I am an ordained clergy person and a member of the Mountain Sky Conference of The United Methodist Church. I serve the The Upper Room as the Director of Prayer and Worship Life and Dean of The Upper Room Chapel. I received my Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, Tennessee. I grew up in Oklahoma and enjoy photography, drawing cartoons, music, liturgy, and writing. I have the honor of sharing life with my family in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m passionate about dogs, particularly Scotties. Jack, a very wise Scottish Terrier, passed away in the fall of 2018. Jack lives on in his blog and in his book of blessings, Jack’s Book of Blessings: Celtic Poems by a Scottie Dog.
I’ve written three books — Christ Beside Me, Christ Within Me: Celtic Blessings – print, EPub, Kindle, or Audio Book (Upper Room, 2016). The Uncluttered Heart – print or EPub, or Kindle (Upper Room, 2009). Child of the Light – print or EPub, or Kindle (Upper Room, 2006).
