When I was a teenager, I was convinced I was going to be the next Oprah–I wrote for and then became editor-in-chief of my school newspaper. I was voted “Most Likely to Have Her Own Talk Show” in high school. I had my college picked out and thought I had it all figured out…until God called me to youth ministry.
I graduated from Southwest Baptist University in 2012 with a BS in Christian Ministry with an emphasis in Youth and a minor in Theology. I have over 8 years of experience in youth ministry. Currently I serve as the Middle School Youth Director at a fantastic church in Indianapolis, and having been there 5 years and plan to be many more.
I began blogging when I got my first director position at the tender age of 20, so if you do some digging you’ll see some nonsense (and growth).
Other facts about me: I’m an amateur social advocate, but learning. I’m a huge St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. I love coffee, red wine, and iced tea. I am super-close to my mom and sister, and talk to them about everything. I’m OBSESSED with personality tests and how to use them as catalysts in both my leadership and my personal mental health. I’m marrying my best friend in October, a tender man named PJ who loves me and my one-eyed cat dearly.
I blog about youth ministry, life as a Millennial in the Christian church, and about lessons I’m learning as a lover of Christ. As a disclaimer, what I post on my blog is not necessarily the views of my congregation or my denomination. I love both dearly, I just don’t speak for them. :)
