I love the public part of ministry...preaching, being with people, creating and sustaining community. But there is a big part of me that loves those quiet, solitary hours of ministry as well. This part of me was cultivated in the slanted eaves behind my bedroom as a little girl, where I would hide out in my "clubhouse" writing plays and poems.

The writing part of ministry is where I can most tap the creative depths and where the words on the paper or computer screen give form to my thoughts.

In this section you will find examples of my sermons, prayers, small group ministry sessions, newsletter articles and other pieces of writing. In so many ways, ministry has made my dream of becoming a writer come true!
