Bio

Lee’s writing has appeared in a number of online and print publications, including the Christian Century, Fidelia’s Sisters, and Practicing Families. Her most recent book, More Than Enough: Living Abundantly in a Culture of Excess, is a call for faithful and responsible consumerism. She is the co-author, along with Bromleigh McCleneghan, of Hopes and Fears: Everyday Theology for New Parents and Other Tired, Anxious People, which offers reflections on  faith the tasks of parenting.

An ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Lee is a graduate of Albion College and of the Divinity School at the University of Chicago, and currently serves as Chief of Staff in the Office of the General Minister and President. Previously, she was Senior Minister at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Greensboro, North Carolina and associate minister in Falls Church, Virginia. She has been active on the boards of a number of organizations, including the Christian Board of Publication, the North Carolina Council of Churches, the Young Clergy Women Project, and the Board of Trustees of the Disciples the Disciples Divinity House at the University of Chicago.

A few of the things she loves, in no particular order: her husband Rob, their two kids, the church, running, the Back to the Future trilogy, and just about any kind of ice cream (as long as it doesn’t include fruit, which doesn’t belong in dessert). She lived in the South long enough to appreciate the word “y’all” and the fact that she could drive to the beach in time for lunch. Now back in the Midwest where she grew up, she’s mostly slipped back to “you guys” and is learning that home is wherever your people are. She just wishes Indianapolis was a little closer to the ocean.
