A little less than a decade and a half ago, two young twenty- somethings met, fell in love and got married – all at a speed that still makes my heart race. Shortly after, we joined in on leading the beginnings of a small prayer meeting in south Kansas City, crying out to God in prayer and worship – a prayer meeting that soon went round the clock, 24/7. And is still going!
Fast forward fourteen years and four kids – and all the life that fills those words – and we’re still serving as intercessory missionaries at IHOP-KC, locked arms with our financial partners in this mission. With great joy! (And though no longer newlywed twenty-somethings, more in love than ever!).
Besides the wonderfully “full” that comes with days as a Mom of four children, I love, love, love my times of prayer leading on worship teams at the House of Prayer. I also have written three books: Deep unto Deep, Entirety, and Mourning for the Bridegroom, and am a contributing author of The Rewards of Fasting by Mike Bickle.
Matt and I have been part of the Forerunner School of Ministry (FSM) faculty at IHOPU for many years, teaching various courses. Matt has taught courses such as the The Way of Intimacy, Hymns of Revelation and the Apostolic Prayers, Romans: Theology of Holy Passion, the Life of David, and more. I have taught courses on The Way of Intimacy, the Song of Songs, the Fasted Lifestyle, and more. Currently we have one course (that we taught together – my favorite!) available for audit or credit online called The Way of Intimacy at IHOPU’s e-school.
When my amazing, brilliant husband is not spending his time overseeing the prayer room or teaching, or coaching worship teams at the Forerunner Music Academy, he labors to help resource and strengthen prayer and worship in the nations here – both with practical tools and biblical foundations.
Narrowed down, the passion of my heart is just Jesus. I want to give all of my days to loving Him well and to pursuing and witnessing of His beauty and scandalous love.
I dream of my children being a part of a generation of passionate worshippers who offer their lives freely to Him, joining the songs of the nations in worship and prayer, until He comes again…and stays.
