MY FAITH JOURNEY

I grew up going to church and being highly involved from a young age. From the time I was born my family moved, on average, every 6 months. From the West to the East coast. I loved spending as much time as I could wherever we were attending. I was able to see different cultures, communities, and churches.  

When I was 19, my parents got a divorce and it really changed the way I view God, my relationships, and the whole world around me. It wasn’t until I was around 20/21 that I truly repented of my sins and chose a daily relationship with God.  

A year before Travis and I got married, I moved to Europe/India for a Discipleship Training School and seek what God has in store for His Kingdom through my life. Travis and I have been married for 3 years and we have a spunky little 2 year old that teaches us the beauty of God everyday!

FAMILY

PASSIONS FOR THE KINGDOM

To show grace and love for all people. I have a passion to help people find a personal relationship with God and grow His Kingdom.  

FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE

Psalm 40:1-3 

I waited patiently for the Lord; 

    he inclined to me and heard my cry. 

He drew me up from the pit of destruction, 

    out of the miry bog, 

and set my feet upon a rock, 

    making my steps secure. 

He put a new song in my mouth, 

    a song of praise to our God. 

Many will see and fear, 

    and put their trust in the Lord. 

HOBBIES

Spending time with my family, crafts/sewing, world travel.
