I wake in the morning – I gave thanks and ask: “God how can I serve You today?”

As a child I was brought up Catholic, I hit the major landmarks: baptism, first communion, confirmation on the Catholic highway but my spirit was a vagabond seeking answers…I went looking into the popular modern day hodgepodge of self-realization and false doctrines but found nothing to fill the void in my spirit. I did however encounter tremendous challenges, pain, disappointment and adversity that left me completely broken but thankfully, by the grace of God, ready to hand my life over to the Lord. For the last four years, I’ve been walking by faith and the Lord has been healing past hurts and doing incredible work in molding me into the woman He undoubtedly created me to be. I’m am however still uncertain of the true call on my life.

I’ve been successful as a U.S. Marine but have failed (so far) as an entrepreneur. My resume tells me I’m qualified for jobs in Information Technology but I have a degree in Psychology and have been plagued with the desire to travel and write since I was a child. After I fell to my knees and gave my life to Christ, He proceeded to ask me to lay all of my dreams at his feet. It took me a couple of years to fully comply, and I didn’t expect it to leave me feeling as lost as I sometimes feel. Of course, I’ve also learned to rely completely on the Lord and not worry about how “I feel.”

My focus is on the Lord, to know Him better, to understand Him and to serve Him. I keep my thoughts align with Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I’m seeking God’s Will. Being Me, According to God – Discovering His Will, The World and New Adventures


This Website

This site is about my overall journey – it’s about Being Me. It was once about my journey as an entrepreneur…a few years later it became about my fitness journey and mission as the Confidence Builder. Now, it’s focused more on my faith, writing, travel and adventures. However, through it all it’s always been about sharing who I am and what I’ve learned. It’s always been the best way for me to express myself and work through what’s been going on in my life.

The trends you’re sure to discover:

  1. I’ve often fallen short…but I never quit
  2. I love to travel, have adventures and try new things
  3. Fitness is large part of my life…but I want to spend more time outside exercising naturally
  4. I’m determined to become a successful published writer
  5. I share with the hope it will help, motivate and inspire others to step out of their comfort zones and grow
  6. When I get interested in something – I go after it fully and completely (refer to #1)
  7. I’m constantly seeking what life is all about and how to serve God
