♡ Hi gals!
I’m Alisha. I’m a Bible teacher + writer + speaker. Originally from Utah, born and raised. Currently live in Charlotte, NC. I’m married to my best friend, Nick. He proposed to me after being my boyfriend for 94 days! (check out our love story) He’s a total stud and if it wasn’t for his love, support, and daily encouragement, I’m not sure if I would have been brave enough to write my first blog post.
Like how many of God’s best stories start, I didn’t plan for this part of my life. I would have laughed if you told me a few years ago that I would leave by successful career as a former-financial VP and turn into a full time stay-at-home wifey + dog mama.
Here I was with an open canvas at my door. With what I felt like was a prompting from the Lord to dedicate my time to pursue a calling as a teacher, writer, and speaker.
There was a lot of wrestling with God at the beginning, questioning things He’d placed on my heart I couldn’t seem to shake. I wanted to run back to my career countless times because pursuing God’s calling was too unknown, too unfamiliar, too fearful. Yet, truth be told, I felt this calling on my life from the time I was young.
Pursuing the ministry of working with gals like yourself was God’s design. God’s grace and power has enabled me and fully equipped me to turn my messy life experience’s into my message I share through this blog and my writings. I have a heart to teach on everyday life with topics such as love, dating, marriage, death (of my sweet older brother Benji), forgiveness, career change, career success, calling, friendships, change, fears, triggers, confidence, identity, fitness, travel, and just EVERYDAY life.
With every word I write, I hope the underlying message will ring loud and clear: God’s TRUTH far outweighs the LIES you have believed about yourself. Healing from a chapter of life consumed with lies I once believed about myself, I am inspired to point women to Christ to experience the freedom + power to overcome those lies with the truth written in God’s word.
♡ I’m a feautured writer for a a few Christian women online publications on topics of faith, relationships, career, and calling. (www.ibelieve.com + www.crosswalk.com). You can check out my articles on the published tab above.
I LOVE that idea of getting to know you! I love the idea of being a part of your life. I love the idea of being your friend, and write to you as if we are sitting face to face having a cup of coffee together. Thank you so much for landing on this page and following my journey as I hope it inspires you on yours.
