I am uber-passionate about empowering women to overcome their shame - specifically through the Gospel. I'm a wife of fifteen years to my hubs, Kevin, and a mom to three young and crazy boys (which is to say I spend most days in my pajamas drinking waaaaay too much coffee. I drink it for the creamer, mostly; I heart coffee creamer.) 

On those miraculous days when I manage to get dressed, I mentor young women, and speak at churches, MOPS groups, bible studies, ministry events, and retreats. I also serve as the creative director and on the teaching team at Renewal Church, a brand new church plant in the Chicago area.

I'm a member of the Redbud Writers Guild and have written for (In)courage, Gifted for Leadership, MOPS, Lifeway, Fulfill, Abingdon Women, Women at Risk International, and more.
