Awe and wonder have powerfully affected me in so many ways. They add a lens through which I
understand my faith more deeply and they inspire my love of science, especially astronomy. I believe
that awe is a vital dimension of life, but one that is sadly lacking in many people’s experience. Without
awe, life becomes flat; without wonder, people become hollow.
My goal is to help people
stop long enough to discover experiences that elicit awe and wonder in them, and use their experiences
to enrich and deepen everyday life. On this website, you will find resources I have found meaningful as
well as some materials I have written.
