“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.”

John 15:16

Where I serve

Belmont Abbey College, North Carolina!!

My Story

I grew up in a little town called Welsh in southwest Louisiana. As a child, I was raised Catholic; however, I struggled to have a personal relationship with Our Lord. After graduating high school and moving to college, I was eager to get involved. Despite my best efforts to immerse myself in all the worldly things college has to offer, I found myself feeling lonely and unseen.

In my search for a community and a group of friends, I attended a candlelight Mass at my school’s Newman Center. After the Mass, I was invited to attend a retreat with this group and decided to go. At this retreat, I was able to come into direct contact with Our Lord through Eucharistic Adoration. For the first time in my life, I saw Jesus and knew that I was deeply loved by Him, and nothing else mattered.

Despite this transformative experience, I continued to struggle to find a good, faithful community. In the summer of 2023, I decided to go on Summer Projects in Big Sky, Montana. There, I encountered an amazing group of women who helped me grow into a deeper relationship with Our Lord. These women loved me so well and taught me what it means to be a beloved daughter of Christ, showing me that I am not alone in my struggles.

After experiencing this profound love and support, I knew I wanted to share this love with other women.

Your Impact

Being on mission full-time allows me the freedom to invest deeply in these women and be radically available to them. This opportunity would not be possible without the generosity of those who financially support this mission. I believe everyone needs to encounter Jesus in a personal, life-changing way, but not everyone has the opportunity to do so. That’s why I felt compelled to answer the Lord’s invitation to do His work full-time. By partnering with me, we can help fulfill the Father’s desire to be in union with His children for eternity. It would be an honor to partner with you!
