What does hope look like in the grind of the ordinary?
If you find the grind of the ordinary weighing down your soul, I want to empower you with Truth to walk intimately with Christ- even when the burden feels hard and heavy. This is hope.
This space is for the weary, overwhelmed, and doubt-filled souls who still long to know Jesus deeply-for those who want to be confident that it is truly well with your soul.
I grew up going to church, but I was never really sure who God is and where I stood with him. I saw him as a giant dictator in the sky who was always looking at me in disgust. I distinctly remember the first doubt entering my heart at the age of 4. When my mom picked me up from Sunday School I asked her, "Is God mean?"
When I was 14 years old, God changed my life by moving into the dark corners of my fearful, doubting heart. He revealed to me that He loved me not because of what I do, but because of what Jesus did for me. Since then, I’ve been learning to walk in grace instead of Law.
I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Journalism. I’ve served on staff with the college ministry of Cru for over 15 years, discipling women, taking the gospel to the lost, and training
students in ministry.
I met my husband, Jeff in 2007 when we were placed on the same Cru staff team. We married in 2009. We are complete opposites, which makes some things difficult and some things easy, but there is no one else with whom I'd rather do life.
Today, I continue to serve on staff with Cru, alongside my husband, but most of my days are spent Mommying my two loves, Cupcake and Bug (Don't worry about my children, those are NOT their real names).
I am a questioner, a doubter, and a skeptic, but also a recovering good girl. I've found my faith dangling by a thread and by the immeasurable grace of God, I continue to walk with Him, in His ever-faithful arms. I long to glorify Christ, above all, while being real and honest.
I love deep conversations over warm cups of coffee (or tea), music, reading middle grade fiction, New York City, the UK, and I'm admittedly a bit of a computer game nerd and a lot of a Broadway fangirl.
