People often ask me if I like what I do.  I don’t.  I LOVE what I do!  My husband I own 2 summer camps in Brevard, NC, so for almost 30 years we’ve had the incredible privilege of impacting the lives of thousands of children and young adults.  I am passionate about bringing the Gospel to life in a way that helps people encounter Jesus.  So many in the Church know ABOUT Him, but they have never had an encounter with the living God that has changed the course of their lives. Ephesians 1:18 says, “May the eyes of our hearts be flooded with light that we may know the hope to which we are called in Christ Jesus.”  Through retreats, parish missions and various talks to adult and young adult groups in the US and abroad, I love helping to introduce God’s people to the Heart of their Father.

What do I like to speak on?  Anything that wakes up sleeping disciples in the pews!  Through Scripture, personal stories and music, I want to not just light a match but ignite a fire of the Holy Spirit in every heart.  To awaken people to their identity in Christ so they can grow in intimate friendship with Our Lord, and walk in the authority we’ve each been given as Baptized Catholics, and all believers in the body of Christ.  As Catherine of Siena said, “Be who you were meant to be and you will set the world on fire.”  What would change in our world, in our families, if every believer lived as if that truth was true!?

We live in a world that is battered by secularism and a complete disdain for the things of God. Our culture  needs vibrant believers who know who they are in Christ and are living witnesses to the words and the power of the Gospel.  My deepest desire is to be part of the wake up call, because Jesus is wanting to wake up every heart to really know Him, and to become so filled with His Presence, His very Spirit, that like the apostles, people recognize that we “have been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13)
