About.

I am an author, speaker, and blogger. I encourage women to find their identity in Christ Jesus and empower them to live a life the shows it to the world.

While I have historically focused on reaching young adults, I find that in this forum, I write about what is relevant and inspiring to me, thus allowing for a broader audience. The goal is to post once a week (usually toward the later part, though not always). However, I do ask for grace as I am the mom of two young girls so there are weeks where time just gets away from me 🙂

Here is what you can expect from me and this blog:

Southern-taught honesty, Holy Spirit-taught grace, and a whole lotta Jesus in everything (and occasional humor, though it’s not always intentional and usually sarcastic).

I am inviting you to share this life with me and I hope you will enjoy my perspective of the journey. I invite you to subscribe to both my email list and the blog. You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Ok, so a little about me personally…

isn’t he handsome y’all? Love him!!!

In the fall of 2005, my roommates and I decided to host a college bible study out of our apartment.  From that small group, three couples were formed and later married, including my husband, Kyle, and I  (you know, every college Bible study’s real underlying goal and dream outcome).

our “old man” Snoopy

After six years of marriage we have two beautiful (and crazy) little girls (Samara and Aliyah, pictured below) and one
pathetic but adorable hound dog (Snoopy).

It was also just over five years ago that I began to rediscover my love for words and writing.  Balancing family, work, and volunteering with Student ministry, writing often took a back burner.  But now, my first book has been published and I’m looking forward to what all will come from that.

goofy smiles but both looking at the camera–that’s a win

I love being a mom and a wife and those will always be my priorities.  I plan to continue writing as God directs me to do so and to be available for further speaking opportunities as they arise.

I don’t just want to be any writer, but one who is able to take the wisdom that God grants me and translate it into written word for others to read and apply.  I write about what I see, what I feel.  I write about my life, family, dreams, and beliefs.   I am determined to succeed and, perhaps, change the world–even if it’s just a little.
