The way people think, the way we react to environmental stimuli, the way we relate to one another, the way our backgrounds and experiences shape the way we view and interact with the world absolutely fascinates me. It’s probably what led me to pursue degrees in psychology and counseling as well as every sociology, anthropology, criminology, and every other social science -ology elective I could get my hands on when I was in college.

Eventually the light that I thought I had been following turned into darkness. With nowhere else to turn I cried out to Jesus, and he began unraveling the deception I had followed for so long. When I encountered the presence of Jesus I was set free and made whole. Jesus is love but more than anything he is TRUTH, and to follow him means to walk along the narrow path. This is my journey of leaving the new age to follow Christ, and discovering many of those same teachings infiltrating the church, just like the bible has warned against. This has been quite the journey, and I'm never quite sure where God is taking me, but Intend to follow and use my gifts to serve the Lord.
I am also a busy mom of four boys, and a registered psychiatric nurse with hopes of becoming a christian counselor one day.
