NEW EVERY MORNING

There's a beautiful verse in scripture that says, "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness," (Lamentations 3:22-33 ESV).

As someone who lives daily in the flickering shadows of bipolar II disorder, this verse really resonates with me. First, because the constant changes in my brain make me feel like a different person on a weekly basis - a far cry from feeling steadfast or faithful. But more importantly, because I have come to cherish and depend upon God's mercies, his loving compassion, to daily lift me out of the darkness of my mistakes and my irrational decisions, placing my feet back on solid ground and renewing my hope.

I'm a beloved daughter and friend of Jesus. I was born and raised by my Canadian parents in Ithaca, New York, where I discovered the Lindy Hop and Charleston at age 17, began teaching and traveling as a dance instructor soon after, and earned my B.A. in English from Cornell University. In the whirlwind that followed, I taught in over 40 cities in the U.S. and abroad, lived in six different time zones, dropped out of seminary but earned my M.S. in Education from Nazareth College, and eventually settled here in Aurora, Colorado. These days, my passion is for making an impact through nonprofit ministry and homeschooling our two exuberant daughters. 

 

OUTREACH

I have a tendency to fall in love with every hope-infused cause that crosses my path. The origin stories of these ministries are usually born out of seasons of deep suffering, and yet they grow into something that is both impactful and inspiring. Here are a few of my favorite connections that I'd love to share with you.
