I live in Damascus, Oregon and have been married to Russell for 25 years. We have three grown children: Michael, Elizabeth, and Christopher, and one daughter, Jennifer, who died at age 2 ½. I attended church with my family for more than 22 years, but quit after years of working through a painful, controlling church culture.
I enjoy spending time with my family, painting landscapes, composing music, and studying difficult Bible passages. I love critical thinking and challenging people’s understanding on Biblical passages regarding God’s design for men and women’s interaction and partnership in this world.
I’m currently attending college full-time.
