What do you love about The Episcopal Church?
 
I love the inclusiveness of the Episcopal Church. I love how we are encouraged to ask questions, to delve deeply into the mysteries of faith, and to be open to new ideas and interpretations. I also love the tradition and pageantry of the liturgy, and I love the continuity of the church calendar. 
 
What do you think All Saints’/Todos los Santos provides our Northwest Arkansas community, and Bentonville in particular?
 
All Saints’/Todos los Santos provides a welcoming Community of Christ in NWA, for anyone and everyone, no matter the circumstances of their lives.
 
What are you most excited about at All Saints’/Todos los Santos?
 
I am excited to watch our congregation and ministries take shape and grow. I am excited about the potential that our church family has to help shape the community at large in the future.
 
What’s something interesting about you that most people wouldn’t know just by seeing you on Sunday morning?
 
I grew up on an Arabian horse farm near Batesville, Arkansas, and on some occasions after a snow when the road to our house was impassable, but the school bus was running a limited route, my sister and I would ride horses out to meet the bus on the highway.
