Living through teen years in Kalona, Iowa the third of four children of Herman and Bessie King Yoder, I now live at Greencroft Retirement in Goshen, IN with husband John Nyce with whom I became well acquainted when we were students at Goshen College in the late 1950s. Our family now includes two adult daughters with their spouses and one teenage grandson. They keep us younger in heart.
Celebrating our first anniversary when teachers at Woodstock School in India’s Himalayan foothills, we valued linking with Asia and claiming the cuisine of curries, while I became attracted to rich interfaith Wisdom.

Content here highlights interreligious, scripture, woman-centered, and Indian themes, with thanks to Bryce Yoder for helping to create this Website.
