nice to meet you!
I've been a writer for the better part of my life. I can trace my love for the power of words all the way back to grade school when I began writing little fiction stories...and continuing on to high school and college when I did the whole yearbook thing. After college, I began the adventure of being a corporate writer specializing in speeches and executive communications.
All that to say, I've been writing for a long time. While I've had amazing work assignments and have collaborated with awesome men and women in the marketplace, some of my most passionate writing started in late 2010. That's when I launched the "Narrow Gate Nuggets" blog and began sharing from the depths of my Jesus-filled heart and soul. The Narrow Gate Nuggets eventually morphed into what is now then deliberate book, which I self-published in 2017.
Everything I write about in deliberate is based on inspiration and lessons learned during an overwhelming season of my corporate career. During that time, God turned my overwhelm into something positive and ignited my passion to break the pattern of busyness that's so prevalent in our culture today. Ultimately, I decided to share my experiences in hopes of helping others do the same. I don't have it all figured out, so I am on the journey with you. I like to say that the deliberate life is a process, not a perfect.
As a recovering perfectionist, I'm learning to refocus on what matters, release what doesn’t, and find
restoration in the only thing that truly satisfies: doing life with Jesus. In my spare time, I love hanging out with my closest deliberate tribe members: my amazing husband Jay and our awesome golden retriever.
For what it's worth: I don't do well at sitting still. I love the snow. I love being out on the ocean. I have a healthy weakness for organic green drinks. I dig Orange Theory workouts. I crave the mountains. And I am completely stoked when I get to explore both new and familiar places.
