I didn't grow up in a home that loved and followed Jesus. In fact my home was downright broken, and my heart right along with it.
Thankfully our past doesn't determine our future.
Jesus got a hold of my broken heart in my early 20's, after giving birth to my firstborn baby girl. My husband and I desperately wanted to be good parents. To raise our children well and not break them apart on the rocks of our dysfunction. We both came from such destruction and had big dreams for our kids. We wanted them to have a lovely upbringing.
When I first went to church I was not healthy at all. I was afraid of people. I was afraid of other women. I avoided connection and friendship as much as possible. I would show up to church late and leave early to keep from having to endure the small talk and awkward moments that come in social gatherings. I thought I was keeping my heart safe.
I didn't realize what I was missing out on.
Here I am, almost 2 decades later, and I am barely a shadow of my former self. God has helped me "grow up" so to speak. Out of my selfish thinking (not fully, let's be honest I am still human!) and out of my hiding heart.
He has helped me realize the power of community. The amazing things that happen when we put down roots in his House, and build relationships with other Christ followers.
He has shown me the immense value in women supporting, loving, and praying for one another while doing life/ministry together! It has fueled a passion in me to help as many women as possible gain two important revelations:
1. Their personal value and worth in Christ!
2. The incredible gifts, talents and abilities God has placed inside of them!
I believe with all of my heart that when God's daughters really GET IT, the world can be immensely impacted with the Gospel. This is where the idea for She Speaks United was born, and it has become the main ministry of my life. To create a place for women to flourish and grow together into the amazing world changers God has created them to be, and we are working to build a platform with which to launch them into the world.
“If there ever comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known.” Matthew Arnold
Who I am
I am first and foremost a daughter of the MOST High King Jesus.
I am a wife to the handsome, incredible charming and loving Billy. He is a serious God gift to my life! He serves me, grows me and enriches my life in ways I could never count!
I am a Mommy. I have two talented, brilliant and bold daughters and we are the best of friends! They are one of my main motivations to serve in women's ministry. I want to teach them about the power and influence of a Global Sisterhood, empowered and serving Christ. And yes, they still call me Mommy.
I am your humble servant. I would be honoured to help you in your journey towards Christ.
