about the teacher

I am a C.S. Lewis Institute Fellow with a Master of Arts degree in Cultural Apologetics from Houston Christian University. My authorship includes contributing and editing for the apologetics quarterly An Unexpected Journal; the online magazine Cultivating, and Managing Editor for Cultivating Artist in Residence. Facebook site Literary Life Book of the Month feature reviews on classical and recent books with a focus on the enduring beauty and truth found in literature and the arts. After traveling to Oxford for the C.S. Lewis Summer Institute, I was asked to write a monthly travel blog for Clarendon Press. I wrote a historic cookbook for The Mystery of History and Bright Ideas Press, as well as contributed to Wild Things and Castles in the Sky-A Guide to Choosing the Best Books for Children and The Lost Tales of Galahad through Square Halo Press.

Teaching Philosophy

My academic passion focuses on the significance and reintegration of the arts and humanities with theology and the Christian imagination. We find rich insights in the writings of the church fathers and in ancient and medieval books, and I believe these beautiful texts are an essential element to education at every level. Primary sources are key to understanding our Christian perspective and purpose. I believe that a love of learning is fostered by good literature and shared adventure. The world is embedded with the goodness, beauty, and Truth of God and we are witnesses to it each day if we choose to truly see.

Statement of Faith

I believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. I believe in the eternally existing, holy omniscient, Triune God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and in the redemptive work of Christ through his death and resurrection. I affirm the Nicene and the Apostle's Creeds.
