I am super excited about the opportunity to share my heart with you around the things I love most-the Word of God, leadership, capacity building and creativity.  I love reading God's Word, teaching it, writing about it and encouraging others who are also on the journey of being conformed to the image of Christ.  My life mission statement: "To make God’s Word plain and practical so His people live victoriously!” I'll also share insights from my first book, He Makes All Things Beautiful: God's Transformation of Our Emotional Wounds, Scars, and Brokenness, Westbow Press, 2013.

We grow and develop in the context of community. I'm always trying to strategically posture myself so that my capacity and the capacity of those I influence is always evolving and expanding.

Why am I writing and sharing? 

  • To encourage all of us to live victoriously
  • To share my journey from a victorious vantage point
  • To honor and celebrate the insights God reveals by His Holy Spirit
  • To be in community with you in such a way that we sharpen one another for His glory!

With over 25 years of progressive leadership experience and responsibility in the Air Force, federal government, and civilian sector, I'm passionate about leader development and capacity building. In recent years, I've had the privilege of working as a Leadership Coach and Facilitator for military units. I currently develop and lead projects that build capacity for organizations which serve children and families.

I enjoy coming alongside emerging and seasoned leaders. I spend time reading, journaling and writing.  When spare time shows up, I sew, scrapbook, and do anything else “craft-related.”

Stay close to Him. Live beautiful.
