Hi! I’m glad you’re here.
A few things about me:
I was a teen mom and now I’m raising teens. Much of what I’ve learned in life was discovered through the lens of motherhood.
My husband and I got married only 4 months after we met. We have 4 children and a son-in-law.
I’ve lived in 5 states all over the map, but right now, home is in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona. The forecast is almost always pure sunshine. This makes me very happy.
I like food and fitness. A good day is: coffee, a good sweat, setting a new personal record, and going rogue on a recipe.
I’m a voracious reader, frequent biker, and a big believer in the power of prayer. I celebrate overlooked joys such as half birthdays, kindness, a hand-written note, ‘aha’ moments, personal growth, and doing things that matter simply because they matter.
I’m a grant writer, content writer, and Trauma Specialist at a Phoenix nonprofit for women in poverty, crisis, or abuse. I’ve learned a ridiculous amount from the women there and I’m indebted to them for showing me true humility and dignity.
My work has been featured with (in)courage, Fathom, Ruminate magazine, Mudroom, Just Between Us magazine, The Better Mom, Joy of It, and others.
I journaled through the entire Bible for each of my children. Took a year and a half, but it was the most defining Bible study I’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend it.
I believe truth is most captivating when lived genuinely, spoken plainly, and offered gracefully. Jesus gave the best example. One More Truth is all about His life and love and His presence confirmed in ordinary moments. Seeing His goodness – that is hope to me. Trusting Him more is true faith. Loving Him wholeheartedly and loving others sincerely – that is real love.
You are welcome here.
