My life has often been too complicated. It’s still messy and beautiful but in this season I’m working to simplify. I am blessed to be married to a brilliant photographer. I’m raising two boys age 8 and 12. My daughter, Ciara and step-daughter Kira are beautiful grown women finding their way in the world on the left coast.

Sean, Cooper, Asher and I make our home with our church, Elevation in Charlotte, North Carolina. As a former journalist at CBS-affiliated stations in Charlotte and Houston, and the ABC affiliate in Spokane, Washington – I always loved to write – but have found it challenging in recent days to indulge my first passion for all my current ones.

As Elevation’s Outreach Director, God’s been stacking gifts in my life so I can bring him glory. In this, and in learning to live and love and parent better, I’m finding great joy. In 2013, God taught me a great deal about UNITY. In 2014, we focused on GENEROSITY and I still feel like I have so much to learn. In 2015 we focused on finding our CONFIDENCE in Christ. This year, our focus word is BOLD. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
