With Mary I can say: My soul proclaims the greatness of my God. I rejoice in the Holy One who has raised me up. I live in God’s favor.
Yes my soul rejoices this Jubilee year in gratitude for God’s faithful Love which has birthed me to who I am today through my family, the Dominican family, friends, and those who have touched my life through my various ministries.
Never did I dream that a spirited little girl from Suttons Bay, MI would have such a blessed life as a vowed Dominican. A life that has taken me to the East side of Michigan, Rural Northern Michigan, Inner City of Detroit Michigan and Chicago Illinois, St. Louis Missouri, Cleveland Ohio, Gusau, Nigeria and now back to Grand Rapids. A life that has provided me opportunities to share my gifts with ethnically, culturally, economically, and spiritually diverse people as teacher, administrator, spiritual director, formation director of the Congregation, co-novice director for the Dominican Congregations in the United States, a member of the Congregational leadership team, and adult faith formator.
All these years of prayer, study, communal living, and service has allowed me to give and receive God’s Love. This Love confirmed me in my belief that we are one in the Body of Christ.
