As a 20 year old college student, the Lord rocked my world by leading me to Galatians 5:1 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” I began to understand that the freedom and healing that the Lord had for me was out there in front of me, and yet I often chose to remain enslaved. I started to ask God to lay out for me the areas of my life where I remained stuck and to truly make me free. God has been faithful to do that over and over again for all these years. As God and I journeyed together behind the scenes in my life, I started to ask myself “Could I do this for other people? When life is hard and they feel like they are the problem, could I give other people hope?” I started my professional career in ministry before going back to school to get a Master’s Degree in Counseling. I worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor for 11 years before surrendering to full-time pastoral ministry.
My greatest joy in this life is my family. I am married to Russell, my best friend and the funniest, most giving man I have ever known. I am mom to Campbell, Bennett, Elliott Hope, and Isaiah. These five are my greatest adventure, they keep me laughing (my favorite thing!), and they are the very best thing about me. Also, I am passionate about coffee and adoption.
I love people. I love that people are flawed, that we come with baggage that needs to be dealt with, and yet God chooses not to leave us there. I love that we get things wrong and don’t know how to do relationships, however we are given the ability to navigate through life with the Lord. And I love that I have a front row seat in watching the Lord make overcomers out of people. In my role as Discipleship Pastor, I get to help to ensure that The Waters Church maintains a single focus, leading people closer and closer to Jesus. My hope is that the people of this church would be single-minded of their pursuits of Christ, and the world around us would be impacted because we as individuals and as a church are desperately in love with Jesus.
