Speaking + Leading
When I heard a still small voice calling me to use my gifts of connection, empathy, and leadership to be a priest, I balked. Who was I to live into such a call and let my light shine bright in this world? I have a propensity for stirring up trouble: preaching the gospel, questioning authority, lifting up the voice of the voiceless. I knew that God was calling me into a new model of priesthood, one where I could collaborate with others and inspire them to use their gifts, one where the goal was not simply blending into the status quo but truly living out the radical and loving discipleship of Jesus.
I believe that each person is created in God’s image and has magnificent gifts to share with the world. As a priest, I walk with people through the joys and heartaches of life. As a child of a parent who’s died, I talk openly about grief and encourage others to do the same. As a Certified Daring Way Facilitator, I have trained with Brené Brown and incorporate her work on authenticity, vulnerability, and wholeheartedness into preaching, teaching, coaching, and pastoral counseling.
Whether you’re striving to live into your gifts, claim brave leadership for yourself or your board, inspire a group to follow their dreams and live wholeheartedly, or collaborate on a new resource or event, I can’t wait to create together.
I work with individuals and couples who are feeling stuck or wanting to bring intention and wholeheartedness into their lives, vocations, and relationships. We can meet by video for situation-specific or ongoing coaching. My rate is $100/hour; a sliding scale is available. Let’s schedule a consult to discuss your needs.
Group Retreats + Trainings
Everyone yearns to have time away to reset their mind, body, and soul. Retreats are a great opportunity to connect with God, yourself, and others. I have lots of exciting retreats planned for Fall & Winter 2019-2020: Find Your Spark, Daring Discipleship for Young Adults, Wholehearted Women, and Holy Nourished (a collaboration with the Rev. Megan Anderson). Sign up here or be notified when registrations go live.
These online courses are perfect for those who want to go deeper in the work of Brené Brown but have limited time. I have led small groups through 4- or 6-week series on Wholehearted Living and Rising Strong.
Stay tuned for Fall 2019 offerings!
I travel around the country speaking on topics that draw on my background and fit the needs of your organization. I have past and upcoming experience speaking on worship, digital ministry, How2charist, The Daring Way, and more.
