Hey y’all.  My name is Kerri Pelz.  I grew up in Hendersonville and have lived in the Asheville area most of my life.  The majority of my adult life I have worked as “Mom” to my three children – now ages 20,16 and 13.  I’ve been a birth and postpartum doula for over fifteen years and in the the fall I will start my training as an End-of-Life doula.

I’m so happy to be working in the Respite program as Michael’s assistant.  I started cooking meals for the community a couple years ago and was excited when the opportunity arose to be of greater service to Respite and Haywood Street.

As Michael has told me on several occasions, the Respite program is sometimes hard to describe. The theologian Beldon Lane writes that “Divine love is incessantly restless until it turns all woundedness into health, all deformities into beauty and all embarrassment into laughter.”  I’m grateful to be part of a community that invites and welcomes that Divine “restless love” into our midst every day.
