These are all accurate descriptions of who I am, but they do not define me.

I teach fifth grade in a small town in Minnesota.

I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have two precious babies. Jemma and Milo.

I am a believer in Jesus. I'm an advocate for doing the hard work to really know what church should look and feel like.

I recently self published my first book. It is titled Pushing Into Joy. This website is largely a result of that and a place for me to establish my voice and my content.

I hope this will be a place you can come and feel understood, seen, and cared for from my small corner of the world.

I hope it is a platform of growth for me, for you, for us on this journey towards wholeness, health, and the best versions of ourselves.
