Here is a little background information you may be interested to know:

After serving in a Catholic parish as a Pastoral Associate, Director of Religious Education and RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), I have been expanding my ministry work to include a greater presence on social media.  Between speaking, blogging, and podcasting, I am hoping my service will encourage those who are spiritual seekers and those who want to grow in their faith. 

I strive for clarity in all that I do so that it will be understandable for the beginner, yet have enough depth to be enjoyed by those further along on their journey.

You may be interested to know that I am a happy member (and past Moderator/Formation Director) of the Saint Catherine of Siena Lay Dominican Pro-Chapter which I helped found in 2005. I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Religious Studies from Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan, in 2000 and a Master of Arts in Theology from Augustine Institute in 2016.

I love to write and am grateful for the years I was able to write for (now out of print) The Catholic Times as a biweekly columnist.  Currently I write homilies and commentaries for faithCATHOLIC.

I have been married since 1982 and have three beautiful, adult children and two little grandchildren.

If you would like to invite me to speak at your church or organization, let me know!  As a Lay Dominican, I love meeting and speaking to groups!

Since we are former homeschoolers and have an adult son with a disability and two adopted daughters (from Korea and Colombia), I love to talk about our experiences with them as well!


God bless,
Janet
