get to know me
I have a heart for seeing people restored and living intentional lives…
Because I was once broken and unfulfilled. I’ve wandered down dark paths and somehow found my way back into God’s beautiful light. My journey has been and still is a testament to God’s faithfulness and grace.
Although I grew up in church, I have come to realize that being in church does not mean that you are in Christ. I spent most of my childhood trying to ‘be good’ which set me down a path of striving. I wanted to excel at everything and for the most part I did…
I got good grades, went to college, and had multiple degrees and certifications. If you looked at the world’s definition of success, then I was doing just fine. But what I didn’t realize was how much of my identity was interwoven with my titles and accomplishments. It wasn’t until the Lord started stripping them away one by one that I was able to see who He truly created me to be.
It was a season of refining.
The Lord placed me over the fire to remove my impurities. So many things came to the surface; fear, doubt, pride, selfishness, coveting, and idols. And slowly but surely, each lie was replaced with truth. What started as a gentle whisper to meditate in His word, led me down a path of restoration and fruitfulness.
That journey and God’s vision of The Restored Orchard became a burden to spread the lessons learned. To offer pieces of my testimony as glimmers of hope and shine the light of God’s goodness into this dark world. To remind people of the transformation that takes place simply by dwelling in the Word of God. It is my prayer that engaging with the Bible and spending time with God will challenge you to weed out things of this world and bear fruit for our Heavenly Father.
