I struggled making friends and good grades. I didn’t have any type of influence and I couldn’t “perform” the way I was taught growing up. So two months into the school year, I was depressed, anxious, and didn’t know who I was without accomplishments or success.
It was the perfect recipe for a real encounter with God.
Growing up in church, I always knew the Bible stories, but reading through the Bible for the first time my freshman year, I saw a lot of similarities between my life and and the children of Israel. They were trapped under Pharaoh’s rule. I was trapped by the opinions of others, idols of success, and the desire to be perfect.
He chose me in spite of my brokenness, pursued me when I didn’t think I was worthy, and accepted me when I couldn’t even accept myself. So in October of 2012, I made the decision to dedicate my life to Christ, fully surrender myself to Him, and I haven’t looked back since.
I poured my heart out while listening to Chris Tomlin and William McDowell and slowly over time, I started writing the lessons God was teaching me too. At one point, I thought those lessons were worth sharing.
So when I graduated college, I launched a public blog and dove head first into the world of content creation. Little did I know that one small step would lead to published books, seminary school, women’s events and now me talking to you right now.
Find yourself lonely and desire to find a community of like-minded women who can help you grow and hold you accountable
I don’t know how you found me or this site but…
After you’ve hung here a while, it is my deepest prayer that you will come to know just how much you matter to God. I hope you will believe that God finds you significant, you belong to Him, and He loves you more than you could ever imagine.
And if that’s not enough, I pray you will begin to be bold in who He says you are and experience a joy and freedom that cannot be explained. That’s why my personal mission is to teach and empower the Christian woman to conquer fear and self-doubt so that she can confidently believe who God has called her to be.
