My Passion and Purpose

Do you want to be encouraged to be the best of who you are and to draw closer to the One who created you? That's exactly what my passion and purpose is.


I love sharing my songs and stories around the world at events, retreats, on the radio, Youtube and TV. A number of my songs have been nominated for GMA Covenant and Word Awards. They are meant to hit your heart and get you thinking and thanking.


God is central in my life - but it wasn't always that way. For my first 16 years of my life I didn't know of God. Coming from a loving home, I felt that doing my best and treating others like I would like to be treated is what counted. However, I felt there was a void in my life.


Then I met a high school classmate who dramatically changed within a few months of becoming a Christian. It hit me that I too can have peace, joy and purpose in life - just like my friend. After researching Christianity and other religions for a year, I came to the conclusion that Christianity was the irrefutable truth. Then one night I had a series of nightmares where I knew that God wanted to have a relationship with me and I in turn wanted it too. God and I became best friends. Bonus - my fear of death was addressed when I found out God gave me a free ticket to heaven!


After this life altering decision, I went through some tough times, such as the death of my mom and close friends, personal relationship struggles and infertility, but I grew through each journey. They've inspired many of my songs and writings.


In addition to my singing and speaking, I'm a wife, mom of one daughter and have worked for non-profit organizations helping the poor and those in need for over 20 years.


I love exploring new places, biking, eating tasty food including chocolate, be in, on or by the water and am in bliss when they all intersect.
