this is me

I am a broken sinner saved by the blood of Jesus; in constant and desperate need of my Savior’s ever-flowing and never-changing grace; a woman who’s learning to give God the glory each step of the way.

I grew up in a small town with no stoplights in the heart of the Sunflower State, which taught me to delight in simple things. In 2016, a God-fearing man became my husband and I received the wonderful gift and responsibility of being a wife. We lived in the Kansas City area for five years where I spent my days at an early childhood education center as a Director; challenging me every day to uplift God’s little children. During those five years, my husband and I also volunteered as Youth Ministry Leaders for the high schoolers at the church we attended and are forever grateful for the relationships we built. However, in late 2021, we made the prayerful decision to move back to my hometown to be closer to our families and to once again embrace small-town living.

My life thus far has been woven with joy, heartache, peace, sorrow, love, loss, and everything in-between. My walk with the Lord – both the struggle and the triumph – points to His sovereignty and faithfulness. I share not to bring attention to myself but to point readers to biblical truth and the redemptive freedom that can only be found Jesus.

God gave me a passion for writing that began in childhood and continues to grow stronger each day. I pray that the Lord uses Words of a Wife Redeemed to bless and encourage anyone who may read it, that it will speak to others in such a way that Jesus shines through each typed line.
