Three things that are sure to make me smile are … Dr. Seuss’ books, kitty cats, and an Irish accent!
My favorite thing about Saint Mary-of-the-Woods is …the beauty, serenity and sacredness of the land during every season of the year.
When I am not at work or involved in ministry, you are most likely to find me …with my nose in a book!
On weekends I love to …relax with- of course- a good book!.. Preferably a mystery, historical novel or even with PBS Masterpiece Mysteries on TV
I am passionate about …teaching, especially classical languages and Hebrew Scripture
My good friend says I’m … a “flitter.” He says, “You go from a job or a ministry where you stay a relatively short time, give 150%, and then move on to the next challenge.”
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of God is …Amazement!
