My 1st Live TV Interview + PURSUE Magazine is Now Available via Pre-order!

Last week I had my very first live TV interview! For those of you who watched it live online and/or sent your prayers and well wishes, thank you! If you've followed my blog for a while now then you might know that I've had to face my fear of public speaking because I felt God calling me to minister to teens through the spoken word rather than just the written word. This interview was a leap of faith -- especially since it was live and an hour-long. But I'm so glad I did it, and I'm even more thankful to have had the opportunity to share what's on my heart.

If you missed the interview, you can view it below. 

In other news, PURSUE Magazine is now available for pre-order! Our first digital issue releases on April 15th. I can't wait to share this with you! In this issue, you will learn how to embrace your uniqueness, discover who you are in Christ, and BECOME. 

A huge thanks to all of the writers, editors, and our graphic designer for making this possible!

You can view PURSUE on Amazon & pre-order for only $1.99 at {this link}.
