Founder. Speaker. Consultant.
Loving Christ has finally taught me how to love myself and others with greater authenticity, freedom, and joy.
He has shown me that He loves me from within the messiness and imperfection of my life, and that growing in holiness is all about becoming my True Self in Him.
