About Me

I'm a nurse, married to the funniest man in the world, momma to three sweet little wonderfuls and a giant golden retriever puppy.  My home is filled with noise, chaos and love. 

 

I believe in Jesus as my Lord and Savior.  I believe God is the hope that can transform us mind, body, heart and soul.  On paper my life sounds absolutely perfect, but what you can't see behind this picture is that I struggle with depression. 

 

For the last 7 years I have fought the ugly fight with Major Depressive Disorder.  I am far from perfect and I most certainly do NOT have all the answers.  But I do think God has given me some tools to help me cope with my depression and feel well. 

 

I want to share my journey with you in hopes that it might help just one person find the encouragement they need to keep pressing on, to fight the good fight and know that they can have good days ahead.  Depression does NOT define me but it is a part of my story and I want to help shine God's light into the depths of the darkness that depression is. 

 

I am public speaker and blogger and I hope to use my God given voice to help others who are struggling and to help erase the stigma about mental illness.

I am a graduate of Biola University with by Bachelor's of Science in Nursing.  While at Biola I majored in Nursing and Minored in Biblical Studies.  I have worked as a nurse in the hospital setting for the last 14 years.
