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).

  1. A friend posted a link to unclutteredheart.org and I have so enjoyed it every morning this week. I find your words very deep, and very comforting. Glad to know about this blog, too. Happy Advent & best wishes to you in your endeavors. 🙂

  2. Aha! I found you! I stumbled on your post via The Holy Disorder of the Dancing Monks FB page. You might like to know that I have spent the past week reading/praying/contemplating an issue of Weavings/2000 dedicated to humility. I’m not sure you were part of the staff that far back. I mourn the loss of Weavings print version. BUT, I’m glad I found your blog. Love your gentle, insightful, thought-full writing. Please don’t retire, she said selfishly. ~ Carol

    1. Wonderful, Carol. So nice to meet you! I was not directly working with Weavings at that time, but have been in proximity for a number of years. Thank you for sharing how you are using it. Many blessings and gratitude. – Beth
