My Story

Thank you for visiting Beauty from Brokenness; I’m so happy that you’re here. I’m a Jesus Follower, Wifey, Gen Z Small Group Leader, Counselor Wannabe and Mama to a charming baby boy named Leyton. It took me 13 years to comprehend what “following” Jesus meant after making the decision to believe, and my hope is for you to get there faster than I did.

I’m a firm believer that a relationship with God is our sole purpose in life and that He will use whatever means necessary to draw us into a loving embrace, even if it means bringing down the hammer. I’m the sledge-hammer case and if you haven’t guessed it already, Jesus is the Beauty; I am the brokenness.

Truly happy people are those who carefully study God’s perfect law that makes people FREE. -James 1:25

If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; The old life is gone; a new life has begun! -2 Corinthians 5:17

The butterfly has always been representative to me of my departure from the old and ugly life I used to live. I am still very much a work in progress but it feels so much better to have wings than to be crawling…Check out my butterfly stories here.

Beauty from Brokenness is a collaboration of the things I’m learning from God, who is both the originator of all hope and the very essence of love. I would love to hear your thoughts and am always open to collaboration when it comes to the mentoring of or speaking to teenagers and young adults.
