I’ve always felt like the woman on the outside looking in…the square peg 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 yogini, 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 of the Creator it represents. I love the quiet. I love to bask in the presence of the Lord, to sit down and listen. I love to write! I love the sense of community that I have finally now that I’m in my 30s. I crave authenticity.

I am the Founder and CEO of The 139 Collective. I teach yoga (many varieties) at Solshine Wellness, the Anderson YMCA, and 10Star Fitness. I teach private classes through my own yoga company, 139 Yoga. I am the Creative Catalyst at Healthy Growing Churches and the Communications Architect at Healthy Growing Leaders. I believe in taking care of myself and others so I work as a distributor for Young Living and as a consultant for L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL.
