The Basics

Thanks for all of the support on our launch day yesterday!  This is such an exciting time for me- my little baby has launched.  Welcome to my long awaited, official blog,

Yesterday I shared with you some of my heart behind this, the fear and the expectation and the excitement.  Today I just want to say thank you.  Thank you to those of you who have believed in my and encouraged me and pushed me to pursue my writing.  Thank you for giving me the support that I have needed to believe in myself.  Thanks for being at the other end of my rope, calling me higher.

I also wanted to take today to share with you the logistics on this blog. What you can expect from me, and what kind of things you’re going to find here.

Why I’m here

I’m here because I love to write and I love the Gospel, and this is my way to share it.  I’ve always love to write, but I haven’t always believed that I could be a writer.  But God has called me out of my fear, and into risk- so here I am.  I’m here because Jesus has called me to write.

What you can expect from me

You can expect me to write about things that matter, things that make my heart cry, “yes!” and things that break my heart and things that make me think and make me believe truer things.  I promise to be genuine, real, and honest.  I promise to lay it all out there, just like it is.  Raw, real, and open.  I promise to not pretend that I have all of my sh*t together, because I most certainly don’t.  I want to talk about real things and start conversations that matter, that grow us closer to Jesus.  I will post regularly, but never at the expense of genuine words.  I can assure you that you will never find words written here that don’t come from my heart.

What you will find here

I will write about the things that I am passionate about, not just in my own life, but the ideas and beliefs and truths that are worthy of taking precedent in all of our lives.

  • The Gospel & living a life with Jesus
  • the mountains & living a life of adventure
  • navigating through college & (soon to be) life after
  • being a mentor, a teacher, & a Young Life leader

Apart from my writing, I’ve included some book recommendations and resources that I hope will help and encourage you in your walk with Jesus, and resources that will help plan content for Young Life club talks and campaigners studies.  My ministry is a huge part of my life, and I know is also a huge part of some of your lives, so I want to share that with you.


If you haven’t already, feel free to explore the blog.  If you’re unfamiliar with Young Life, or Wilderness, or even with me– read a little bit.  This is a brand new project, and there is lots of learning for me to do.  Leave a comment, send me an email– let me know what you think.  Want to read about something in particular?  Let me know- I’d love to write about it.


Thanks for joining me.  Next week will kick off on Monday with the blog’s first content post and giveaway!  Stay tuned.
