Welcome to my site
I’m a constructive theologian interested in how Christian doctrine can speak to the complexities of modern life. Drawing on literary and visual works, I interpret theological ideas together with a range of themes, including images, iconoclasm, beauty, gender, and childhood. My work has been published in two books, Beauty and Image and Presence, as well as a number of scholarly journals. In spring 2020, my third book come out. It’s titled Motherhood: A Confession.
I trained at Harvard, University of Chicago, and Duke before coming to Baylor, where I am currently the Associate Professor of Theology in the Religion Department and an affiliated faculty member of Women’s and Gender Studies, for which I also serve on the advisory board. I live in Waco with my three daughters, two cats, and one husband.
