Believers like you get out of their comfort zone, and lean into new territories of faith everyday. I tell you how.
Some women wear joy like a jacket. They effortlessly smile, wave, and embrace others with a genuine sense of happiness. I admired people like that from afar but never thought I could be one of them.

more about me
I have served in ministry for the past decade, as well as being involved in my local community. My zeal for life, and contagious laughter light up a room. Chart a Course is my maiden voyage as an author. I hope readers would have the courage to follow their God-given calling into the unknown.
Does this sound familiar? You fall into bed and even though you are exhausted you run through the endless lists of tasks for tomorrow. You feel the pressure to keep hustling. Even though many of us are working from home and have limited activities thanks to the global pandemic we are still “striving” to get it all done. Did you know this endless rushing is actually an attack on a spiritual promise of rest God? We are meant to have rest. God not only gives us rest but it is one of the commands in His word. (Exodus 20:8-11) Let’s unpack these three lies we believe about rest so we can reclaim what is rightfully ours.
It’s that time of year where we all resolve to treat our bodies better than we did last year. I lead a pretty health conscious life but even I feel the need for a reboot come January. December always boasts too much chocolate, wine, and lounging. However, I recognize that setting goals that are too difficult to implement or simply have results too far in the future get abandoned. Here are five of my favorite healthy habits that are easy to start.
The gift of hospitality comes very natural to some. My mother is one of the world’s greatest hosts. Her photo should be next to “The hostess with the mostess,” in the urban dictionary. Everytime she invites people over they leave feeling refreshed, relaxed, and wishing the party wouldn’t end. The interesting thing is her parties are not always the same and the guests cover a wide range of people. She hob-nobs with the elite and the common, the wealthy and the poor, the extroverts and the introverts. No matter who is sitting at her table I can almost guarantee they will leave her home feeling warm and cozy and hoping to get another invite soon. How does she do it?
My favorite quote by Jessica Carey, "Skepticism parades itself as wisdom to keep us stuck in a place of fear."
"Jessica escorts the reader through a sea-worthy adventure of falling in love over and over with God. Brutally honest walk with God as a reminder that He does indeed fill the holes of the heart and quiets the spirit."
"Having a destination to aim for gives each of us purpose and meaning; and when we allow God to determine our course, He will bring the resources and crew we need exactly when we need them. Jessica's book Chart A Course beautifully navigates the journey of discovering where you are going, how to get there, who to bring along and most importantly why."
