“Maybe you’ve skimmed through my bio, but I’d rather give you a glimpse into my real life. My story isn’t something I can neatly sum up in a few sentences. It’s a complicated journey filled with all sorts of adventures, leading me to a place of healing, wholeness, and freedom.

There are days when I feel that freedom to my core. Then there are days when I forget about this incredible gift ‘I AM’ has given me. On those days, I catch myself living as if I’m lacking something I already possess. It’s during those moments that ‘I AM’ gently reminds me to just be.

My journey has seen its share of ups and downs, but I’m proud to say that the tough days are becoming fewer and farther between. If any of this sounds familiar to you and you’re looking for a friend to walk alongside you, consider this your open invitation to join me in discovering who God truly designed you to be.”

God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy. -Psalm 68:6 NLT
A sweet friendship refreshes the soul. -Proverbs 27:9
