The Bridge

A card from my favorite Etsy shop, eileengraphics. It features the Newport Pell Bridge, Santa’s sleigh, a full moon, and Narragansett Bay.

I so loved curating the Advent Blog for 2020. And I am hoping you enjoyed following this year. “Irrational Season” really captured all of what 2020 brought us. Thank you to all of the 27 different voices who shared their poetry, music, thoughts, vignettes, and prayers this year. We are so very blessed that you said yes to the “irrational season.” There will be one more post on New Year’s Day before the blog hibernates until Lent.

The bridge’s picture with the full moon and Santa’s sleigh was my Christmas
card for 2020. When I bought the card from my favorite Etsy Shop, eileengraphics, I was hoping to get to the other side of 2020 and build bridges between people with the stories of Advent.  We all just seemed a little far apart.  I certainly felt more connected. 

I hope that the blog moved you, may have even brought you to tears, and most of all inspired you during this very unusual Advent season.

As our church is still entirely virtual, I would like to invite you to a Saturday morning workshop with Nina Frost on January 9th. The 2-hour long workshop titled “Listening for the Light” will be an excellent way to journey into 2021 through journaling. The workshop is free to all participants.

You can sign-up at the following site:

Thank you to all of our followers,

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.
