My Journey To the House of Prayer
When I was graduating from Michigan State University (MSU), I wanted to get as far away from the school as possible. Then one day, the Lord convicted me. He said, “You’re trying to run away from MSU, but I want you to stay.” I thought, GOD NO, but I trusted Him and obeyed.
Looking back, my experience at MSU was an intense molding and working of clay into the woman I am today. God was using many things to grow and shape me: friends who love Jesus, Bible studies, church, and prayer. Above all, God used some of my hardest experiences to reveal lies that I believed and grow me into his beautiful daughter. Jesus was with me in my darkest moments and has redeemed my story of pain into one of joy. As a result, I want to be with him, and I want others to be with him too.
Today, I know why God called me to stay in the Lansing area, and staying here has been better than I imagined. After a year and a half of working in public relations, I transitioned into a full-time ministry position in February 2020. As a staff member at the House of Prayer East Lansing, I have the privilege to mentor other young women, serve the director, and lead the art and racial unity ministries.
About My Blog and How You Can Partner
Coming on staff has been a journey, because I rely on the generosity of monthly donors to do the work I do. As a result, I decided to create this blog to share what God’s been teaching me along the way. You also will find artwork and materials I use to discuss race with the church. God so deeply wants us to be unified in love. You may subscribe to my newsletter below, which includes updates of what I’m doing at the House of Prayer and prayer requests. If you would like to make a monthly or one-time donation, you may donate here.
