My Prayer for You
I pray with all of my heart that you would encounter the Father’s heart for you through RECESS. It exists for His glory and yours, too, in Him. I know this journey will challenge you at times. I know there will be moments of conviction. I know it will require endurance and faith. But with that, I am confident that you will find God, and that makes it all worth it. May this book serve to feed all of His daughters who are hungry for more of Him. May it reveal His kingdom in and through you. Beyond that, may our lives bring Him glory forever and ever. We love You, God. We do this all for You! Amen.

I am the author of RECESS: Seek, Encounter, Know. I’m a wife, an artist, writer and musician. If there's one thing you can say about me, it's that I am passionate. And when it comes to helping people walk fully and freely in the love of God, I am definitely that ;)
From a young age, I remember feeling like there had to be more. Aliens, monsters, fairies, you name it... It took some growing up to realize that the longing for the supernatural found its root in Jesus. (Growing up in the Bible Belt, I had a mixed experience when it came to Christianity and the church.) One thing I knew for sure, though, was that there was something about Jesus I couldn't quite shake. Watching my mom’s faith and my dad’s salvation before his passing marked me enough that when I went off to college, I knew I wanted to know this God more.
I got involved in a Christian ministry that impacted my life greatly. It was the first time I experienced genuine mentorship and community, learned how to read and study the Bible, got involved leading worship. I began experiencing freedom in different areas of my life where I had felt lost and enslaved previously: eating disorder, perfectionism, vanity, fear, control, the list goes on. My final year of college was where things really took off for me in my relationship with God. I had an encounter with Him, which I write about in the preface of the RECESS Book, that shifted my entire Christian paradigm, and launched me into a three year journey of exploring the person and presence of God. (More on that in the book!)
After college, I moved overseas to a tiny city in Greece. This was one of the most transformative years of my entire life. I call it my personal “recess” with the Lord because every day I spent hours with Him in prayer and worship. I couldn't get enough! It was in this season that He taught me how to seek and find Him. Little did I know that the things He was depositing in me then would eventually become what we now call RECESS Women.
In 2013, I moved back to the states and married my high school sweetheart, Eric, and we moved to Colorado, which is where RECESS Women first began. I had no intention of it being anything more than a summer Bible study, but God had other plans. From 2014-2019, I had the incredible honor of leading RECESS Women and learning how to teach and bring others into the things He first taught me. And though I humbly confess that there are “others before me [who] have gone much farther into these holy mysteries than I have done, but if my fire is not large, it is yet real, and [I pray] there may be those who can light their candle at its flame” (Tozer, The Pursuit of God). Amen!
