A little about me . . .
GRATITUDE TO GOD and a desire to devote my life to service is my reason for being. At a time when I was dealing with a life-threatening illness and in the pit of depression I declared "if I have ten more minutes to live, let me glorify God in everything I do."
I’ve had some amazingly wonderful, awe-inspiring experiences, and I’ve also traveled some bumpy roads along the way. I honor everyone’s unique spiritual journey and love the idea we can both learn from each other.
As a young child and later through my college years, I longed for a deeper spiritual understanding of God, and I loved studying the writings of wonderful spiritual teachers. It was the influence of my grandmother, when I was a teenager, that put me on the path of learning about Christian Science.
Along the way I learned how to dig deeper into these teachings to the point of understanding there is a spiritual solution for every human challenge. I learned we are not struggling mortals striving to become spiritual or immortal, but rather spiritual, immortal beings growing out of the mortal experience or dream. Christian Science has taught me practical, spiritual solutions to terminal illness, intensely challenging relationship issues, career direction, parenting challenges, etc. The teachings of Christian Science have also taught me to love my genuine self; the self of God's creating.
To work together to witness God’s glory as it brings healing and comfort to your challenges is my greatest joy. I love this line from a favorite hymn: “Like as a mother, God comforteth his children." I love helping others experience this comforting love and would feel so blessed to have an opportunity to support you in a way that helps you feel that same comfort.

A grateful heart a garden is, where there is always room for every lovely, Godlike grace to come to perfect bloom.
A grateful heart a fortress is, a staunch and rugged tower, where God’s omnipotence, revealed, girds man with mighty power.
A grateful heart a temple is, a shrine so pure and white, where angels of His presence keep calm watch by day or night.
Grant then, dear Father-Mother, God, whatever else befall, this largess of a grateful heart that loves and blesses all.
~ Hymn 3, Christian Science Hymnal
