A Note on the Author:

of a "Lay Person's Guide to Spirituality". As a lay person I add a
unique perspective to everyday spirituality for ordinary people.

My Educational training includes a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor
of Education Degree from the University of Saskatchewan,
Saskatoon. In many ways my vocation has prepared me for my
career as a writer. I taught Senior High School English for thirty-five
years. My involvement in Parish work included catechetical
instructions over the same period of time.
Spiritual training included a three-year theological program (the
equivalent of a deaconate program) which included Lay-Presiding
and Homiletics. As a writer, I have published poems, short stories
and some 1200 articles in more than fifteen newspapers over the
past twenty-three years, reaching over 65,000 readers.

"I have always been an avid reader of your column Pause for
Reflection. It is a first and a must when I receive my Canora Courier
here in Calgary. "A Time to Weep" [article] was a great comfort to
me and I'm sure to anyone who read it. I read it over time and time

a funeral message this afternoon."
