"Dancing Barefoot in the Wind" is a collection of the poet's work over several years.  Ordinary experiences and simple objects inspire this clear writing and take the reader along a poetic path of beauty, joy, pain, sorrow, struggle and, ultimately, triumph. 

Please join Bonnie, August 31, at 9:30 in Chapel Hall for a gathering and sharing session to learn the process of creating poetry. Everyone is welcome.

Central Lakes - MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers)


A new chapter of Mothers of Preschoolers, or MOPS, is starting September 2014 at Lutheran Church of the Cross.

MOPS connects mothers of young children, infants to kindergartners, to a community of women, in our own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood.


We will meet from 9-11:15 a.m. the first and third Mondays of the month, September through May, enjoying a delicious brunch, engaging speakers, crafts and other activities while our young children are cared for by caring volunteers in our free MOPPETS childcare program.


We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.
