Yes, I'm from Texas, but I travel quite a bit, sharing my story and insight gained along the way with students and adults throughout Houston and across the U.S. I don't mince words, but I do believe in a grace-filled delivery. That's because I've been shown such extreme grace myself. You see . . .
While I'm so very grateful to have such a sweet family, my life was not always so abundant. As a teenager, I was clueless about God, specifically His plan for sexuality and relationships. As a result, I became sexually active as a young teen and suffered the baggage that goes along with it.
At 20 years old, I experienced an unplanned pregnancy, followed by a rushed marriage and painful divorce. As a single mom at 23, I finally realized something: God is a loving, forgiving God, and His biblical standards are for my protection—and yours.
Married to the love of my life for over 20 years now, and with an imperfect but precious family, I am devoted to helping others see the beauty in biblical instructions and realities. I'm especially drawn to people who are skeptical or cynical about God and the Bible. I frequently speak about sexuality and relationships, as well as other significant life matters, including mental-emotional health.
Having experienced a sudden tsunami of suppressed childhood trauma in 2019, I know what it's like to walk through the long, dark valley of inner turmoil. My message of hope to those suffering mentally and emotionally comes from a sincere place: I can identify. Through various processes, the love of God has restored me and strengthens me daily. Literally. If you're wondering what I mean by that, I often talk about it on my co-hosted podcast, Fearless and Free: Spirit, Soul, Body.
I write books, non-fiction and fiction, and even won an award (glass trophy and all) for my young adult novel, The Delusion—the first book in The Delusion series. And while it's taken years of perseverance and some rookie mistakes along the way, an incredible team of people and I are currently preparing for the feature film production of The Delusion—woo hoo! If you want to stay posted on the journey, just sign up below to receive updates.
I have a special love for young people. That's one reason I'm super excited about I AM WORTHY, a mental-emotional wellness and character-building program for students. I have the honor of facilitating the content at an inner-city high school, and I get to serve as the writer for the video-based curriculum—for use in schools and homes across the U.S. and beyond.
Thank you for taking an interest in my story. Feel free to contact me; I read and return my emails myself.
Blessings to you,
