Do you ever wonder why you’re here, contemplate the purpose of your life or find it hard to push back the darkness?
Like you, I know how hard it is to be a girl or woman in our world today. I was the good girl and scholar athlete hiding behind a smile as I worked overtime to keep it all together. But at the age of eighteen, I came undone. Two weeks after I graduated high school, due to a mental health challenge and many complexities, I found myself in the psychiatric hospital wanting to end my life.
I was as broken as a girl could be. Jesus found me there and though my journey has been full of detours and breakdowns, I live loved by the God who has mended the broken pieces of my life together and given me more purpose and joy than I ever could have imagined.
As an author and the Founder and Director of Wonderfully Made, a Christian ministry for young women, I spend my days writing, speaking and helping girls and women live into their true value and identity.
I’m a California girl and lover of bluegrass who is always covered in dog hair. When I’m not stringing words together, hosting our podcast or overseeing the ministry of Wonderfully Made you can find me surfing and adventuring up and down our golden coast with my husband Paul and our Golden Retriever Gidget.
I’m so glad you here and I hope the words I share help you find the identity, love and worth you were created for.
