Chapter Leader / Southern Oregon Chapter
I am a writer, artist, and mother of two amazing boys. I live in Phoenix, Oregon with my husband Damon and two boys Caleb and Tobias. I’m a stay at home mom and enjoy homeschooling my five year and seven year old sons. I love pouring into the younger generation and was a youth leader for ten years. I am writing a young adult fantasy and desire to impact young adults through my work. One of my passions is to see the next generation walk in the fullness of who God has called them to be and know they can hear God’s voice for themselves. As I have embraced my imagination and know God uses it in so many ways to speak, I feel called to encourage others to do the same. I serve as a ministry team leader at Empowered Life Church and also lead small group studies.
The authors who inspired my writing are C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and J. K. Rowlings. My earliest stories began as a child when my mother and grandmother encouraged me to draw picture books and share the stories. Growing up I was always encouraged to use my imagination and tell stories. Now I am on a journey of writing my first novel and I want to encourage others to answer the call to write. To take up the mandate God has placed within them and write for the kingdom.
