It has been awhile since I last blogged because I took some time to finish my masters degree. Since it's been awhile, I feel the need to re-introduce myself.
I have worked with young women for more than 10 years. These roles have included being a small group leader to working full-time at a church in student ministry to writing and speaking to young women. I have a heart for you because there is so much stuff that I wish I had learned when I was your age that would have saved me some heartache. My book is called "Body. Beauty. Boys. The Truth About Girls and How We See Ourselves." I really struggled with seeing myself for who I really was all throughout high school and college. I think this is a struggle that most women face their entire life. I wonder what would it be like if we began the process of seeing ourselves through God's eyes at a younger age? What difference would it make in your life and relationships? That is my passion and why I work with young women.
Currently, I write and create a student strategy and curriculum called XP3 by The reThink Group outside Atlanta, GA. I got life changing news back in September that I was going to have a baby! My husband, Scott, and I are so excited. I can't believe that I will be somebody's mom! We are having a little girl, and she is due to arrive May 27.
So that is a little snapshot of who I am and why I want to write to you.
