As a Two Year Academy for Spiritual Formation participant, Teresa is committed to finding ways to stay in love with God. One of the ways she connects most deeply with God is hiking and spending time in nature “unplugged.Teresa also enjoys reading fiction, cooking, and admiring her daughter’s latest art work and writing.
