I am the woman always on the outside looking in…the square peg being forced into a round hole. I care deeply about things — people and issues — an idealist. I am the daughter of Abba Father (It took me a long time to accept Him as such). I am restored beauty only because of the crazy love of Jesus.

I am a wife to the most amazing man. I am a mom to four beautiful children. I am a pastor trying to shepherd people into an authentic, everlasting relationship with their Father. I am a worshipper, ex-legalist, Jesus Feminist (Sarah Bessey), a yogi, a teacher, an adoption advocate, a blogger, and a music maker.

I love dark chocolate, the Foo Fighters, and romantic stories that inspire me to try new things. I love the ocean and the power it represents of the Creator’s creativeness. I love the quiet. I love to bask in the presence of the Lord — to just sit down and listen. I love to write! I love the sense of community that I have finally now that I’m 35. I crave authenticity.

As far as what I do (not who I am), I am the owner/instructor of 139 Yoga – teaching at Fernview Center for Wellbeing, Solshine Wellness, and the Anderson YMCA, the Co-Founder and President of The 139 Collaborative, the Creative Catalyst at Healthy Growing Churches, the Communications Architect at Healthy Growing Leaders, distributor of Young Living, and consultant for L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL.
