Hi friends! I’m so glad you’re here. I hope you’ll stick around so we can get to know each other. Community is important, and I really believe that we are meant to live out the tough stuff walking alongside each other.
I’m a 20-something college student at Moody Bible Institute, studying ministry leadership and women’s ministry. I love diving into God’s Word and I love talking about it with other believers. Writing is my other love. I started dreaming big and working hard at 16 years old when I accepted my first freelance writing job. It hasn’t stopped ever since. My main goal is to use my writing and speaking as a ministry.
I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to share the story of my hospital bracelets all around the country. That pursuit was “launched” through a loving and supportive group of friends within a homeschool speech and debate league called NCFCA. They helped me cultivate this vision and encouraged me to pursue writing and speaking as a career.
Issues surrounding disability and chronic illness are close to my heart because of my own personal experience, and I hope I can offer a Christ-centered perspective on this subject. I’ve also appeared at events and on television through the Muscular Dystrophy Association as a Goodwill Ambassador.
Here, on my blog, you’ll find engaging conversations and thoughts from a Christ-follower who’s navigating life in a fallen world, living with a chronic illness, asking lots of questions and thinking about ideas, always looking for hope while acknowledging the painfulness within circumstances, and running off the desire to share the depth of grace and freedom woven all throughout God’s Word.
You can find my writing in a few other places, also –
I create and curate resources on writing, blogging, marketing, business, and platform building in The Writer-Entrepreneur section of my site.
I write articles for Desiring God as a guest contributor.
I contribute to The Mighty, where I have the opportunity to talk about important topics on chronic illness and disability, and offer support and encouragement. One of my articles was featured on Yahoo.
I blog on The Huffington Post about issues affecting those with a chronic illness or disability, as well.
I was also a contributing writer for the Jesus Calling Devotional Bible (Thomas Nelson), a co-author of 365 More Meditations for Teens (Abingdon Press), and a contributor for three years to Devozine Magazine (The Upper Room).
