About Me

Hello Everyone, 

Any Christian Quaker visiting the Twin Cities, please contact me.  We may have a guest bed available... or floor space.   Ask Stillwater Meeting for my phone number.

I am Teri.  We live in Saint Paul, Minnesota.  I am a Christian Quaker.  My first understanding of Christianity came from the Presbyterians; my family background is Scottish and Scot-Irish though I was born in California from American parents that moved west from the panhandle region and the deep south.  My older brother became a Christian through the Quakers and then I began attending a Friends Church (Rose Drive) while I was a teen.  Later I lived in Barnesville, Ohio and attended the Stillwater Monthly Meeting, a Conservative Friends Meeting.  Several years have passed since I moved to Minnesota for employment and I still miss Stillwater.  I love the conserving of the unprogrammed worship, thus the word conservative means something outside of what many may first think when they see this label in our name.  I am a member of Stillwater though I live a two day drive away.  Currently I am attending a very small Mennonite church usa that is seeking to have more intentional community throughout the week.


As a young adult, I left the country for Bible training in Canada before working and living in Iran and Afghanistan and then Europe.  I worked with a Christian mission.  When I returned to the USA I went back to university and eventually became a social worker / MSW.  I worked for several years with the poor and mentally ill.  Today I am raising my granddaughter and working just part time as a manager of two apartment buildings.  This gives me the wonderful opportunity to write.  It is a goal of mine to have a novelistic memoir completed and ready to publish one way or another... most likely self-publishing.  I am writing it mainly for my grandchild.


Here in Minnesota there are no Christ-Centered Friends Meetings.  I depend on the internet and the postings of others to feel connected to Christian Quakers / Friends.  If anyone is planning a journey to the frozen north, let me know and I may be able to meet up with you for fellowship. We may be able to provide meals and a place to sleep.


Sincerely, Teri
