About me: after following a call to ordained ministry, I served for seven years as a vocational deacon while I wrestled with what exactly God was asking me to do. Early in 2020 I was discerned for priesthood and was ordained priest on June 22.
I am 52, a Mum of 5, married to Kevin, and have worked professionally as a singing teacher and conductor.
I have completed my Licentiate in Theology with Honours with EIDTS, distance-style, which means I could read theology in the bath – excellent!
To relax I like gardening, and patchwork, and I have been known to do the odd sudoku!
Life is interesting these days, as ever, with various health and disability issues among my family.
Since moving back to Christchurch where I grew up, we have been establishing a garden and growing the family. We still have three kids at home – my oldest son is married and living in Wellington, and my daughter is married too and lives only ten minutes away.
