Discipleship Counselor – Conference Speaker


I love connecting with others and seeing God at work in this world. While I have always had a heart for missions and ministry, I have not always understood the difference between striving and rest. I grew up in a loving Christian home and heard from an early age about God’s love. I received Christ very young and quickly determined to prove I was worth it.

Living under the pressure to perform, I channeled my energy into service for God. My deep love and curiosity for other cultures led me overseas where I served with a team for many years. It was during this time overseas that much of my personal paradigm fell apart. I discovered the futility of self-effort and the incredible joy of seeing God transform lives. I was putting an all out effort into working for God, which of course led to failure and disappointment. Through a season of darkness I encountered God’s love on a new level and began to discover what it means to receive. He invited me on a journey to let go of striving and to learn to operate from a place of rest.

As I learn to draw from Him as my source, I love to share the joy of rest with others. I am passionate about sharing the good news of God’s grace and seeing knowledge become a reality in people’s lives.

I received my M.A. in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University in 2016 and I am thrilled to serve as a discipleship counselor at Grace Ministries.

do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes…”
