My life looks like...

Just over a year ago I transitioned from the university student city life in Saskatoon to the working/farmer wife life in rural SK. I live in a small village with 130 people where main street consists of a general store and a tiny post office (we are box 145 of 148!). Between my days of working as a Registered Nurse at the local hospital in Shellbrook, you can find me keeping my husband company on the combine, learning how to garden and make homemade jam, biking the gravel back roads, leading worship at our church, or babysitting our 3 nephews…with monthly trips back to Saskatoon to visit my city friends (and do some shopping) of course.

A few things I love...

I absolutely love travelling and getting to meet people of different cultures & ethnicities. Horseback riding, Latin inspired dance workouts (eg. Zumba!), and a good game of beach volleyball are a few of the things that make me “come alive.” Knee boarding, sun tanning, Coffee, and deserts of any kind are also some things I love.

Why I believe in the mission of Mirror Mirror YXE...

I am passionate about young people, especially girls, growing into their full God given potential. Knowing your identity, worth, and belonging in Christ is crucial to fulfill the purposes and destiny God has put you on this earth for. I know what it feels like to struggle with body image and self- worth. During my preteen/early teen years I was very skinny, had terrible acne, frizzy hair, glasses, and braces. I remember one of the ladies in our church giving me a Christian magazine for young girls about Identity and self-worth. I began to soak in the truth about who God said I was- and it changed everything. I began to embrace my “school smarts” and natural curly hair. Thankfully I eventually got my braces off and my acne improved. But what remained was an inner confidence and value that was rooted in God’s approval of me and not what the world said. I want to pass on that same message I received as a young girl to others who so desperately need it. There is a great need for girls today, regardless of race, social status, living in rural or urban settings, to hear the message of Mirror Mirror YXE.
