I am a pastor. I am a writer. I am a wife. And I try to be a good friend. I am a fan of building community through social media. And, often it is said that I make folks disciples of twitter. I love cheering for Duke basketball (where I went to seminary), baking, long conversations that aren’t hurried. I currently serve as the Ambassador of Social Advocacy as part of the PR team at Feed The Children.
I love beautiful sentences, great memoirs and the thought of publishing my own book one day.
I’m married to the fabulous, Kevin Hagan who happens to be the President of Feed The Children, a non-profit committed to education, feeding and better health care around the world for children and families which is based in Oklahoma City, OK.

Currently, I divide my time between two political and religious extremes: Washington, DC and Oklahoma City. Such geography makes life interesting for sure!
I’m ordained in the Baptist tradition but not your traditional Baptist, most calling this Baptist group my home.
I am very interested in Interfaith dialogue and non-judgmental conversations among those seeking church outside the walls of church. I have often done weddings, funerals and other commitment ceremonies for those who aren’t a member of a particular congregation, but who want a pastor too. (I love being this kind of pastor!) In my preaching, teaching and writing, I seek to point to the beauty in the traditions in what others who have come before us have treasured and taught us, but bringing new light to the old.
I’m excited about the journey with you, my online community of friends,
