Made to flourish
Dear Sister, whether you are new to the vineyard or already abiding, I’m so glad you’re here! The Divine Gardener of our soul desires to dig deep, prune and nourish our lives so that we don’t just merely survive – but that we passionately and purposefully thrive!

Let’s find our way to an immensely fruitful life together.

LUMINOUS – Be a light to the nations

If you relate to exhaustion stemming from hiding in the shadows, wading through sun-struck terrains or simply running on empty with futile efforts to fix your life, then this memoir is just for you! Through the poignant story of a woman’s desperate quest for water, we are invited to the only source that satiates all thirst and a Love that triumphs over all sin.

In and through vivid imagery of water and light, we are brought to the intimate reality of Grace, through which we become gleaming gifts and luminous witnesses to a world waiting in darkness!
