Allow me to give you the insider scoop on why I'm here and why I'm so passionate about healing from burn-out!
I’ve said this phrase multiple times a day for years. This has been my mantra. My life consisted of endless Zoom, ministry meetings and multiple projects to complete. Where was the fun? Where was my joy? God reminded me I was saying yes to too much, and something had to change.
I’ve said “yes” too much, instead of saying no. I told myself the need was great. I didn’t want to let God, others or myself down. I thought saying “yes” to more would draw me closer to God; it actually drew me further from Him.
This is why I show up everyday!
Instead of saying yes to everything, God reminded me that more is not better.
By scaling back with purposeful intention, and saying no to what was draining me, I was able to recover from burnout.
I have a Master of Divinity degree from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I’m grateful to be a contributing writer for several online Christian publications including Beloved Women, BibleStudyTools, iBelieve and YouVersion. Additionally, I’ve also been featured on the Rooted and Overflowing and The Path podcasts. I've been happily married for 14 years and have one daughter.
I love traveling to different cities and experiencing their unique culture. I’ve lived in 5 different states, and have loved learning the unique style of each region.
I love trying new and different types of food at restaurants. Thai, Italian, and Indian foods are my favorites!
I love a great game night with family or friends! I love playing Taboo, Scattergories, CatchPhrase, and Uno!
This book is such a useful tool as I position myself for peace daily. It touches on topics that consistently speak to my soul.
Merciful Moments is a great devotional for starting your day (or ending it) with a focus on the grace and mercy of God.
