What does it look like to experience extraordinary truth 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 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.

my story

I grew up as a military kid, moving every 2-4 years and traveling the world. Because of this, I LOVE change, experiencing new cultures, and seeking adventure. Embracing the ordinary does not come easy for me.


When I was 14 years old, God changed my life by moving into the dark corners of my little Pharisaical 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 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 (6) and Bug (3) (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.
