A little about me…
I trained and worked as a social worker until 3 babies came to steal my heart. Two of those babies have now brought home two beautiful daughters in laws. Part of my MORE… who would have thought I would have received such a beautiful gift from my boys.
I married a finance man because I’m not good at that side of things and one of us had to be. He’s also the opposite to me – logical, patient, introverted, and get’s things right.
I became a pastor and a business woman of 3 businesses all at once…. which was a scary, hard and required my soul to stretch. In that space, I became good friends with hurry and hustle and learned that creativity has a speed all of its own…
But sometimes costly unless I keep my soul.
Becoming a pastor and a business woman was part of my MORE, my sacred dreams and sacred spaces. I love the Tailrace Centre and Kids Paradise and all the little ways we send love on its way. I love Tailrace Community Church with all of its rich diversity of colour, different spiritual spaces, and the rugged beauty of different stories told. I love advocating and championing the rights of children. I have loved being part of seeing Bravehearts, Emily’s Voice and the CAP Debt Centre get established in Tasmania. I love supporting women in India.
I’m not good at running slow through life. I struggle with hurry and hustle and taking days off.
I don’t think my heart will ever join the crowd who don’t dream, imagine or pioneer.
Who doesn’t want to reach out to love with courage and imagination?
I don’t want to accept the invitation to live in the grandstand of life and become a spectator watching life happen.
I want MORE.
I want to be focused.
I want to have great big visions and dreams.
I want to live a life full and overflowing with LOVE.
But I’m learning… in all of the MORE my soul needs some keeping and I think you’re here because you know that too.
