Home Means…A Quarter Century

Most of my friends have come to this day…a corner turned, a page flipped, that marks a milestone of numbers attached to your name.

Today, I joined the quarter century club. I am 25 years old now.

Leading up to this day was fun for me. I am a firm believer in telling the future by telling the past. Where have a been? What did I do that got me where I am and made me who I am?

Reflective and soft? Sure, but my mind never sleeps!

So the last 15 days have been a collection of tweets marking miracles, 15 memories of times that have shaped me.

So there you have it. I could have put 15+ more influential people, places, and moments on this list!

A birthday is like your own personal New Year. For me, many, many changes are coming in 2018.

I have decided to resign my position as traffic anchor at KTVN and work for my family’s successful and compassion-driven businesses, Lend-A-Hand Senior Services. I have been tasked to continue our legacy of providing quality, in-home care to seniors in our community. It’s something we never thought I would do, but sometimes God taps you on the shoulder and you either listen or keep the course and hope the door doesn’t hit you along the way!

This top 15 list has been a collection of me listening closely for those “taps” from God. It happened when I went to Biola, Washington D.C., KTVN…and here I am again at a time of making big moves in faith they will prosper.

I am nervous. I am unqualified. I have never done anything other than television, but as my Mom said to me in confidence, “It’s in your blood.”

On this 25th birthday, I just want to say thank you to my wonderful parents for giving me every tool I ever needed to seek out and achieve dreams.

To my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ for his blessings, love, and commission to seek out and love others.

And to you…for reading this here blog. “Home Means” is about people’s stories. This one happens to me about me. But what is your story? Where have you been? Where are you going? I encourage you to think, listen, pray for a life that is full of twists, laughs, prosperity, and hardship.

Life really is a journey.

Enjoy it.


PS) I wonder when I’ll do this again…40 maybe?
