I’m a native Texan, transplanted to Colorado for over a decade. I graduated from Texas Christian University, and spent a few years teaching first grade. After moving to Colorado for my husband’s job, I began an in-depth Bible study and realized for the first time that God was more than a distant heavenly figure I needed to please—He was near and present and loved me deeply. I’ve taught Bible studies for many years, and my heart’s desire is to passionately communicate God’s truth so our hearts reflect Jesus’ heart! I love training leaders, encouraging women to know Jesus, and connecting them to each other. I also have a certificate in Spiritual Direction, a ministry that coaches individuals to notice God’s gentle invitations in their lives. My husband, Brad and I have two kids, Jackson and Lilly and our (my) awesome dog, Henley. Watching the kids’ football, basketball, and lacrosse games is how we spend many days. I also have deep love for college football, the beach, podcasts and emojis. It’s the little things!
