For the last decade, I've been connecting with women all over the world via the internet. I started off blogging about my experience as a full time volunteer in East Los Angeles, then began sharing my journey as I struggled with Crohn's Disease, and ultimately having surgery that left me with a permanent bag on my stomach. I also shared my journey as I pursued a career in music, moved to Nashville and released my first country music EP!
If you've been around for a while, you know I've rebranded and switched up the conversation more times than I can count.
To be totally honest, it's embarrassing. I felt like everyone around me knew who they were, but I just was on this constant merry go round of trying to figure out who I was.
Well, without sharing the full story just yet, life as I knew it ended. I was given a new life, made into a new creation, saved, rescued and redeemed by Jesus Christ.
He gave me a completely new heart and a completely new purpose. Instead of worrying about "following my heart" and what the heck that meant (because it wanted a million different things), I focused my heart on Christ. My restless heart found rest in Him. He has my complete devotion for eternity.
So, friend, if you've been around my neck of the woods or if you're new here, welcome. This is a place where you'll be encouraged in your walk with Christ, or maybe you'll learn about Him for the first time. My goal is to share the love of Christ with as many people as I can.
I can't wait to share what He's placed on my heart for The Hope Collective.
To His glory, not my own. That He may increase, and I may decrease.
All my love, in Christ,
