Our Community Spiritual Leader

Reverend Bonnie felt the call to ministry when she was in High School back in the 70’s and then she attended Grinnell College where she double majored in religion and psychology graduating with a BA (1980). Reverend Bonnie then became a certified in American Sign Language interpreter and has been serving the deaf community since 1987.

Rev Bonnie found her home in Religious Science in 2000 when she walked into the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living. She moved to Las Cruces in 2006 as she started her last year at the Holmes Institute with the goal of becoming a Community Spiritual Leader in some capacity through the Centers for Spiritual Living. She received her MA in Consciousness Studies from the Holmes Institute in 2007. Presently she is an ordained Religious Science minister and Practitioner, and in the spring of 2013 began serving at the CSL in the Heart of Las Cruces, first as Interim, and then as the Permanent Community Spiritual Leader in November 2014.

Rev. Bonnie believes that uplifting our consciousness uplifts and changes our lives. You can meet with her for personal spiritual counseling, pastoral care, or to gain a deeper understanding of these teachings by making an appointment. Rev. Bonnie and the Center are also available to serve you in celebrating life events such as weddings, & memorials, etc. In addition, she is also fluent in American Sign Language. Rev. Bonnie can be reached by calling or texting 575-635-8081, emailing lavlight@gmail.com, or leaving her a message at the Center.
