Some of My Work
Words from Others
"That may have been the most profound and generous ministering I have heard from any pulpit in my many years of church going. Truly, your deep gift of honest sharing and rare ability to bring us all in, gradually, and with an embrace that held all life stories so as to impress the importance of each, while gracefully sharing your own vulnerable journey, was nothing short of astonishing. You have a powerful future ahead to minister deeply and offer that intersection of courage and compassion to a world that needs it so very much."
~ Ruth P.
"I was suddenly reminded of just how perfectly you personified the relationship between Becky and me.
The ceremony was perfect! "
~ Adam S.
"Thank you so much for officiating at my brother Tom’s memorial service this past weekend. Your words were very comforting to me personally. Many people told me how your words touched them, as well. The service was beautiful. I value the advice you gave on questions I had regarding the service and the time you spent listening to me talk about my brother."
