This weekend we had our two oldest granddaughters (ages 5 & 6) staying with us. The oldest drew a picture of all of us taking a nature walk. In the end I was tired after making ice cream with the girls and decided to stay home. So she…

Buen Camino

I am me, a person with love for others, a passion to be creative, and a desire to be a cheerleader for others. I’m a wife, a mommy, and a grandma (you can call me by my grandma name “Lady M”). I’m on a search to grow and connect more fully with God. I didn’t grow up particularly church, married a man who had, and we raised our three daughters in the church. I found a place to belong in the church and somehow discerned a call to go to seminary. I received a Masters of Arts and Religious Communication (MARC). I went on to become ordained as a deacon in the United Methodist Church and served in media ministry and Christian education. As clergy I found that I didn’t have a place to belong in the church so I left the United Methodist Church in 2010. I still believe and I’m still on a quest to draw closer to God. And I’m going to walk the Camino de Santiago.


  1. Doesn’t make you a bad pilgrim at all. Just a tired person who knew there was another adult available to pick up the slack if she needed a rest!

  2. Oh, Michelle,

    Fortunately, the memory of a 5 or 6 year old is shorter than yours will be. I’m still loving that you keep in touch this way AND that you are planning another pilgrimage! Joy, and blessings,

    Barb (Julian)
