Where I serve

                I am grateful to be called to serve at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho. What a blessing to invest in women right here in the Pacific Northwest! I will be working alongside three other full time missionaries, Timio (and wife Clarissa), Gabriella, and Tyler. The joy of the Gospel propels each of us forward as we pursue Christ and invite others to enter into a relationship with Him through His Church. Please keep us in your prayers!

My Story

                One of the greatest blessings in my life was a family devoted to the Catholic faith who raised me up in the Church, and instilled in me a desire for Heaven. Beginning my college career I was blessed with a Newman Center which offered me companions for my faith journey. College was a great gift, but I quickly became so devoted to my studies that my identity was rooted in my apparent success, instead of my identity as a beloved daughter of God.  At the commencement of my sophomore year, FOCUS missionaries came to my campus, and one began intentionally investing in me. Our conversation sparked in me a desire to go on a mission trip to New Mexico where I worked in an elementary school Through an encounter with a student I came to recognize the needy face of the Child Jesus. Not just materially needy, but hungry for the small amount of love I could offer Him, a love that began with the response, "yes Lord, I want to know you personally, as a friend." That little invitation into my heart was all He needed to restore my identity, and draw me back to Himself.

                A second mission trip during the spring of my junior year to the Dominican Republic opened my eyes to the urgency and joy with which the Gospel needs to be shared. Urgency because souls are saddened and lonely, distracted by the unsatisfactory "goods" of the world. Joy because the Gospel really is the best news, and is completely uncontainable. The Father's love for each of His children called me to live more firmly in my identity as a Beloved Daughter, and from that sprung a desire to help my brothers and sisters come into that lived expression of Love.

Your Impact

                The New Evangelization is the thrilling invitation given us by Pope St. John Paul II to fulfill our Christian calling to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth! When the Lord called me to FOCUS, I knew my "yes" was not simply mine, but the impetus for others to reply to the Lord's calling. As I invest in students, I will be inviting them to respond "yes" to the Lord's call to Christian discipleship. My hope is your "yes" to partner with me spiritually and financially on this journey will be a dawning of new hope in your life as the Lord pours forth His graces upon you.
