I believe in keeping Jesus first. Making our home in Him yields eternal fruit that lasts, unceasingly molds our character, and assures our ability to do what He wills.
I believe in walking by faith, not by sight. It pleases God, glorifies Him, and allows us to dive headfirst into what He calls us to do.
I believe in dying to self, because when we do, love, flexibility, and going the extra mile comes far more naturally.
I believe in the power of words, that they give life and death, and must be handled with care whether spoken over others or oneself.
I believe in gratitude and the value of finding contentment in every season. While abundance is an easy place for praise, seasons of hardship, suffering, or lack carry their own treasures which are often the most valuable.
I believe in sitting with the broken. Hearing, holding, and loving others when no one is watching, carries far more weight in heaven than any public accolade.
I believe in boundaries; letting the good in and keeping the bad out. We commit ourselves to staying aware of what and who is in our environment and do our best to offer no access to the enemy.
I trust in God’s provision and assignments; never allowing finances to keep us from going where He has called us, nor allowing finances to take us where we shouldn’t go.
I strive for excellence in all I do; believing my best should always be offered to God and those I'm called to serve.
I believe in doing all things in love and commit to checking my motives on a daily basis to be sure they align with the faith I profess and the heart of Christ.
I believe in being teachable; remaining open to growth and any lesson God offers.
I believe God is good, so we’re required to dream big.
I believe nothing is impossible, so a huge part of our life is designed around taking risk.
I believe everything we’ll ever need was dealt with at the cross, so we must come to a place of trusting Him in everything.
As a follower of Jesus, I believe that we are each a work in progress, being sanctified by the Word of God and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Understanding we have not yet (nor may ever), obtain perfection or consistently uphold these goals, we press on (Phil. 3:12) accepting the grace offered to us and offering grace to others in return.
Together, through both word and deed, I purpose to live as tangible evidence of the power of Christ... all to the glory of God.
