Where I go to build my story of faith...

Nature

Beauty is All Around

Inspiration comes to me most quickly when two things are present:  nature and solitude.  I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and see some of the most iconic structures, art, and vistas.  Nothing calms the soul or fills me with the love of a caring Father in Heaven more than nature.  That can be in the wind-whipped Scottish Highlands or gazing out my kitchen window at our English bull dog charging at our less-than-impressed cat.  I have to work to hold life's noise and responsibilities at bay long enough to behold and process nature.

History

Know Where You Come From

My father was a history professor with a passion for European History.  I taught US History in high school.  But I was always most partial to the history that was only a generation or two back, and played out by my family members.  I wanted to learn about the people who's choices effect me to this day.  Whatever you prefer, the study of history is a study in one's self.  What meaning can be found in knowing your people, your place, your past?  Pretty much all of it.  Here I am trying to decide if this shutter in Edinburgh Castle was truly this color back-in-the-day.  Fabulous!

Discussion

Let’s Figure it Out Together

Since I was a child, I've loved listening in on discussions of things that matter.  Relationships, religion, politics, health, philosophy, and a good dose of humor helps all of it stick in the memory.  It's not by chance that my living room is arranged like a comfy (smoke-free) campfire circle.  Gathering with friends or family to discuss the day, the election, or the Sunday School lesson is my idea of heaven on earth.  Why not learn through other's experiences and results?  These conversations spark my enthusiasm and sway my heart.
