It's so hard to summarize your life and mission in a few sentences but I'll give it a try. I grew up in less than ideal circumstances. My childhood was full of flavor...drug smuggling, alcoholism, violence, divorce, and emotional abuse. Everyday, my stepfather told me that I was a "stupid, ugly, red head that could never do anything right" and that lie took root in my soul. Convinced that my life was hopeless and I would never amount to anything led me to self medicate and then attempt suicide at the age of 15, My story could have ended there...BUT GOD!
In fact, that's right where my life began! It's also where my passion for helping people find and live out their God-given purpose was birthed. God radically transformed my life and turned my mess into a message of hope. Instead of becoming another statistic, I live to be an example of what God can do with a fully surrendered heart.
I've had the honor of leading and pastoring in the local church for over 20 years and its been quite a journey. I've learned that leadership takes an equal amount of grit and grace. I've also learned a lot about people, culture, organizational structure, managing in crisis, soul care and how to thrive through it all and I'm passionate about pouring into other leaders because so many have selflessly invested in me!
