"dream great dreams and find the courage to live them"

-erwin mcmanus

about me.

My heart belongs to hurting teens, particularly young women.  With all of my heart, I desire to help them through the restoration process.
I have a thing for urbanity.  I don't know exactly why or how this came about, but when I think about the problems and issues in the city, something inside me jumps.  I want to somehow be involved with organizations in a city that serve the underprivileged.  To live in community with those who come from different stories than I.  To be in such a place of diversity forces the mind to expand, forces you out of your comfort zone so to better relate to, and thus minister to, the people with whom you interact.  I love this.

And then there's this idea somewhere that someday I will have a family.  Someday soon, I hope.

Until then, I live moment by moment.  Using each one the best that I can, wherever I am, so to glorify God and to love Him with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my strength.

For now, I live in Saint Louis, Missouri and work as a weekend residential assistant at Mercy Ministries (disclaimer:  my posts are not meant reflect the beliefs and opinions of the ministry).

These women are broken (as are we all, right?).
They desperately need Jesus, and so do I.

I am here to be used by God.
