My Story

I grew up in small-town Nebraska. Then I moved to the University of Nebraska – Lincoln for my undergraduate degree in Business Management.

I joined Greek life, lived out of immature freedom, and experienced a bunch of college stereotypes.

Then everything changed when a FOCUS missionary named Ben invited me out for lunch and introduced me to true freedom.

He showed me that there’s more to life when we’re not dependent on instant gratification for every decision. Instead, life is more fulfilling when we develop virtues and the ability to choose the right action.

He challenged me to stop numbing out life with social media and college culture and instead turn to God.

I was scared that if I surrendered to God, I’d never have fun again. So I went to the chapel and prayed through some tears,

“God, I don’t believe that this whole Jesus-thing is worth it. But I want more from life.”

I wish I could say that I immediately placed God at the center of my life, but it took some more nudging. Thankfully, I had someone to walk me through the journey.

He showed me how to:

    • – Pray with Scripture
    • – Replace vice with virtue, and
    • – Teach others to do the same

 

All the blessings in my life have come from God, so I decided to become a FOCUS missionary. I want to show others how to live life more abundantly, just like someone did for me.

“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.” -Saint John Paul II
