I am a teacher and scholar of religious studies and a theologian in the Anglican tradition. I am currently Associate Lecturer of Theology at Wheaton College. I am also a deacon in the diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others. You can read more about my transition to Wheaton College here.
I specialize in the study of lived religion, which goes beyond the traditional focus on texts and historical figures to include the everyday practices and experiences of individuals and their communities. Fortress Press published my first book in May 2018: Quivering Families: The Quiverfull Movement and Evangelical Theology of the Family.
I earned a Ph.D. in theology from the University of Dayton, as well as a M.Div. from Truett Seminary at Baylor University, and a B.A. in biblical studies from Criswell College. I have taught religious studies and theology for many years in university, high school, and local church settings. Also, I am married to Ron and we have three children.
