Why did you join the Pursuit Ministries?

Recently, I’ve been learning the important of community, authentic community filled with truth and words of encouragement! I joined Pursuit because I wanted to find a community of women that is passionate about service and pouring into the lives of other girls that I could invest in.

What is your favorite bible verse and why?

My favorite verse is John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” I love this verse because its a sweet reminder not to expect a live free of difficulties, but rather to look to the Lord for strength during difficult times.

Words of encouragement for High School/Middle School Girls:

It's so easy in middle school/high school to feel like you are all alone but You are so loved and KNOWN by the creator of the entire universe and He cares for you and wants to have a relationship with you!
