I pursued ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church for 14 years. Things looked good from the outside but inside I was drowning. I was so miserable but I didn't know how to get out. I was in too deep. I found the courage to quit my job as an associate pastor and removed myself from the ordination process. Suddenly, I could breathe again.
I met my Army chaplain husband in seminary. We're currently stationed in Korea with our two boys.
I self-published a novel a few years ago. I'm currently working on a spiritual memoir. But mostly, I'm trying to tell stories that help people feel less alone. Maybe I'm the same kind of weird as you.
