Welcome, friend! Thanks for stopping in!

Do you sometimes feel stuck? Overwhelmed with regret? Good news: one simple step will empower you to think more clearly and take back your heart and home. That one act: forgive yourself. 

Don’t you love the freedoms found in God’s reckless acts of forgiveness? Together, let’s discover purpose on our journeys as we celebrate our identities in Christ, release Holy Spirit joy, and find possibilities in the most unlikely places.

It’s time to get strengthened and equipped and to embrace yourself with heartfelt grace.
