I am grateful you’re here.
I’m the author of several books, including my latest, Known: How Believing Who God Says You Are Changes Everything. I wrote Known for one reason – You!
Everything changes when you believe this incredible truth: You are known by God.
Known invites you to understand and embrace what it means to be created and named in the image of God. I am praying that as you read, you will find freedom from any false names you are living under, so that you can experience divine transformation and become who you truly are in Christ.
It’s time to claim your powerful, personal God-given name and to recognize and speak true identity into the lives of others. Find out more about Known here.
I am also the author of the award-nominated The Louder Song: Listening for Hope in the Midst of Lament (NavPress, 2019) and Overcomer: Breaking Down the Walls of Shame and Rebuilding Your Soul (Zondervan, 2015). Whether you are walking with grief, tragedy, spiritual doubt, chronic pain, insecurity, or in a difficult season of life, I wrote these books so that the hurting person will know they are not alone, and to help all of us find God and lasting hope in the midst of life’s often unbearable pain, shame, and heartache.
I’m the co-host of a daily talk show — The Common Good Talk Show— on AM 1160 Hope For Your Life, and the Nothing is Wasted Podcast, where we tell redemptive stories of hope and healing through pain and difficulty – both are available wherever you “cast your pods”.
My amazing husband Kevin and our three amazing boys planted Renewal Church a few years ago, and I’m deeply passionate about local church leadership, the multi-ethnic church, discipleship, equipping, evangelism, lamenting collectively with others, and more.
Lastly, I write for Propel Women and Christianity Today’s The Better Samaritan, plus a few other venues. (You can check out some of my articles here.) I have contributed to Ann Voskamp’s A Holy Experience, Lifeway, Proverbs 31, and more.
