After falling in love with the elegance in the details of calligraphy two years ago, I began to find connection to God by practicing writing out Scripture verses, knowing that God’s word never comes back void (Isaiah 55:11). Quickly, I began to wonder if God might use this hobby of mine for something more. I prayed that if it were so, He would open the doors to get me on the right path.
While attending Passion Conference 2022, a major focus was shedding light on how many people are still unreached by the Gospel and are living in "Bible poverty." 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us, “All Scripture is breathed out of God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” God’s Word is alive and active and brings everlasting value to our lives (1 Peter 1:25).
In the U.S., we’re incredibly privileged to have easy access to the Bible. They’re in almost every book store, given out at most churches, and provided in the side tables of every hotel room. Many American Christians have several Bibles in multiple translations, but this is not the case for over 1 billion people worldwide. 3,707 languages are still in need of translation and it will take great work to make this happen. As Jesus’ followers rallying together to support this mission, everyone can have access to Scripture by 2033. This is attainable!

Friends, I am so excited to see how God will move through this business and I pray that you’ll join me in this pursuit! Let’s do this!
A heart changed by HIM...
As a small town, midwest girl, I’ve grown to appreciate the small moments: reading, trying new food, playing the guitar, and spending hours deepening friendships through real conversations. I spend my days walking around my college campus on sunny days, occasionally stopping to grab an iced coffee between classes or on the way to Bible study. Though I’m a natural introvert, getting to know people is a joy of mine whether it’s here in my hometown, or when my mom and I are visiting my sister and brother-in-law in Southern California (and since the sun is there, maybe I’ll move there one day too)! We’re a pretty tight family! I believe in taking life slowly, daring to be different, and laughing as much as possible.
I’ve learned through my faith that where I am weak, the Lord is strong, and He’s made me with immense purpose - and you too, friend! My hope is that whatever I do in life, I can show others the love and grace He’s shown me!
