Hide and Seek

I spent the Thanksgiving holiday with my family in the country.  I was asked by the children to play Hide and Seek. I was then asked if I wanted to be a Hider or a Seeker.  I chose the Hider role and I hid so well, I wasn’t found.   They gave up looking and surrendered.

While I played the game with my family and all of the children, unlike most of the adults, it occurred to me that I’ve been playing “Hider & Seeker” with God all my life.   I was always looking for a church home.  One where I could be myself and where God would honor the gifts I bring to the table.  I have finally surrendered to his loving care when I came to Marble Collegiate Church.  My church home.  

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. 
Psalms 32:8

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
