Jesus, Missions, and More


Constant cries filled the room as I stood there holding the most beautiful brown haired, black eyed baby. Cold concrete walls and floors caving in around me. My heart ached as I realized the pain that plagued the rooms of the orphanage I stood in. Many of the children too young to even comprehend the reality surrounding them, while others knew exactly that the classification of “abandoned and orphaned” would forever identify them.

There she stood. Helpless. Hopeless. And in utter desperation. The issue she had lived with her whole life had completely consumed her. It was the very thing that robbed her of her livelihood.

My life was over as I knew it. All this fear because my reality hadn’t aligned with my ‘dreams.’ There were specific things I had waited for my whole life that hadn’t been fulfilled yet, and the thought of turning 30 without those things  threw me for a tail spin.

Walking on Water


Starting The Beauty Project has been a dream tucked into the forefront of my heart for many years. Now you may think, “it’s just another blog, what’s the big deal?” It took a lot of encouragement, prayer, and courage to start “just another blog.” All the fears behind it surfaced continuously. Yet, I know that God is calling me to use my love for writing and my story for something greater. So here I am, writing with a purpose that I know is bigger than myself coupled with a great desire to share the love of Christ.
