How’d you get connected to Unity and what keeps you involved?
After months trying out a non-denominational church, I decided I wasn’t connecting because I needed a place that welcomed all people. I was invited by singer Maryel Epps and instantly felt like I found a new home. I keep coming to Unity week after week, year after year because of the positive message and people. I am proud to be a part of this spiritual community.
When do you feel a sense of peace and the most fulfilled?
Outside of my home and at Unity, I feel at peace at the beach or riding my bike, yet I feel most fulfilled when I’m traveling to a new place that I am eager to explore. I love the feeling of walking the streets and taking in the culture around me.
What’s your favorite book to recommend to others?
My favorite book to recommend is actually a book that I was introduced to during Unity’s Adventures in Faith program. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is a powerful read with four simple principles that can change your life for the better.
If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would want it to be longer than a week, but my pick would somewhere in Thailand. I would embrace the peaceful energy, delicious food, and beautiful surroundings while indulging in many, many spa services.
What superhero best describes you?
I would have to go with the obvious…Wonder Woman. Not only does she have fabulous hair and accessories, she is also intelligent, strong, honest, and adventurous.
