Where I serve

I am beyond excited to get to serve at Loras College this year! Lets go Duhawks!!

My Story

My journey with Jesus Christ has been nothing short of a roller coaster. I spend my entire junior year playing a game of tug-o-war with my plans for my life and God’s. When I decided during junior year, that my plans were better than God’s plans, my prayer life became almost non-existent leading me to a lifestyle that left me empty and broken. When I finally allowed Christ back into my heart, I realized that this emptiness I was feeling was the lack of Jesus Christ in my life. 

At the beginning of my senior year I knew I needed to start fresh and God brought an amazing FOCUS missionary into my life and she became an inspiration and an amazing virtuous friend. She helped me grow even closer to Christ than I ever had been before and I felt this call in my heart to be this type of friend for other women.

I have experienced the intense desire to be loved and included, and I have searched for that feeling in all the wrong places just like many college students do. But I have also felt the beautiful and satisfying love of Jesus Christ and I want to be able to share that love with everyone I encounter, which is why I said “yes” to FOCUS. The Mission of FOCUS is “To know Christ Jesus, and to fulfill His great commission by first living and then
communicating the fullness of life within the family of God, the Church,” which is exactly what I intend to do next semester. I’m so excited to continue the mission God has sent me one with you!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
