Where I serve

Though it breaks my heart to be leaving my beloved mountains, I am thrilled to finally be close to some real Tex-Mex. Texas State University, here I come!

My Story

The oldest of seven children, I grew up in the foothills of Colorado. I was the girl who knew all the right answers in Sunday school and never missed a week of youth group. Others had told me that Jesus was the way and so I tried to follow Him. But the reality is that while I knew a lot about Jesus, I did not really know Him. During my time at Benedictine College, through bible studies, theology classes, and deep friendships, I began to develop a more consistent prayer life and really come to know the Lord. I learned that He is my Father King who will do anything for His beloved daughter. I began to share this peace and security with other women in my life and before I knew it I was saying yes to becoming a FOCUS missionary. Having the freedom to serve students fulltime fulfills one of the greatest desires of my heart.

The other greatest desire of my heart will be fulfilled in October when at last I will give all the days of my life to the holiest man I know. John Paul has taught me so much about what it means to truly love God with your whole heart and others as yourself. I am so excited to begin our married life on mission and to share the beauty of marriage with the students of Texas State.

Please don't be a stranger. I love meeting new people and an excuse to get some chips and queso. Text me at 970.682.5277.

Your Impact

Being on mission fulltime gives me the freedom me to be radically available to my students. But this would not be possible without the support of some very dear friends who have joined my mission by financially supporting me. I believe that God desires every person to share the Gospel and make Him known. However, He does not call us all to do that in the same way. I am so grateful to be able to provide an opportunity for others to go on mission without ever leaving their homes. If you are not yet on my team I would love to share more about it with you; please reach out. If you have already said yes to coming on mission with me, thank you so much. I am honored to be sharing this work with you.
