Where I serve

I am blessed to serve at the Benedictine College down in Kansas. On a daily basis, you can find me reading amongst the trees or playing music with my friends just about anywhere! The Lord is MOVING, both in my heart and the hearts of all those around me. Oh to praise Him, on the mountains and in the valleys. All glory to Him!

Here is my wonderful team after the first vows of a dear friend!

My Story

The deepest desire of my heart is to know Christ Jesus and His love, and to bring His love to all those I encounter. Truly, that is the deepest desire of everyone’s heart, whether they know it or not. John 17:3 tells us “now this is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” This truth has been burning inside me since I was little, but coming to college, I thought otherwise. 

I began putting my identity in my grades, what I accomplished, and how “put together” I was, which was incredibly isolating and unfulfilling. I believed I was the sum of what I could do, rather than who I was at the core, claimed from the beginning of time as a Beloved Daughter of God. God revealed this truth once again to my heart through my FOCUS missionary, and my life was forever changed for the better.

Ultimately, I pray this truth is imprinted on every young woman I encounter: that she is good, simply because she exists. That in a world of loneliness, she is not alone. That she is loved, by a good Father, and her life has meaning. 

Your Impact

In order to meet students where they are at, I have the privilege of inviting others in this mission alongside me! I absolutely cannot do this alone. It is only because of the spiritual and financial support generous of mission partners that God is able to reach souls through my mission on the college campus!

If you are interested in learning more about how to join me on mission, or want more information on campus ministry/what that looks like, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via phone or email:) I’d be so honored to share this mission with you.
