Spiritual Statement: I believe that God values each one of us as his beloved child and longs to grant us wholeness, freedom, insight, and joy in Christ. I believe that God has a life of purpose and meaning for each person and I love being able to journey alongside those who wish to heal and grow. I find so much encouragement in Romans 5:3-5, “we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts.”
