Scottie is a newbie on the board. She is a retired Associate Professor of Christian Formation and Ministry at Wheaton College, (IL). The spiritual formation of children is her passion. She has researched and written about this subject including Listening to Children on the Spiritual Journey, Perspectives on Children's Spiritual Formation, and Children Matter. She works with churches and Christian schools to help them explore the difference between education and formation and how that should look in different contexts. Other areas of interest are “authentic” experiential learning, the implications of the church being “the family of God,” and intergenerational worship and learning experiences.
Her interests align well with the mission of KidZ at Heart. She is honored to be part of the board.
Scottie loves the outdoors, sports, and traveling. She has three adult children, eight grandchildren, and one great-grandchild and tries to visit them as much as possible.
