God has designed me to be sensitive to those who are struggling and their need to have people on their side. While shy, my heart fills with compassion towards those who are hurting. My family jokes that I am the first one crying while watching news or a telethon trying to find ways to support a new cause, but really I am grateful for the discernment and empathy God has created in who I am at my core. There is always hope through Christ!
Being from a military family, I grew up traveling all over. I’ve lived in various places, including Okinawa and the Marshall Islands but mostly on the Central Coast. We’ve instilled our love for travel in our kids with yearly road trips. They have been to 22 states so far, and we can’t wait to show them the rest of the USA and abroad!
