I am a 20 something from Fargo, North Dakota. If you know nothing of North Dakota just chew on these few facts, It contains a little gem called Rugby, North Dakota, which is the geographical center of North America and it owes most of it’s pop culture fame to the Coen Brother’s who created the 1996, malicious snow packed movie “Fargo”. If you haven’t seen this gruesome film yet, keep in mind it was mostly filmed in Minnesota and we definitely don’t have quite as thick of accents. Last and certainly not least, we have the largest buffalo statue in the world! In all seriousness, I love North Dakota. What the state lacks in excitement the community makes up for with kindness, love and generosity.
I was born in Bismarck, raised in Fargo, went to Fargo North High School and Studied Organizational Communication and Marketing at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. I am a member of Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church. I enjoy playing the ukulele, watching old films (1940’s-ish), water-skiing, hiking, traveling, watching hockey and being an amateur photographer. I love coffee, chocolate and my favorite vegetable is broccoli. I am the proud mother to a two year old, border collie mix, named Lola. I adore my family and friends and God is awesome.
I am starting a new chapter. I will be embarking on a year of service with the ELCA organization Young Adult in Global Mission. (YAGM) For this coming year, 2015 – 2016, I will be serving a community in Warwick, England as a Youth Programs Director for the Church of Claverdon. I am so excited to begin this year as a servant of Christ and so terribly stoked to see what God has in store for me. I expect to feel lots of feelings, experience new things, adventure and be challenged at my core. God is already stirring my soul as I try to navigate the blogging world.
Keep up with my faith filled adventure as I uproot and head to England for the year via Facebook or this blog page.
