At midnight on August 1, 2004, my life changed forever. I suddenly found myself upside down in on a dark highway in the middle of nowhere. My family was in the van with me, and after being blindsided by a drunk driver and rolling repeatedly, my priorities were forever shifted. Fast forward a few years, and “Drop the Blanket” is an unexpected viral phenomenon and I find myself doing radio interviews and writing a book! My life has been a wild ride based in faith and trust in God, and I cherish every opportunity to share how His faithfulness has been so evident in my life and in lives all around me.
Writing stories and recording music is what I do, but the true joy of creating is meeting people and sharing these things in person. I am available to speak on many topics, lead in worship, and can tailor to your specific theme, event or audience. Through music, engaging speaking, personal testimony and interactive illustrations, my goal is simply to honor God and invite Him to leave a lasting impact during our time together. I am currently filling up my calendar for 2018, and ask that you would consider how I can partner with you in ministry. I invite you to contact me for booking through my contact page, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Drop the Blanket (facing fear)
Jesus was born into a world filled with fear. It was a world of oppression and uncertainty, much like our own. Yet the angels who appeared to the shepherds proclaimed, “Fear Not!”. Centering around Deuteronomy 31:6 and Luke 2:10-11, and drawing from personal experiences, we will take a closer look at how God replaces our fears with faith when we choose to trust in Him.
Stories and Songs
My greatest passion in life can generally be boiled down to a desire to strengthen and encourage believers. God has allowed me to do this through songs I have written, personal testimony of my life, the craziness of a homeschooling family, and sharing with others who are on the same path of trying to serve God in the midst of a hectic life. It is a joy to encourage groups through personal songs of worship and the stories and Scriptures that inspired them.
In reading through the Scriptures I have noticed a that practically everyone God calls to do His work is pretty much unqualified to do it. It seems that God has a tendency to call on people that we would never consider calling. David was the least of his family, Moses was slow of speech, Gideon was filled with fear, and Peter was an uneducated fisherman. What does God see that we don’t?
Pray Like Jesus
Prayer is our main line of communication with God, yet many of us still don’t feel like we know how to pray the way we think we should be praying. We can learn by asking, how did Jesus pray? In John 17 we can examine His longest recorded prayer, and also find the answers to many of our deepest questions, and discover life-changing truth.
