I am so excited you have found your way to my blog. Call to Beauty is very dear to my heart. Here I reveal the pretty, and the not so pretty, parts of me that have graciously been woven into something beautiful by the hand of God. I am so happy to be able to share what I have learned about living with peace, loving who you are, and doing what matters most.
Dear sister, I have struggled so much with loving the body I was given. I have spent so many years comparing what I do, and don’t have with others. I have wasted so many days fixated on who I thought I needed to be. Can you can relate? If so, my heart’s desire is that you will find peace for yours. There is a part of each of us that is drawn to the beautiful things in life. I want you to know and understand that beauty in yourself and your circumstances. I’m fighting for that beauty in my life all the time.
About a year ago, I started actively working in women’s ministry at my home church near Detroit. I love it! I feel called to love on and help women; especially in the area of body image. I hope to be a speaker or write my story in book form one day.
I am a wife and mother of one sweet nine year old boy. I love to bake. I ran a small baking business from my home for about 6 years. I love to decorate. The style of my home is what I like to call traditional-glam. My favorite room is one I transformed into a dressing room. It is so fun, and it makes me smile everyday. I love to sing. I sang classical and jazz music in high school and college, and now I get to use my voice to help lead worship at church every Sunday.
I eat a lot of vegan food because I am crazy about lentils, dates, nuts, and sweet potatoes. The color purple rocks, like a lot. Coffee and naps are amazing. Classic films are my go-to’s (Think Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn). New York is my most favorite place on earth.
I have a serious sweet tooth. I was born on a leap year (I’m 9 years old)! Helping out in my son’s class at school makes me really anxious. My hair is super curly and I spend way too much time at Ulta.
Above all else, I love Jesus and I desire to see His daughters walk in freedom, experience peace for their souls, and find the beauty in who they were created to be.
