What brought you to Christ in the City?

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.

How has Christ in the City helped you grow?
Christ in the City has helped me to realize and embrace what it means to be a woman. I have discovered the way that my heart was made to love and my capacities to embrace and receive others has expanded immensely. 
 
A bit about me
I’m from Nicholasville, KY. I was homeschooled. I just graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a BFA in Musical Theatre. I used to work at a coffee shop. My dad makes pizza. My mom makes art. My sister dances on her toes. My dog thinks she’s a cat. Not to brag but I can gleek. If there’s a tree, I’m up it. Life is better without shoes. My favorite saint is Sr. Clare Crockett. I love sitting in the sun. Everything is joy.
