I found a home in New Thought in 1996 and have been a devoted and ardent student ever since. I was ordained in 1987 in another spiritual tradition and am currently working towards a New Thought Interfaith minister credential. I am the mother of two delightful children and a lover of this adventure we call Life. I'm delighted to be able to practice and grow with all of you.

I’ve always had a passion for playing with children of all ages, and I’m delighted to share my enthusiasm with this community. In addition to working regularly with preschoolers, I’ve also been facilitating teambuilding and leadership development programs with youth and adults since 2008. My unique teaching style is strongly influenced by 12½ years of training in Aikido. I earned my black belt in 2010, and taught Aikido and general life skills to youth from 2007-2015.

As a teacher, I strive to create dynamic and engaging environments, in order to maximize the learning potential for students while they are having fun. Just as an acorn has yet to reveal itself as a mighty oak tree, children contain infinite potential, manifesting as individual and unique expressions of the Divine. I fully embrace UIL’s YFM Vision Statement: “We nurture spiritual growth in a positive environment for all people, while exploring our unlimited potential.” It’s an honor and a privilege to learn and grow with this radiant community.

Having been raised in Unity, I have been a student of Unity all my life.  Some of my best memories are of my days as a student within each of the youth programs and am so excited to now be able to share those experiences and life lessons with the Unikids.  Our focus will be on community, learning and practicing the Unity principles and of course, lots and lots of fun!

“Uniteens”, are our blessed Middle & Jr. High School youth. It takes a team of people to keep up with them! As one of four volunteer Uniteen sponsors, I bring 20 years in Unity serving with Sunday School, Y.O.U. and in “adult” church. What I’ve learned is that Uniteens are my favorite people to play, learn, share and grow with. Our group focus is on fun, understanding ourselves, fun, practicing Unity’s basic principals in our day-to-day lives, being in service to something bigger, and especially having fun!

John Previti

I am the youngest of five siblings raised in the suburban Washington DC area by a strong Unity mother, and I was christened in the Unity Church. Though we had limited financial resources on a single income, our mother made sure we knew we were loved completely and unconditionally, and saw to it that we knew how to love each other. Many times when it seemed we were in an untenable situation, we witnessed God’s Abundance and Love seeing us through. This instilled me with absolute confidence that Love shines in me and through me in all situations.

I made my way to the northwest in my late teens and have been here since, doing my best to raise five children and sharing in Spirit wherever I can. I’m honored to have the privilege of being a member of Unity in Lynnwood, and contributing to its growth in any way I can. Thank you for allowing me this cherished opportunity. 

Co-Lead Sponsor, YOU

Growing up going to a Unity church in Illinois, I've been in Unity since before I can remember! Upon moving to the Seattle area when I was able to attend the Y.O.U. group at UIL for the duration of my teenage years, I deeply appreciate the love and kindness I experienced while attending. I thoroughly enjoy working with Unity In Lynnwood, creating and enriching with the staff and community through technology and film. I'm always up for and driven by the challenges my work might present. Let me know if you have any ideas that can help add to the Unity experience. I'd love to hear them.

I graduated from Shoreline Community College in 2011 with an associates degree in Arts & Sciences along with a certificate in Digital Filmmaking Technology.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve this thriving community as we grow together in Unity.

I just love to read mystery stories and what greater mystery is there than the mind and thought?

If I'm not playing with the dog or working in the yard, you'll find me in the gift shop!
