Welcome to my morning devotional

We are a community that exists to help you fit prayer time into your busy schedule, every day.

My story really began the moment I fell to my knees and cried out for help.

It was two thousand & sixteen and I had just gone through years and years of strife. You see I grew up Catholic so naturally, I knew who Jesus was but I never grew a personal relationship with Him and because of that, I didn't understand the power of relationship. Like everyone, I have a story, I have a testimony. Mine started when I was a sophomore in High School. My house caught fire and what I was about to endure was a road of seven long years filled with heart ache. My faith was shaken more than once as my family battled some real lows. Depression, cancer, and addiction plagued those I loved most and my very faith was taken from me when I had lost all hope. 

I had no idea at the time... 

But God was always there. He walked with me through every heart ache and every season. When I finally got through those years, I looked back and saw it was all in His perfect timing. I had been through fire, and I was ready to share my story with just about anyone who would listen. 

after i found jesus, i found joy. I found my passions, I followed my dreams.

I always wanted to own a bakery so I dove straight into my dreams. I worked all hours of the night, baking and perfecting my recipes until I finally announced my business, Sequoia Baking Co.! I was still working a full time job, but I had this feeling as if it was exactly where I needed to be. In the moment I thought it was because God was calling me to this life of being a business owner, but what I didn't see was He had me in this busy season for a reason entirely different.

That was the exact moment it all changed for me. When I realized this life was nothing without Him...

In that busy season of juggling a business and a full-time job while also trying to be a good family member and friend, I saw my prayer time slip through my very fingers. Remembering how far I had come with Jesus at the center of my life I was petrified to lose my relationship with Him.

That's when my morning devotional was born.

I started an email chain with thirty people to help me stay accountable with my prayer time. I wasn't the only one who needed time alone with Jesus. Now I produce daily Podcast episodes, and write Bible Studies to help others on their faith journey! I am so honored you are here.
