Hey, there!

Thanks a bunch for stopping by. As you can see, my site has been pared down quite a bit because there’s an awful lot going on these days!

 

Work

I’m working on a LOT of projects with Dan King at Fistbump Media, which is not only challenging but also loads of fun. I maintain a handful of private clients, mostly friends who need a boost with a project (and often a kick in the pants).

I enjoy the process of identifying needs and creating manageable action steps to meet goals. I also have a growing network of resources I can connect my clients with, and I’m constantly learning new tricks and meeting cool people.

Are YOU “flustrated” with your website or project?

The things that exasperate you energize me! Contact me and let’s see how I can help.

 

Ministry

Discipleship and teaching continues to be my passion. I listen to hours of sermons and polemic discussions, and I’m deeply concerned about the state of the Church. If you find yourself rolling through the beautiful mountains of southwest Virginia, let’s have coffee and chat about it.

Radiant Roanoke continues to grow and we’re planning our fourth annual women’s conference!

This is an interdenominational conference that draws women from churches all across the region. Our fantastic steering committee amazes me each year with their creativity and love for Jesus. Please join us for our April 14th event!

 

Life

We’ve had lots of changes at Casa de Stilwell lately. We recently moved from the cozy subdivision we called home for 29 years. I know you’re probably thinking, “WHAT? You lived in the same house for 29 years? Who DOES THAT anymore?”

Yes, I know. We were blessed beyond measure with so many friends and neighbors there, but life is all about change and it was time for us to make a move. We bought our retirement home a few years early and are in the process of updating and upgrading. Which, to be perfectly honest, is driving me a little batty.

The hammering and banging started on May 1 as we prepared for a big event in our family:

Our Scott married sweet Mika in October of 2017 and we had the ceremony here at the new house. And YES, a move and a renovation and a wedding WAS a lot to manage at one time, especially considering that I had 2 bathrooms and 1 bedroom that didn’t get finished until the Tuesday before the wedding!

We enjoyed a brief respite from the construction, then started it back soon after the wedding with a targeted completion date of Spring 2018.

So I’m sometimes a little scattered and tattered from all the constant noise and mess, but it seems I clearly have control issues the Lord is working to refine. I appreciate your patience and prayers for my sanity because I need all the help I can get!

 

Seven random things I might tell you

  1. I’m an associate hospital chaplain. Nothing gets me out of the dumps quicker than visiting and praying with sick people.
  2. I love country music, especially high lonesome voices like Vince Gill, Allison Krauss and Emmylou Harris.
  3. I’ve been to Israel five times and love it almost as much as I love Virginia.
  4. My dad is a bi-vocational Baptist minister. He’s also my hero.
  5. My favorite (non-biblical) person in history: Robert E. Lee
  6. If I could choose my last supper it would be nachos.
  7. My favorite chant: LETS GO … HOKIES!

 

Your blessing for reading this far:

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust Him
so you may abound with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
~Romans 15:13
