After working in advertising for three years, I jumped on the opportunity to work for Watermark and use my passions for his ministry. In my free time, you can probably find me playing with my dogs Oliver and Jett, trying new restaurants, or cooking with my fiancé, Sam.
I grew up going to church but didn’t know what it looked like to have a relationship with Christ. I believed that I could do everything through my own strength but struggled with immense amounts of anxiety, depression, and several other health issues. Then in college, I hit rock bottom. After trying everything the world told me to do to “fix” myself, I realized there was no worldly solution. I saw the change my friend experienced through Re:Generation and wanted that for myself. I went through the 12 steps and became committed to following Jesus. I came out the other side a different person, dependent on and in relationship with the Lord, learning that his yoke is easy (Matthew 11:28) and that he restores my soul (Psalm 23:1).
Now, it is sweet to reflect on how the Lord used several college girls to pursue me the entire time I was at SMU, even while I was not pursuing Him. While I still struggle with anxiety, I know that the Lord is trustworthy and that I am not dependent on my own understanding of the world nor my ability to control it (Proverbs 3:5-6). He cares for us more than we can possibly understand and gives us far more than we deserve. I hope you get to know Him!
