The first thing you should know is I love Jesus. Secondly, I consider myself an equal-opportunity Jesus follower. This means I believe in the love and equal rights for everyone because Jesus does. And even if you don’t believe in God or you believe Jesus is a whackjob or (that I’m a whackjob for following Him), that’s okay. You’re loved anyway, and I am not here to convert you.
I have two children, a husband, a cat and a dog. My son has an incredible mind for history and science, wants to work as a lunar mission specialist for NASA, and has ADHD. My daughter is a musician, artist, an intuitive lover of people who are hurting and alone and she struggles with anxiety and major depressive disorder. I am a writer, speaker and advocate and also struggle with anxiety and have been in anorexia recovery since November of 2014. My husband is quietly generous, fiercely loyal, and 90% introvert with an intense enthusiasm for sports (mainly college football).
When I am not physically and emotionally managing our household I am in the community and on the internet advocating for anti-diet body positivity and anti-stigma mental health awareness with Jesus and his love as the center of all my goals.
I define myself in this space as a writer who writes about intuitive eating, body trust, and self-love for Christian women who struggle with negative body image, food guilt, and their inability to “get healthy” no matter how many diets they’ve tried–even the biblically- based ones.
