I was born in Ohio in Steel country. When I was 11 we moved to the Heartland. Iowa was my home until I was 18 and I left for two years to go to college in Eugene, Oregon. When I turned 20 I moved back to Iowa where I lived until I once again moved to the San Francisco Bay Area at age 24 I lived there through my 30's. It was there that I fell back in love with writing and my knowledge for writing flourished as I attended Arizona State University.
It was also there that I found my love, husband, and best friend.
We married in 2016.
I became a licensed Minister in 2021 and pastored 'The Bridge of Faith' for 14 months.
God then called us to Houston, Texas...which is now where we call home.
It's here that I was awarded yet an other opportunity.
I have become a writing coach. I get to take my joy of all things writing, reading , journaling and music and put it all in a beautiful opportunity to pour in to others.
Leading Bible Study groups and connecting with others is a beautiful bonus that we get to do this with our home church...Lifepoint Church in Pearland.
Poetry was my escape in my teen years.
Journals were my best friends.
It was the place I could write what I saw, what I felt and stories that I dreamed. It was my connecting point to how I spoke to God and how Holy Spirit would speak to me.
By the time I was 25 I had boxes of dreams and stories.
Finally, at the age of 37 my fiancé encouraged me to dust them off and dream again.
I enrolled at Arizona State University and had the amazing opportunity to travel to Oxford, England for a semester. It was while there the door was open to me to write full time and become what I believe God created me to be. A writer for people to find a piece of themselves in.
In 2017 I published my first book and even went to the BOOK EXPO in New York to promote it the following year!
Since then I have published 5 books, 3 in English and 2 that were translated to Spanish.
I have written countless pages of journals, lyrics, poems, and sermons as well.
Being a woman and a Sr. Pastor of 'The Bridge of Faith' was such an honor and I was thrilled that God had blessed me with that season of life.
Now that He moved us to Houston, Texas I am excited to host Bible Studies and small groups in our home on top of writing and coaching other authors, writers, lyricists, poets and dreamers
But just you wait...there are so many more books to come...I am just getting started!!
Dreams, Visions, Emotions. We all have them, but often times we are afraid to share them. We may think no one else understands or sees them.
I write it.
I feel it.
I see it.
I will follow them.
Take the journey with me.
The paths are beautiful, the journey is inspiring, and the views are breathtaking.
You will be transported, challenged and educated all along the way. We all have a purpose and calling and if you have lived, you have a story.
Grow with me.
Health. Faith , Changes and Transitions...
and soooo much more...
