A bit about me...

Movement is my learning language. Stillness is my listening language. Often I feel most stilled when my body is in motion. That’s where I do my best thinking and God gets my full attention. It’s why I call myself a Kinesthetic Christian. Movement is my native language; no words necessary.

Though Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God,” I think stopping is overrated. It can be hard to get going again! A little momentum keeps the joints working and the engine tuned, not to mention helps us to be prepared to respond whenever the call comes.

When I’m not here, I’m on the field or in the classroom teaching and preaching about healthy sport and the prevention of injuries and advocating for sports opportunities for all children and youth to give them a healthy start in life.

In my spare time I enjoy: one husband, two dogs, three daughters, exercising, writing, fiction and sitting on the porch, not necessarily in that order.
