I currently serve as the Director of Family Ministries at All Saints Dallas, an evangelical church in the Anglican tradition. I completed my D.Min. in Spiritual Formation and Leadership at Portland Seminary, part of George Fox University focusing on leading congregations to value children's spiritual formation for the sake of the whole church. Previously, I studied Christian Education (BA, '11) and Christian Formation and Ministry (MA, '12) at Wheaton College. Over the past decade, I've directed children's ministries in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
Dissatisfied with curriculum options, I began writing her own weekly lessons in 2013 to use within her own congregation. Within a few years, I was emailing weekly lessons to a handful of other Anglican congregations around the country and decided to launch a website. My current research focuses on the faith formation of children and the mutually transforming relationships honed by intergenerational worship. She enjoys serving on the board for The Children's Spirituality Summit and connecting with practitioners and researchers around the world. I co-edited Children's Ministry and the Spiritual Child (forthcoming, 2023).
I live in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, Texas with my husband, Sam, who works in urban, Christian, classical education and our two young sons, Davy and Jack.
