I mostly feel like a Nomad. I most often feel like I have pushed off from the shore that used to hold me, but I’m still too far away from where I will land. I am fighting through the tension.
I have lived most of my life in the DC area. I love this city. I have lived in other various places, and traveled overseas quite a bit. What can I say, I am sucker for jet lag and culture shock.
My heart and passion flow out of a place of experiencing God making life out of my brokenness. Life has a way of leaving its mark on our hearts – resulting in more pieces than wholeness. I did not grow up in a Christian home, but one of brokenness marked with the grief of adultery and divorce. In the midst, God made himself known. I have been on a restoration journey ever since.
I believe that apart from God, our lives carry many broken pieces. My desire is to teach people how to place those pieces into the hands of the one who holds them all together – the one who makes the puzzle complete.
My heart is to follow after the invitation that Jesus gave all of us to “come and see” life known in him. My passions are to make known that life and invitation to others by way of leadership and teaching. I love teaching and speaking. I know public speaking ranks as the number one phobia, but I love it.
Every day I wrestle to make faith in him my lifestyle, but know I still get in my own way. My life’s journey is to believe in his different, which leads to life being lived different in me. This is the undercurrent for what I write about.
I value community, conversations, and good banter. I value your heart and story, and would love to hear about yours.
