Before I even begin to tell you about Intertwined, I have to admit that I don't even feel worthy to write this post. I don't feel "good enough" to tell you all about what I've been working on lately. It scares me half to death to put this out into the world, because who am I? The enemy of our souls brought up so many ugly, un-Christlike parts of me this morning and for a while, I succumbed to it all. But I remembered who I am. All of those things, all of the ugly, all of the mistakes, all of the pride, insecurity, hurt, fear, anxiety and sin...all of it is true. BUT God. But God, so rich in mercy, because of His great love called me out of darkness into His light. I am His. Period. Yes, I am a messed up human being, made of dust and ashes, BUT GOD has redeemed me. I am nothing but a sinner saved by grace, and that is why I can share of what He has done today. It has nothing to do with my merit and everything to do with His grace. And honestly, all that ugly that was thrown in my face this morning, only makes me all the more humbled, grateful and passionate about sharing Intertwined with you today.
One of the most incredibly women, Ashlyn, reached out to me in January about her vision of a mission trip for photographers and creatives - something that helps see how faith and business can be intertwined, really how all of life should be intertwined around Christ.

I feel so much passion about this project. I long to see a shift in the creative world where more beautiful souls are empowered to be bold about their faith. I need this! Maybe you do too.Read More
