I am a coffee-loving self-proclaimed “accidental community builder” who loves creating a space where faith, fitness and friendship come together. This space originally started as a private site where I could journal, post thoughts from my day. In 2009, God put it on my heart to make my blog public and begin using it for His glory. It’s been a blessing to see this site evolve. My passion is to encourage, equip, and inspire women. I pray you might feel welcome when you visit. Kick your feet up & make yourself at home!

About My Family:
My husband, Matt and I married in 2006 but have been together since 2000. We were high school sweethearts and “band geeks” who, by the grace of God, survived a 5 year long distance relationship during our college years. We’re committed to a marriage that is not just good, but great (though certainly not always easy) –and I’m so thankful to have married my best friend. And now we have our amazing daughter, Madison Sophia, to add to the joy!
God has blessed me with the opportunity to work as the Editorial & Marketing Manager for incourage.me, home for the hearts of millions of women around the world. I’m also a contributing writer at (in)courage, author of Creative Basics, a speaker and have been featured in several magazines and podcasts. You can find more ways to connect with me here.
I love speaking and have a heart for encouraging women to find the unique “thing” God has created in them, discover how He wants us to use it in our specific season, and to find women to collaborate with – because our gifts alone are good, but our gifts together can do great work for the Kingdom. If you’d like to contact me about speaking at your event, please visit this page.
A Final Request 🙂 I welcome and encourage comments on any blog post but I ask you to remember that these posts are about my life, my faith, my community and my family. As Ann Voskamp and Holley Gerth so eloquently put it, “Only speak words that make souls stronger.”
