Wow...a lot has taken place since my last newsletter in December. This year, I was so thankful to spend another year celebrating my dad's birthday on New Year's (yes he is a New Year's baby!).

After my dad sustained a traumatic brain injury last July and was in a coma for 6 weeks...we are truly grateful for all the ways God has answered so many prayers. My dad is now walking, talking and doing so much better! God is so good. Here is a picture of me, my dad and my sister.

1. Overcoming Body Image Lies

I am so excited to let you know that we have officially launched our monthly webinar presentations and had our first one this week called, "Overcoming Body Image Lies." We had an awesome time together! The replay link is now available (as well as the MP3 download and PDF notes) in the "True Beauty Insider's Club."

It's free to join, so if you haven't done so already, join now here:

2. Discipleship Opportunity

I have sensed that God wants me to help teen girls grow closer to Jesus by discipling a small group online. This will be done through the internet and/or phone calls. There is some pretty cool technology out there that lets us connect from all around the world!

At this time, I am only accepting 6 girls into my discipleship group. Are you interested? If so, get more information and submit your application here:

3. Supporting Each Other was created to be a place to help and be helped. It's designed to be a community of girls and women finding their true beauty in Christ. Here are some ways people are reaching out to one another and encouraging each other!

Please Pray for My Friend

4. Stories of Hope

Many girls and women share their stories on my website to offer hope. If you need encouragement, read a few of these powerful testimonies today!

5. Find Your True Beauty Speaking Team

I have sensed that God wants me to open up the opportunity for many others to share the messages of Find Your True Beauty. I believe that it is important for the focus to be placed on a relationship with Jesus. The goal of this ministry is help fix a generation's eyes back on Christ. At this time, I am only accepting 25 women onto the speaking team. I may open it up to more people at a later time.

Are you interested? If so, you can get more information and submit your application here: If you have any other questions, let me know!
