Until May of 2014 my email address was alaskapreacher; now it's revgramma. I have retired.
After more than twenty years amongst the Native people of Southeast Alaska's temperate rainforest, I'm on an adventure in mostly hot and dry Arizona. I'm a minister. I'm a grandma. And I'm a writer.
Ministers by profession seldom really retire. They just find more opportunities for ministry and more freedom to respond to that which strikes their fancy. So besides over a thousand-some sermons to my name, what I really like best is writing little inspirational nuggets, like I did for a number of years in a popular column for a little newspaper in Alaska. I enjoy the challenge of getting the point across without being "preachy".
I’m someone who looks at the world and sees God in the ordinary, everyday people and things around me, and in the surprising blessings that come my way with such perfect timing. Some people call it coincidence or serendipity. I call it "That God Thing".
