and going to the beach. I grew up a few miles outside of New York City and consider myself a city girl. I’m also a bit of a coffee snob, although I try to keep this in check, and I think it’s important to have a piece of chocolate every day, preferably dark chocolate because of it’s nutritional value (it has fiber and antioxidants I’m told). I can be sarcastic (did I mention I grew up in New York?) and I have a sense of humor. It’s hereditary in my family. I sometimes take the NCAA’s March Madness too seriously–another family trait. Most of all, I am a committed Christian who loves God and God’s people.
I started this blog as a part of my doctoral dissertation project. I have continued it as a way to leave my issues, cares and concerns about life and living at a virtual altar. My hope is that people who read what I post will find strength and encouragement for life’s journey with a little laughter, an occasional tear and lots of joy sprinkled along the way.
