ABOUT ME

 

HI! I'M VANESSA

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog! My greatest desire is to see a world with more love and grace. If you feel the same way, you’re in the right place. This blog is a space to share my reflections on what it means to live on the side of grace as I stumble through and learn it for myself. 

Let me tell you a little bit about myself…

I’m a Christ follower, and I desire to love God and love others in all I do.

I’m a wife to Matt and mom to Ava + Jaxon. I love my sweet little family.

I am Pastor of Peacemaking & Justice at One Life City Church. 

I previously spent 10 years working with Solidarity, a non-profit organization that equips Latino, immigrant families in under-resourced neighborhoods.

I love connecting with others and journeying through life with my community.

I’m a recovering perfectionist, and I’m learning to release my expectations and show more grace to myself and others.

I value self-reflection, authenticity, and vulnerability because I believe they lead us deeper into who God created us to be.

I feel called to be a peacemaker and to use my voice to share truth. This blog is a space for that.

Thanks for joining me!

Also, make sure to check out more of my writing at Patheos. Follow along with my column, In All Things Love.
