I am currently finishing my senior year at Spring Arbor University in Michigan. I am studying youth ministry and dream of someday having my own after-school drop-in center to minister to at-risk urban youth. As God's grace and mercy go with me, I am excited to serve the Lord through authentic love and Christ-like service to others for the rest of my days.

The next morning, I attended worship service in Colorado Springs and was emotionally moved by guest speakers at Rocky Mountain... Read More

Secretly, I'm writing fictional stories for children and the inspirational nonfiction biography of Pastor Janet Noble-Richardson. But before those are ready for public viewing, I share pieces of me on Deadwood Writers Voices, a group blog; and on Remembering Janet, the website for the nonprofit charity I’m passionate about. I hope you see my love for God, compassion for people, and enthusiasm for learning in all I do.

I took a peek at what people are so fascinated with. Not too surprising, the talk is of bands, like the Beatles and One Direction. I quickly figured out, however,... Read More
