It is always nice to know more about the person behind the scenes, so let me share a bit about myself with you. If you are like me, you’ll hesitate to trust a person you don’t know very well, even if you like them the minute you say hello. That’s what happens when you’ve hit more than a few disappointing bumps in the road, and learn to hold your cards close to your chest for mere survival. You’ll soon learn that I am a straight-talker and down-to-earth gal who insists on living a real and transparent life with everyone.
Having spent the last 16 years living at a boarding school, I’ve experienced the intricate workings of the young female heart and mind, along with the intense effects of the culture. My heart pounds for the next generation as much as I am crazy about serving women.
From every angle, I am passionate about today’s women being equipped with the Word so they can impact the next generation with relevant truth.
God has opened the doors for me to live out this passion through serving as the Founder of More to Be as well as in offering Life Coaching services for women. As time allows, I count it a privilege to speak at women’s events and retreats and always look forward to the monthly ETC gatherings of of teenage girls in my home. My philosophy about mentoring is captured in Impact My Life: Biblical Mentoring Simplified, a book designed to equip women to step into significant mentoring relationships. I also contribute to Internet Cafe Devotions, MODsquad, The Better Mom, and FaithLifeWomen. I am equally honored to be a part of the planning committee for Raising Generations Today, a conference for moms that will be upheld in upstate New York, March 20-21, 2013.
All of what I do stems from a gratitude for what God has accomplished in my life. Coming from a family nearly destroyed by a legacy of emotional and physical abuse, I am the first generation in my line to humbly proclaim that the inheritance of destruction ends here. I’d love to take the credit, but this act is entirely due to God’s grace and the working of His mighty power in my life. In spite of not growing up in a Christian home, and spending many years in rebellion, I came to know Jesus Christ as my personal Savior in the late fall of 1993. Ever since, the Lord has been in the process of transforming me from the outside in and inside out.
Each moment of each day belongs to the Lord, and I simply attempt to be emotionally present and eternally purposed, especially with my husband, Stephen, and children.
More to Be is a natural outflow of my passion for Jesus, for you, and for the next generation. I pray that this website will become a rich source of encouragement as you meet God personally through His Word and by the working of His Spirit, making you more like Jesus every passing day!
By His Grace,
