Now that my children are grown, I am ready to serve in a new way, through the skills I have expanded. I love to meet new people and embrace new cultures and skills, serving to help others meet their highest potential for good in the world.
My relationship with God has always been important to me, growing up as a Lutheran pastor's daughter who lost her brother to brain cancer at age 16, when he was only eight. This taught me, at a young age, to appreciate each day and live it to the fullest. Because of this dramatic experience and my subsequent searching, I also learned early on not to fear death, so I know how to really live life fully!
My callings have always been in the area of service. Being a creative person, I love creating fun and exciting ways for people to learn and grow. I am also a compassionate person who is willing to be a sounding board for someone going through a difficult time.
I have always been a hard-worker, an energetic person, and someone who loves collaborating with others and working on a team. I am a dependable and punctual person, who would rather be over-prepared, than under-prepared.
I would enjoy being to help with chapel services and music leadership as well, possibly even sharing a concert or some of my stories from the book I wrote in chapel.
I am excited about this position and know that God will guide you to a great candidate for this important work.
I traveled to over 40 of the 50 United States giving concerts mostly at Lutheran Churches as a harpist and vocalist. I shared stories from my work as a hospice worker to help people not be afraid of the dying process and death, playing and singing songs that were part of the stories I encountered. The stories were experiences I had with patients when music opened the door for them to see loved ones who had gone before them, angels, Jesus, or glimpses of heaven. After the concert, people would tell me they didn't fear death anymore.
During the years of concert ministry my family and I released
