Where I serve

Hello! Welcome to my page; I am excited you are here and I hope you enjoy learning more about the beautiful way God is working in my life, especially through FOCUS! 

I am a third-year missionary and I am currently serving as the Team Director at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. This small town Kentucky girl never would have imagined living the 'big city' Florida life, but I am so glad God's plans are way better than mine. It has been such a blessing walking alongside the team and students at UNF this past year; I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for the campus this year! Meet my teammates-- Allie, Jesus, and Mackenzie:  

I always love meeting new people! So please reach out to me, we can talk about life over a 'cup of Joe' or go on a new adventure such as learning to surf or trail exploring! I would love to share with you how God has been working in my life! 

My Story

How did I get here, you may ask? When I was a junior at Murray State University, a team of FOCUS missionaries came to campus to serve. A missionary named Megan reached out to me. She had such an exuberant joy and love that I desired to obtain. She introduced me to a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church which ignited a zeal in my heart to lead others into the same relationship. Through prayer, I realized that God was calling me to follow Him in a much deeper way by leading college students to fall in love with Him, just as Megan led me. 

“He said to them, ‘Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ At once they left their nets and followed him.” Matthew 4:19-20  

It has been such a beautiful journey so far! God continues to prove His love for me and slowly reveals His amazing plan each and every single day. Nothing makes me happier than sharing life with the students at UNF and through that, showing them God's love. 

Your Impact

If you walk on any college campus, just look around and you'll notice something everyone has in common: they're all seeking the meaning of life. Sadly, a majority of people try finding that meaning in superficial friendships and worldly desires that the college life has to offer. As a FOCUS missionary I'm placed on the front line of a spiritual battle, trying to lead students to Christ while they are told worldly desires will make you happier. This mission is hard; but it's one of the most important things anyone could ever do in their lives, seeing as the consequences of it are not of this world, they are eternal. These souls matter. This mission matters. I cannot do it without you. Will you consider joining me in saving souls for Christ and helping them on their path to eternity?

It has been said, "Some give by going, others go by giving, but without both there would be no mission." Without people like you, this mission would not be possible. So thank you! Your support will enable me to lead Bible studies, mentor students through discipleship, and invite them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know when it would be good to reach you. I'd love to meet up with you or call you and tell you how you can make an eternal difference. I would be honored if you said yes to God by joining me on this mission to save souls!
