I am a recorded Quaker minister and a lawyer, originally from Anchorage and currently living in Atlanta. I share an apartment with my partner Troy and our two orange cats. I am a member of Freedom Friends Church and a sojourning member of Atlanta Friends Meeting. In addition to reading and writing, I enjoy a good laugh, running, yoga, knitting, and singing.

I tell Hannah about a dream I had the night before about preaching for women. I dreamed that when I looked out at the congregation, the chairs were mostly empty, but there were women sitting in chairs near the back.

My New Year’s resolution for 2016 was to embrace the new, and there were a lot of new things this year! The first few months were my last semester at Candler School of Theology. I devoted most of that time to working on my thesis, “Dangerous Women’s Bodies: Stories of How Women Ministers are Threatening and Threatened.”
It's a little intimidating to start a new blog. When I began the blog A Passionate and Determined Quest for Adequacy back in 2008, I was in the middle of a life-changing call to ministry and I needed a place to talk about it. In that first year, I wrote in a flurry, sharing all of the new and exciting things happening in my life and ministry.
