My Life (Such As It Is)

I believe God can help each of us to " arise" in life! My passion has been toward encouraging and empowering others to come to a personal relationship with Christ and live free from the damage of their life experiences. My book, "Thin Enough: My Spiritual Journey Through the Living Death of an Eating Disorder" is a personal journey from “glory to glory” (2 Corinthians 3:18) and a spiritual war cry to rise in Christ, no matter what disorder, obstacle or argument tries to come against them.
