Welcome to UU@Home! I am a life-long Unitarian Universalist, Religious Educator, parent, and a debate-loving, philosophy enthusiast.
I created UU@Home as a monthly column in a church newsletter, then 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?

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!

Hello! I am a non-binary biracial Filipino, a religious educator, and a PreK teacher. One of the many things I love about Unitarian Universalism is the natural way my tai chi practice, my anti-colonialism and racial justice work, and my passion for teaching through story align with UU principles. Unitarian Universalism encourages me to live my values out loud.

I’m grateful for this platform and the opportunity to share my opinions and sources of inspiration. Church, connection, and community have taken on new meanings, necessarily changing the way Unitarian Universalists access faith. Let’s lean in and explore Unitarian Universalism at home together!
