TRUTH 

TELLER.​​

​I think you and I have been taught¬†to believe¬†some things that aren't true about ourselves and it's time to take the trash out. We've been taught so much junk about our worth and value and a lot of it is not empowering nor life giving.

I wrote a course called Identity because my heart is to help you figure out who you are, what's your purpose, and how to live your most authentic life.

I've been working with teenagers and young adults since 2013. I'm not a counselor. I'm a fellow traveler. I stayed stuck in questioning who I was and beat myself up far too long. What I offer you is through Identity is truth, a way to change your life, and a chance to connect the dots to what you're already feeling and encourage you to be who you've been created to be. I do all this with the help of God.
There are a few things I'd like to share about myself...

1.) I don't like lying and I hate being fake. I'm not good at it. I don't like it. I'd rather tell you the truth and it hurt and then we unpack it together rather than pretend things are good. I'm not good at hiding my feelings either. If I still struggle with something I'm going to say I struggle. There is no room here for pretend and acting like I have all the answers. Ain't nobody got time for that! 

2.) You and me...we're in this together. Life, humanity, this class...it all means something. I want you to be your best most authentic self. I want you to feel freedom and relief from whatever has hurt you in the past or confused you about the future. It's all good. You have a partner in this, boo. Her name is Stella. 

3.) There will be people who don't understand what is going on with you. If you take this class they will not get it. That's cool. They don't need to. I just want to encourage you that this isn't about their path its about yours. You gotta work it out for yourself. You gotta look at yourself in the mirror and take one step at a time. This isn't their journey it's yours. Own it. I'm here with you.
For those of us who don't know God or don't really want to know God: 
That is totally ok. I'm glad you're here! I want to invite you on a journey with me. Not one where I shove religion down your throat (nope) or tell you what to do (so annoying.)  I want to share with you what I've learned about life because I learned about God. Maybe you have questions and you don't know any Christians or you've heard or saw bad things. I can totally be that person for you that would be happy to unpack some things. And BONUS I'm going to do it in a way that is non-judemental...because holier than thou churchy people get on my nerves too.

Listen, I don't have all my crap together and I don't expect you to either. I just wanna share with you what I've learned. There are a lot of religions out there we like to quote and take advice from even if we aren't Hindu, Buddist, or the like. Maybe Christianity will have some good life skills in it even if you don't believe. If at the end of this you get something out of it awesome! If you hate my guts I'll give you your money back. PS I hope you love me cause I already love you.  ;-) 

For those of us who do know God or are interested in learning more:
I'm glad you're here too! I never knew learning about  Jesus can help you you figure out who you are. I guess I wasn't listening in Catholic School. I was too busy paying attention to all the cute boys (true story.) But now after years of trying to figure out who I am I finally get it. And it didn't really have anything to do with me I just stopped pushing God out and decided to choose to listen. (I can be kind of bull headed sometimes.) Truth is, some of us have been sitting in church for years and don't get it either. I.HEAR.YOU Let's unpack this together and get to the bottom of it. Shall we? I got your back, boo!
