The story of Jesus meeting the woman at the well is the part of the Bible that resonates the most deeply with me and my own life. Jesus SEES her, right where she is, and loves her so much that she is restored and forever changed, propelling her to tell everyone she meets about this Jesus.
I am that woman.
I grew up in a Christian home and knew about Jesus, but I experienced a brokenness that was out of my control. This led to me living a double life and one that was at-risk from my teenage years well in to my 20’s. I am acquainted with struggles, poor choices, hurt and pain caused by people in and out of the church and, consequently, I walked away from the Lord and His best. I have seen both sides of the road and know that the road with Jesus is the one to be on. Through this, He has called me to offer the same hope, healing and restoration that I have been given. Whatever I had needed as a youth, that is what He has called me to be.
I have a heart and passion to see young people come to know this love that the Lord freely gives and to walk in the freedom He offers to everyone. I am called to be part of His hands and feet on earth by mentoring and coming alongside the youth of this generation, and by loving them as He does, helping them understand their worth, value and identity in Him.
