“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.”

Isaiah 43:1

Where I serve

The Lord has blessed me well in my time as a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln! He has shown me His love and mercy through the little things, whether it be praying with people, rock climbing, or baking some yummy pie for my bible study girls. It’s an honor I can share that same love on campus at Kansas State University in my first year on mission! I can’t wait to see what the Lord does for me, my team, and the students I encounter… Go Cats!

My Story

“A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will take out of your flesh the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” ~ Ezekiel 36:26

I grew up a true Cornhusker, loving the corn fields of Nebraska! Born and raised in a Catholic household, we did all the things: mass on Sunday, praying before meals, etc. In this fallen world, though, I began to be driven by success and perfectionism, attempting to cover up the broken and imperfect areas of my heart. I didn’t believe God wanted to encounter me in the places I felt so desolate. Sainthood didn’t seem possible.

I believed the lie I had to fix myself on my own.

I yearned for authenticity coming into college, all the while busying myself with scholarships, extracurriculars, and the approval of everyone around me, but the Lord. I sought to make my own identity worthy of praise in the lens of the world. Then, one day, a FOCUS missionary reached out to me, showing me the heart of the Gospel. I started to encounter the person of Jesus Christ: My Savior, Healer, and Redeemer. He has healed and conformed areas of my heart to His Sacred Heart I never thought possible.

My story is a story of redemption, and I am firm in the truth that redemption is for each one of us. There is never a better time to cultivate sainthood in the Church!
