Lord, you formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me. - Psalm 139

God has led me in ways that I could never dream of doing or being. Praise God!

It has been a long journey toward my life with the Grand Rapids Dominicans. I had belonged to a congregation for 28 years in the Los Angeles area, taught there in an elementary school for 17 years, worked with resettling persons from Vietnam and Central America, taught in the local seminary, worked with catechists of Developmentally Disabled
Persons for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and taught in local universities.

After getting my doctorate in education I applied and accepted a position as Associate Professor in the education department of Aquinas College. This was the first contact I had with the Dominicans of Grand Rapids. I was offered the opportunity to live with the
Sisters while I worked at the college.

This was the beginning of a wonderful experience with the Sisters whom I have grown to love. To serve with them has been a privilege.
