My Story

When I came to college I thought I had a good knowledge of the faith and who Jesus was. The thing I didn’t know was just that. It was when I got to college and met a FOCUS missionary that I got to know Jesus on a deeper level and realized what I was truly made for. I discovered that as a child of God we are made for a real relationship with the one who created us. Through a series of retreats, conferences, bible studies and much prayer I found my true identity as a beloved daughter of God, and that He wants nothing more than for me to live abundantly in this life and all of eternity with Him. As I got involved at my Newman Center at North Dakota State University (roll herd), I found true authentic friendships that showed me what it meant to love like Jesus. These friendships pushed me everyday to grow deeper in relationship with Christ and strive daily to live a life of excellence in the way Jesus calls us to. Now, I hope to do the same for anyone and everyone I encounter because we are all made for a greater love that you can’t get from anything this world has to offer. This greater love has a name, and his name is Jesus 🙂

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. This mission would not be possible if it wasn’t also for the “yes” of people like you who are willing to help make a difference on the college campus as well. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you!
