Where I serve

As a third year missionary, God has called me to serve college students a special way. I will be working on the Digital Campus which means that I will be working with women across the country that are on campuses that do not have FOCUS missionaries. Jesus really hand picked this role for me this year because I will be able to work from Des Moines while the rest of my team is in Denver because I am getting married!!  I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it!

My Story

I graduated from the University of South Dakota in 2016. During that time I was  I was able to grow in my faith through the help of the team of FOCUS missionaries on my campus. I don’t have to tell you that the Church has been through a lot … or about the challenges we are facing in our world today. Many young people are asking the questions: Is the Church even relevant today? Is Jesus Christ really relevant to my life? I also don’t have to tell you about the direction our culture is heading.  All we have to do is pick up a newspaper or turn on the evening news. But what commonly happens is that kids are raised in Catholic homes and then leave for college.  And it’s there on the college campus– where most people walk away from the faith. 

-Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing

-Almost 80% of those who leave the Catholic faith do so by the age of 23

There is good news! FOCUS is making a difference. I know because thousands of people’s lives, like mine, are being changed! I met a FOCUS missionary and she helped me to understand my identity as a beloved daughter of God. I am called to be in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! My life has never been the same since I started living out of this relationship. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to this relationship with Jesus Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to the women at Indiana University and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.

Your Impact

I am blessed to have a job where I am able to hang out with college students everyday. However, this job is so much more than that. It's urgent that these students know that they are known and loved by our Lord, Jesus Christ. When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of amazing mission partners like you to help me through this mission. I am blessed with the most amazing people who will journey with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in joining 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!
