On Christmas Eve 2007, I was outwardly whole, but felt despairingly empty. My lifelong search to find spiritual sustenance was again at the forefront of my mind and heart. I scanned the Christmas Eve service newspaper ads, and lo and behold, I saw an ad for New Thought Ministries of Oregon (now NTCSL). I attended the service and listened to Rev. David’s words. My heart lifted, and I knew that I’d finally found home. I’ve been coming to NTCSL ever since.

The growth process has been steady, albeit a little slow at times when ego takes the reins. But always, there is the voice that there is more to life than ego, and I’m drawn to It, to know the peace and love that I find within, and doing my best to live in Wholeness in the world.

Being in service is important to me, both in and outside of NTCSL. In the giving, I receive so much more. At NTCSL, from singing in the choir, serving in the Finance Committee, washing tablecloths, bringing food for potlucks, participating in the auction and bazaar.. yes I serve, but the return in love and connection is incredible. In my professional life, I am a “registered nurse turned geek”. I collaborate with the clinical staff and IT staff on the electronic medical record system, fostering team work and cooperative decision making every day.

I have two grown sons, and I live with my two mini-dachshunds, Peanut and Nina. I enjoy kayaking on flat water in warm weather. I can fly a mean kite at the beach (dive bomb, watch out!), and enjoy walking and generally getting out in nature. I like to knit. My sewing machine is currently collecting dust but has produced several quilts in the past.

Life is Good.

It's important to me that our community both "reaches in" and "reaches out"--deepening our direct spiritual experience of Oneness so that connection with and service to the wider world come easily
