God created such an inspirational world full of people with insights and thoughts that are extremely motivating. It’s this creativity that prompts every idea, challenge and struggle encompassed in this site. My inspiration comes from the natural world that surrounds us, the beautiful art and architecture in the world we designed, the engaging spoken word expressed in literature and music, and the strength of relationships with fellow disciples of Christ. So, if I mention something you have created without offering credit, I apologize but pray that together our accidental conversation can encourage people to embrace God’s compassion and love.
My greatest inspiration is the Father the instigator of all things, my Savior and His exquisite word, and The Spirit who reveals magnificence. The trinity is thus the culprit for the birth of niNe. magazine, a publication I founded in 2005 for teen girls. The intent behind the name is to encourage youth to seek Christ’s desire for their life. By living a life full of the spirit, we anticipate that youth will emulate the fruit of the spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Wear Your Wardrobe: Wear Your Wardrobe is a personal challenge to wear a new outfit every day for an entire year with ONLY the clothes already in my closet. Like many women, I have an interest in fashion, a desire to find beauty in this world and an intrigue in discovering creativity in the ordinary. This is my journey to rediscover beauty in the midst of the things I already own in order to encourage others to value what they already have and utilize these items as expressions of their own character. My hope for this project is to stimulate creative thinking when it comes to expressing one’s character and personality through fashion.
