About Me


being a mom and a Pastor in the Bay Area


I am Tia, 33 years old or young (as you want), married to Philipp and studied orthodox and Lutheran theology. Don't be frightened now, I wont make you pray all day (just sometimes maybe... :), just kidding). I finished my studies and my Ph.D. about East German sermons during the time of 1989-90.
If I am not at home, I am either talking to people (that's my job), in theater, at the movies, at concerts or out hiking, biking, walking... whatever there is to do. Well, actually this used to be my life, since November 2012 my life's center is my daughter Antonia and now I am mostly enjoying her!!!! And in April 2014 our son Theodor was born.
So now we are one of these families that are fully managed and planned - until things happen to be different. If you can stand spontaneous and slightly crazy and outgoing people we are happy to meet you.

We just moved to Berkeley, so feel free to discover the Bay Area together with us. If you have a car we all fit in even better :)


Life is the best that has ever happened to me!!!!!!!!! Well, maybe my daughter and my son are even better!!!!!!!!!
