let’s grow together

Growing things can be really hard.

Especially when the thing you’re hoping to grow… is you. What if someone could send you a weekly dose of encouragement that kept you asking yourself the right questions that help you keep moving forward in life, with faith? That’s exactly what I like to do, every week.

Sign up below for my weekly email, and week after week I’ll encourage you with a funny story, a simple thought, and a powerful Scripture, each chosen to make you smile, take a deep breath, and maybe take one step closer to Jesus.

I hope you’ll join me on the journey. I’m glad you’re here.
