For some crazy reason, I can never get enough of trying new things. Being a math major in college, the thought of writing as a hobby simply never occurred to me, however I always did enjoy reading. One day I decided to pick up my smartphone and start typing. A year later, out came a Christian young adult action/suspense trilogy! I have enjoyed every step of the journey, though I've now reached the greatest challenge yet . . . somehow managing to get it published!

Who knows what will happen in the end, though I've dedicated this project to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and if I ever see any profits from it, I want to donate them all to help children in the foster care system and our veterans since this was the theme and inspiration behind the work.

In writing the three books, I sought to create an exciting, realistic storyline while bringing to light many real world issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and PTSD. The ultimate theme running throughout is though we are all broken, we can also be healed and made new in Christ.

Fitness has been my passion ever since I can remember. As a little girl, I dreamed of being an Olympic gymnast. I still remember flipping my little toy plastic sliding board on its side to do pretend balance beam performances in my living room and trying to do back flips off my bed. When I was eight years old, that dream was shattered. I was diagnosed with a rare childhood inflammatory condition that would often flare up in extreme bouts of agony. I was restricted from doing any rigorous activity with my upper body until I was sixteen. Exploring multiple realms of fitness from distance running to weight lifting, I was determined to become someone better, way too hard on myself when I didn't perform or look the way I wanted. At one point as a teenager, I was severely underweight and anorexic, and I struggled with self image and balance in fitness for many years after.

I could never be grateful enough for God, family, friends, and the wonderful CrossFit community that I became a part of four years ago for helping me see what true fitness is all about. I used to worry about what I looked like and sought a level of perfection I could never attain. Now I see that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and my sole focus on fitness is to be healthy and treat my body well. I don't worry about what I look like because I now honor and respect my body as a gift from God. My favorite saying now is I no longer work out so I can eat. I eat to fuel and energize my body so I can reach my full potential.

We all struggle with something in our lives, though we often hide our true self behind a smile or a busy lifestyle. After several life changing events, God has showed me that it's time to step outside my comfort zone and reach out to others. Having been in the deepest depths of depression and anxiety myself, I am a living testimony that Christ alone offers true healing from the dark side of the mind. I hope my future posts will reach out to others who feel lost and inspire them that it's never too late and you're never too far gone.
