Meet Bonnie DeMartini

Bonnie DeMartini 2015What leadership role(s) do you hold here?

I am serving as Abundant Life’s Licensed Unity Teacher. In this role, I assist Reverend Carol in a variety of project plans and classes, specifically, class curriculum, calendar planning, small group facilitation and prayer chaplaincy training. In my role, I am also a Prayer Chaplain and group leader. I work to envision and manifest the highest good of our community.

What's your favorite thing about Abundant Life Spiritual Center?

Seeing the transformation of individuals as they live the truth of their being and lead amazing lives I have been in a position to witness so many who ‘light up’ when they engage in our community. To know that we come together to share, to encourage and to be love in this world fills me up.

What is one thing you're looking forward to this year?

I am feeling energized by the excitement over what we can create and manifest as a community. In my personal life, it is similar. My husband and I are in early stages of retirement and we are also creating and manifesting what the next stage of our lives will be as we spend time together traveling and envisioning.

How do you like to spend your free time?

What’s free time? I am a person who plans for busyness. I like writing, reading, creating and travel. In the past year or so, I have learned that a blank canvas is very exciting to me so when someone shares an idea or an idea comes to me, I love spending time seeing where it can go. Abundant Life Spiritual Center and my ministry training provides many opportunities to look at a ‘blank canvas’.

What's your favorite book?

My current favorite book is Jim Rosemergy’s, A Closer Walk With God. I began reading the book and then listening to Rev. Carol’s message series on this topic while I was teaching a class on Monday mornings based on the book. I became steeped in the teachings and practices. There has been a shift in my prayer life as I my walk with God is how I live my life. I am touched that a small group formed around the study of this book and we continue to meet several years later. I am blessed by the impact this book is having on my life and the lives of others.

If you could invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner for an evening, who would you choose and why?

My adult children would be invited. Perhaps I will do this. As I reach a stage of life where there is more wisdom than knowledge, more strength than weakness and more faith than worry it would be wonderful to sit with ease and grace to share life lessons in a deep and meaningful way. 

When was the last time you laughed really hard?

Almost daily! I am married to a man who sees humor in the moments of life.  We are silly and funny together and it makes life a joy.

Anything else you want to share?

What a pleasure and honor it is to serve the community of Abundant Life Spiritual Center as we grow and thrive and manifest goodness.
