I exist to lavishly pursue God’s beauty and infuse this truth into the lives of women.

I do this through my speaking ministry, writing books and blogs and loving the women in my world.

I want them to know that God’s love for them is deep, passionate and extravagant.

I want them to know when they let this love flow like a waterfall into their souls they will sparkle with his radiant love.

I want then to know this love will compel them to live with of kindness, grace and justice.

I want them to know God values the feminine heart, that to be a woman of God means you can love flowers, shoes and sequins while simultaneously wielding a sword of truth with strength and courage.

I want them to know no matter how big their flaws, failures and shames, God’s love and power is always bigger. No matter what- they are his precious daughters.
