Welcome to UU@Home! I am a life-long Unitarian Universalist, Religious Educator, mother of two, spouse, wisdom-seeker and a debate-loving, philosophy enthusiast. I love being outside and enjoy camping, digging in the dirt and searching for bits of wisdom in unexpected places. I am pretty sure that I am learning more from my two kids than I could ever teach them.
After I created UU@Home as a monthly column in the UU Church of Flint newsletter, I decided that it would be even more fun to share this idea with UUs at home everywhere! Somewhere along the way, reflective blogging joined my vision and has become somewhat of a spiritual practice.  My opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of other UUs, and may not even reflect my own views in the future- but why not share the journey?

Thanks for reading and welcome home!

Contact me: become a guest blogger, share UU@Home content in your church’s newsletter, and let me know what you think of UUatHome.com!

NatalieMy name is Natalie and I am currently the Religious Educator at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis. I am working on my fifth year as a religious educator and sometimes feel like I am the Jack of all trades. I am married and
we used to home school (unschool) my soon to be teenage daughter, who is now entering back into the school system. We used to be a certified foster-care family, I was a Girl Scout leader, lead a home school theater troop, participated in Up With People, taught preschool, worked with youth in the arts, certified in Travel and Tourism, degrees in both Early Childhood Education as well as Human development, cook tester for Manifest Vegan’s new cookbook….whew, on a daily basis (like most adults I am sure) I have to remind myself to breathe.

I reflect often about my journey as a Unitarian Universalist Religious Educator as well as a UU parent and UU family. Being UU, you soon learn that your beliefs are your own and may not match up directly with other UU’s. However, that is the wonderful thing about it. Learning from each other…isn’t that what it is all about.
