About Doris Sparks

Education: BS Ed Indiana University M Div. Trinity Lutheran Seminary

Comment to those looking at my sermons: If they help you...thank God, not me.

Family: Married 36 years with 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My spouse comes to both services if I preach twice because he likes to hear how the sermons change from the beginning of the week to the end.

Best advice given to me about preaching: "I don’t want the best sermon you can preach, but the best sermon you can preach this week." Hank Langkneckt prefessor of Proclamation, Trinity Lutheran Seminary

Books that have had an impact: Practicing the Presence by Brother Lawrence Resurrection by N T Wright Thomas Merton’s writings (have read them all) Evvelyn Underhill

Hobbies: Reading, cross stitch, crocheting prayer shawls

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Every week I am surprised at how fast Sunday appears!

Something funny that happened while preaching: Every children’s sermon is a risk....

What I want on my tombstone: She walked with God and shared the love of Christ with all.
