About Us

On pilgrimage outside Pamplona, Spain.

Hi. My name’s Lance. I teach at different institutions around San Antonio, Texas, to include the University of the Incarnate Word, Our Lady of the Lake University, and Northwest Vista College. In addition to having taught at the University of Texas-San Antonio, I’ve taught as a high school English teacher and private tutor and even served in the Marine Corps as an infantryman.

I have a B.A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies from the University of the Incarnate Word and an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Texas-San Antonio. Recently I was awarded a Merit Scholarship to study at the Jesuit School of Theology–Berkeley. My research interests include environmental ethics and aesthetics, phenomenology, philosophy of animals, Asian and comparative philosophies, philosophy in literature, and religion and ecology. I am also a lover of Franciscan spirituality. Much of my time is spent with my family. I can be reached via email, at, lance.gracy@gmail.com or on Twitter, @lhgracy. You can also follow my podcast, The Pilgrim Star Podcast (@pilgrimstarpod) and check out my Academia page, lgracy.academia.edu/

Hi. My name’s Elizabeth. I’m a wife, mother, and writer. Along with caring for the needs of my family, I enjoy working at the intersection of children’s catechesis and Carmelite spirituality. I also enjoy playing tennis!

My formal education includes a B.S. in Speech Pathology from Stephen F. Austin State University and a Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) from Texas A&M University. I plan on studying Spirituality at the Avila Institute, if all goes as expected. I can be reached via email at eapeltier09@outlook.com.
