About Me

IMG_9505I am a worshiper and a lover of God who serves as an intercessory missionary, locally and internationally, using prophetic dance and art to share the love of God and lead others into freedom of worship.

Originally from a small town in Central Illinois, I was always very active in lots of creative things……drawing, dancing, swimming, tumbling, piano, and was very good at it all.  But, even with all of those accomplishments and things, a deep root of rejection had been planted in my heart at a very young age.

At the age of ten, I prayed to receive Jesus Christ into my heart and was baptized.  But, it wasn’t until I was in college that I realized I didn’t fully understand what it really meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus, and to be a daughter of the King.  I struggled through my teenage years to find significance, and turned to relationships with boys for love and acceptance.  A pattern of brokenness, hurt, rejection, and abandonment followed, and ended with the pain of an abusive marriage and divorce by the age of 23.  By that time, layers of lies had taken root my heart, and the dance and artistic creativity within me had died.

Over the next twelve years, I started on a healing journey that led me into new life and freedom.  Part of this journey happened in August 2007 when the Lord called me to quit my corporate job and go to Kansas City, MO, for a 3-month internship at the International House of Prayer (IHOP-KC).  Little did I know that my whole life was about to change, and three months later, the Lord would ask me to move there permanently.  So, with a little bit of courage and a lot of unknowns, I put my house on the market, sold everything I owned, and headed West. This video describes it in its fullest.

The five years that I served at IHOP-KC were life-changing for me, as foundational truths about God, who He is, and who I am to Him were planted in my heart through the teaching, worship, and inner healing ministries.  The Lord began to “awaken the beauty” inside of me, calling me to dance again, to paint again, and to play again….but to do it from my heart, not from a place of performance.  As I began to step into this new-found place of acceptance in the Beloved (Eph. 1:4), my heart slowly came alive again, and I found myself in Him.

Over the past five years, I’ve been blessed to learn how to partner with the Lord in prayer and intercession through prophetic dance and art, and I now have the privilege of teaching others how to do the same. To read more about classes that I offer, go to my classes page.
