In pursuit of a life of purpose, I left a life of comfort. I was full of faith, my fears tried to steal. Imperfect courage means going scared. Bravely showing up for yourself, for the people you love, and for strangers who may one day be friends... feel like family. 

Feeling scared?  (I'm a little scared) heart beating outta my chest, shaking knees...

Go anyway

Weave a story of compelling accounts across the globe. I am invited, you are invited!!! be free from doubt and embrace risk with honesty and wit. We grow stronger when we choose to be vulnerable... 

I know you're scared of the unknown 

You're not alone  

You are never alone.  

"You're a sunflower, " sings Post Malone

"What's up danger  "

Im afraid, yet I'll go afraid

Life is a journey  

walk in joy  ...

Mine started in stained glass churches, oh the beautiful truth I learned in those pews.. 

Now i sit in the sand at church on the beach, and I'm not trying to preach, but I found God there. Bright shining and glorious and I don't always agree or understand... But He helps me choose faith over fear. 

My life is a tapestry and all the things are becoming one thing .

I value the gift in me.  

My friend told me tears are a good sign that my heart is in a good, soft, safe place. And that this is my time to go higher, deeper..

New heights and levels of joy

The most real in this new year,  

This feels really raw.  Vulnerable

But here I stand,  an adult in this foreign land and I'm not alone, there's a community around me to encourage, serve, and come around.  In unity we are connected. 

In this place, I've found healing of my pain, forgiveness and restoration through overcoming. 

Imprefect Courage. 

My first spoken word, Slam poetry performed live at Teva in Manuel Antonio last Tuesday. I pulled pieces of my sketchbook and spoke them in the mic to a room full of friends and new faces that at the end of the night I formed a deeper connection with by sharing my heart.
