There is something so incredibly profound that transpires when you encounter Jesus. For almost my entire life I had known of Him, but it wasn’t until I was in my mid-twenties that I actually came to know Him.

I am a wife, a mom to two boys and their baby sister. My professional background has been one in the world of finance, but following my encounter with Christ, He has since rocked that world. In December of 2016, I will have my undergraduate’s degree in Biblical Studies, and teaching His Word has become my calling. I have lead Bible studies, spoken at valley women’s retreats, and have even delivered a handful of sermons in church. I would eventually partner with Jesus in the founding of my own ministry titled B.I.G (Believing in Grace) where I teach a weekly Bible study at a local group home that houses adolescent girls whom have escaped the life of sex-trafficking and/or sexual abuse.

The icing on the cake is the absolute privilege to be a part of the vision that is loveSTRONG ministries. The ladies that I get to serve alongside are authentic, passionate, and dedicated to ministering to fellow women the love in which Christ has for us all. Every single day I wake up with a renewed sense of purpose. And while not every day is perfect, I can rejoice in the fact that we serve an absolutely perfect God.
