I can’t believe I am getting the opportunity to write this!

Working with StrongFamilies has literally been my dream since my Dad started the ministry in 1998, and almost 20 years later, here I am … getting to work with my Dad and help others. I really couldn’t be more thankful.

For me, getting to do this is immensely personal. Even though I grew up with a dad in ministry, I decided as a strong-willed first born to try to figure out life on my own apart from Christ, and my family.

This led me to disaster, and at 20, I found myself trapped in an abusive relationship.

5 years later, the Lord literally and physically rescued me. At that point, I surrendered my life to Christ, and He began the incredible work of healing and restoration in my life and family.

That brings us to today.

I believe that EVERYONE can experience that SAME restoration and healing – no matter what decisions you’ve made, or what life has thrown at you.

Like my Dad, I believe that begins with a personal relationship with Christ, and from there resources like The Blessing, LifeMapping, Coaching, and Training will help you discover the INCREDIBLE person you are – and the UNIQUE purpose only you have here on earth.

I’m beyond excited to get to connect with you, and help you walk through your own personal journey.

I’ve had the incredible opportunities to:

Speak with my Dad at multiple churches and training events around the country, including as a Keynote speaker at AACC

For the last 9 years I have worked for, and with, multiple nonprofits helping with fundraising, marketing, and strategy both as an employee and in an agency/consulting role.

Purse writing through my blog, MyBelovedDaugther.com.

I co-founded a consulting company, The Nonprofit Consulting Shop, several years ago to provide top level training and resources to small and start-up nonprofits.

I’ve been able to train with leading experts including Bobb Biehl (the consultant and brilliant strategic mind behind organizations like Prison Fellowship and Chic-fil-a)

Spoken at women’s ministry events, written guest blogs, and lead small groups of women pursing healing.

Loving others is my heartbeat. And getting to love and do life with my incredible husband, Joey, tops it all. As newlyweds, we live in WA with our two amazing German Shorthaired Pointer puppies, Fitz, and Phoenix.

Favorite Memory As a Wife:

Joey and I are still very newlyweds, however, I think my favorite memory of being married so far is honestly our wedding day. It was SO redemptive for me, and I couldn’t believe how many things God provided that day to make it unforgettable (from a sunny day in WA, to a musician from The Voice singing me down the aisle, it was incredible start to finish).

Fun Fact:

I LOVE to hike and explore the Pacific Northwest (PNW), and have a goal to travel to every country by 2025.

Favorite Sports Team:

The Arizona Cardinals! My husband and I even named our dogs Fitz (after Larry Fitzgerald), and Phoenix, because of the location.
