I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Nicholasville, KY.
I’ve always wanted to be a performer. In high school, that desire became a fire that drove me to give everything to my craft. In theatre college, those flames ignited more. Success and daydreams of broadway were almost constantly on my mind and I thought I was happy… But around the start of my junior year, that fleeting happiness began to collapse. I realized that God was bringing me to my knees but I didn’t like that. So I said, “God, I don’t want you… Help.” For months my only prayer was “Detach me from every single thing on this earth. Change the desires of my heart so that all I want is you.” — I did not expect, nor could I ever have imagined the intense joy that has followed me every single day since He responded to that request… I saw a youtube video about Christ in the City and I really wanted to do it. Long story short, I’m just following my heart.
