About Me

profilepolaroid1

I am a woman who is able to love much because she has been forgiven much…

There’s no other place I would rather be than at the feet of Jesus. I believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the answer to everything, for everyone, and I long to make sure His gospel is proclaimed for all to hear so they can accept His invitation to a life of wholeness, just as I have received.

I know what it’s like to overcome. I’ve lived a whole lot of life in a short amount of time, including surviving various abuse, being a single mother for 12 years, and battling addiction, chronic pain, and severe depression. My family and I have also traveled the road of adoption loss, years of infertility, and a pregnancy loss. The one thing that has brought me through it all is the relationship I have with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I believe with every fiber of my being that only Jesus can completely save, heal, restore and redeem lives, including my own. I have experienced this truth personally and intimately.

I try to let my passion, that everyone would believe in the true God of the Bible by knowing Him intimately through reading His word, shine through everything I do. My heart is to share with you how the Bible displays the love of Jesus revealed to us and can be used to heal our hurting hearts, to revive our weary souls and to give us shelter in the midst of life’s storms and trials. Jesus alone is the reason for my deep, inner peace and abundant joy. I know He can do the same for you!

I live in Minnesota with my loving husband Asa, our sweet daughter Kayla, and our fur-babies: Daisy, Gertie, and Sebastian. I am currently serving my church, Glory of Christ Fellowship, through leading worship, administration, and other roles. I also serve my sphere of influence by being an advocate and an encourager wherever there is a need. And in my “spare time”, I attend college (with my daughter) full time in order to earn an associates degree in Culinary Arts.

My life verses are Psalm 27 and Luke 7:36-50. Verses 47-50 in Luke read: “Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.” Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”

P.S. I wear plaid boots, striped socks & fun skirts, don lots of pink & attempt to be witty. I quote “The Princess Bride” in regular conversation and will do just about anything to make you laugh and feel loved–for real. I like to consume Chipotle, dark chocolate, potato chips and tea. Oh, and I laugh really loud and smile really big. 😀
