While ministry takes much of my time and attention, I have other passions in life!

Cooking and baking are spiritual disciplines for me: they require focus but also immersion in the moment and in the senses! I love to entertain and share my creations!

I know I’m too stressed out when I haven’t had time to do photography. Nature photography especially takes me out of myself and helps me see the world differently.

My dogs are a source of sanity to me, most especially during covid times. I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (Siggy) and a “Swissy-Poo” – a mix of standard poodle and Swiss Mountain dog (ViVi) They are sweet and fun and endlessly entertaining. Tending to them means tending to myself as I have to get home periodically and they help me remember to spend significant time outside every day.
