Welcome, Kindred Spirit! I’m so happy you’ve found me here!

I’m a 20-something Midwestern girl, and I love the Lord with all my heart, first and foremost. My aspiration every single day is to love the way He loves, and to reflect His spirit through my words and actions. I grew up in Indiana, and studied opera at Bethel College, and my hope is to obtain a Masters of Music in the future. Singing is my main passion and I’ve loved spending the past year discovering new music and finding new opportunities to perform. I’ve found, though, that I have many passions that drive me…including writing {of course}, children & families, mental & emotional health, choreography, and pretty much anything involved with the performing arts. I love using ALL of these passions as my platform to minister to others and display the love of God.

I am a new wife to John-David {08.05.17} and I love planning my future and doing life with him <3 You may even see a “guest post” from him every so often. By the grace of God we grown stronger and closer together with each passing day.

I believe in being REAL…in being GENUINE…I believe that when sharing your heart, you should not hold back. Someone may need to hear your story. God CAN USE your stories, your struggles, your suffering, to bless someone else.

My mission is to walk with others in their faith, advocate their transparency, and encourage them to become who God has created them to be.

And that’s what I hope to do here with this blog.

Remember that “Kindred Spirits” aren’t a scarce as you may think {so says my beloved literary friend, Anne Shirley}. We all have a story to share, and we all have someone with whom we can identify.

I hope you’ll find a Kindred Spirit in me.

A Few Random Things…

I am an ENFP…an extrovert who still has introverted tendencies {Translation: I thrive the most off of being with people, but I am very introspective and still enjoy my alone time}. I am trained in ballet and contemporary dance, and still take classes to stay in shape. Sacred music and opera are my favorite things to sing. I am highly inspired by beautiful literary characters such as Anne Shirley, Jo March, and Elizabeth Benet. I also love Jane Austen and Downton Abbey. I drink coffee like Lorelai Gilmore. Movie musicals are life {can we say La La Land, and The Greatest Showman?}. I’m attracted, like a moth to a flame, to anything lace or floral. I am deeply moved by beautiful music.
