Hi Friends!

I’m so excited to share a fun, exciting update with you! 🙂

First some quick background info…..

In 1996, God saved my life. Literally.

(In case you’ve not heard my story, you can read it here).

Soon after my drug overdose, I committed my life to Jesus Christ.

Best. Decision. Ever.

As I began to walk in grace, Truth and freedom, doors began to open for me to share my journey.

Although I’m just a “shy girl from Indiana” who never enjoyed talking in front of people, I made God a promise.

After giving me a second chance at life, I would do anything God asked of me. If it was telling my story ~ I would do it. Anytime. Anywhere. For Him.

In the past 15 years, I’ve shared my story in all kinds of fun places around the country.

1:1 Coffee shop meetings

Homeless Shelters

Church Basements

Living Room filled with single moms


Fancy Christmas Teas

You get the drift. 🙂

I’ll confess, every time I’m about to share my stomach is in knots and I feel like I’m going to be sick. Every single time. And yet, if God can use my story for His purpose and glory, I’ll be there.

Imagine my surprise when last March, an international ministry asked me to have lunch with them. (Me?!)

As I sat around the table, I met an amazing, Christ-centered team made up of video producers, publishers, and marketing members. This team had heard of how God is using my story and my Red Hot Bible study to impact women in West Michigan.

At the end of our lunch gathering, the head of publishing leaned over to me and asked if I’d be interested in doing a project with them. (Me?!)

I’ve spent the past 6 months praying, dreaming, meeting, writing, praying more (and begging my friends to join me in prayer!), and asking God what in the world He is up to!

Earlier this month, I gathered with this team again. Plans are starting to come together, and it is ONLY GOD Who could/would orchestrate all of this.

I asked the team if I could let you, my dear *She Sparkles* friends, in on some of the fun. Whereas I’m not at liberty to tell you everything (just yet!) ~ I can fill you in on one exciting part that’s happening very soon!


To be continued tomorrow….
