Hey there! I’m so glad you’re here!

You know what? I believe you’re here for a reason and I can’t wait to explore what that might be.

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m a woman with many passions, who has lived through a lot of hard things. I'm guessing, whether you are a man or woman, you have experienced a number of desires and challenges in life too?

If you've ever wondered how to live well as a Christian in this hard to live life, you've come to the right place. While I don't always feel well about life, I'm passionate about cultivating a life well-lived, because I know the power of God to revive weary souls

I have a degree in psychology, a passion for Christian counseling, and a whole lot of personal experiences with struggles of many kinds. (Disordered eating, self-harm, anxiety, depression, grief, PTSD, date rapes (one resulting in lost virginity & one resulting in the gift of my son), motherhood as a single mom, foster mom, step mom, and more.)

I've also known the powerful, transforming work of God while living in a sin-filled world. I've wondered how to heal a hurting heart and what to do when life doesn't go as planned. I believe there is more peace, joy, and freedom to experience with our good God, no matter what season we are in and no matter our circumstances are.

Cultivating a life well-lived means experiencing more of God and letting the experiences of God change us from the inside out. It means being transformed into his image through the good and bad times, through the easy and hard.

A life well-lived never denies emotions or the reality of struggles, yet fights the work of the enemy and chooses to live boldly.


My heart is passionate for all of us who struggle to grow in faith and feel weighed down by life.

I want to see believers rise up in their faith because God is more than our circumstances and no matter how bad our circumstances get, God never changes.

We, as believers in Christ, do not need to live defeated by the enemy. We need to cultivate the things in our lives which help us become who we are designed to be.
