Isn’t it beautiful to be reminded we aren’t alone?

The stories you’ll find here are an open invitation for you to pull up a chair and experience the camaraderie of belonging, empathy, and healing. As we candidly share our stories, we discover we have more in common than we assume.

Gathering people to share their stories is one of my favorite things. Having you here is the next best thing to meeting around the table.

You are welcome here. You are invited. I’d love to hear your story.

I love people…like, LOVE people! We are complicated and exquisite, each of us a reflection of a good, loving Creator. My intention in sharing stories is to experience God’s true love for us, making peace with Him, ourselves, and others.

None of us is born crunchy, but life has moments and seasons of grinding us down. I’ve experienced many of those moments, some almost consumed me, but I’m still here, so I’m pressing on with intention.

It’s truly up to us to choose our outlook…how we’ll respond to hard times, negativity, and plans gone stale.

I choose to see life through a hopeful and grateful lens of extravagant LOVE. 

I love God, humans, theology, social advocacy, writing, gathering women, nature, stories, veggies, Pilates, world travel, speaking Spanish, snuggling with my kids, meaningful conversation, secret getaways with my husband, talking to strangers, the music of U2, yoga, jeans, flip flops, muscles, creating, natural medicine, telling others how amazing they are, throwing spontaneous parties, remodeling, designing, word-smithing, sunsets, changing seasons, climbing trees, and wandering around the world’s biggest cities without a map…and lots of other things, too!

As a writer, speaker, and thought leader, I invite others to candidly explore fresh perspectives relating to God and humanity by sharing personal stories in an honest, authentic, and intentional way.

With a background in theology, pastoral care, and Leadership Development, I founded BEVY, a non-profit platform where women are invited to share their stories shamelessly. BEVY joins women in authentic mentoring relationships based on our unique life-mentoring curriculum, equipping girls of all ages to live their most revolutionary lives. We also host intentional retreats and workshops for women around the world.

We recently moved from beautiful Colorado to creative Nashville to hone my writing skills in order to share my truest story. I’m writing an existential theological memoir about growing up in America’s ever-changing Christianity. Join my Facebook writing team here!
