Bio

I love chocolate. I love sunny days and I think naps should be mandatory. I like peanut butter on and in everything, but nothing beats a good cup of coffee. Organization is my friend, as are early, early mornings! In my experience, running is addictive, as is Pilates. I can often be found in the kitchen trying out my newest recipe, or throwing together my favorites :) My deep dark secret is that I sleep with a nightlight and with music playing all night!! I'm short and stout, but unfortunately, I can't whistle like the little teapot! I'm an intercessor and I know I've been called to stand in the gap.
Though I've done my share of worship leading and singing alone at my piano, writing has never come easy – which is probably why it's so delicate for me. These songs grew after hysterical tears and raging anger subsided and Holy Spirit showed me what was really underneath...a desire that seemed unquenchable. But I've learned to embrace the yearning in my heart for the Eternal because the Divine plan is that I seek only perfect communion with the Almighty for as long as I live. My worship emerged in quiet time and began to flow through my journal and through my mouth. "Buried Treasure" is a glimpse of the journey!
I grew up in St. John's under the guidance of two fabulous parents who are far more tolerant of my brother and I than I give them credit for! The church that helped them out is St. John's Temple, which after 22 years is like extended family. I just finished my french degree from Memorial University and I'm currently transitioning between making lattes at Starbucks and being WestJet's newest flight attendant. I have no idea where I'm going in life, but Jesus does. I'll know soon enough. My earnest prayer for the journey is that my life would reflect David's description in Psalm 34:5 : « They looked to Him and were radiant. » (KJV)
