My Story

I am…

Forgiven and Redeemed.

A Wife to one.

Mother to three humans and one dog.

Daughter, Sister, Aunt, and Friend.

An Educator, Communicator, and Volunteer.

Illinois Native and Texas Transplant.

A Follower of Jesus, Book Launch Team Junkie, and Accidental Blogger.

Addicted to Burt’s Bees, Pistachios, Analogies, and Hot Tea.

Blessed beyond description, but no stranger to tough times. My past rebellion led me to a deeper passion and now my desire is to share the transforming power of true love, grace, and forgiveness…found in Jesus.

Unswervingly is a place for me to record the lessons I’m learning along this journey. This blog exists so I won’t forget, to excavate hope, and to encourage you.

Thank you for stopping by, browsing around, leaving kind comments, and engaging in this space!

  2. I thank God for Alyssa! She is an amazing mentor. Always loving, laughing and holding me accountable for my circumstance. She helped me press in to God, knowing that she has walked in my shoes and not judging, but giving hope and sharing His love, grace and mercy. Thank you Prophet of Joy! Blessings!
