"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do some-thing. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do."
Jodie’s greatest passion is to help other’s soar in the things of God. Some of her favorite people are YOUTH. Jodie believes youth are the heart of a community, when you reach young people, then you change a community forever. With over 20 years of experience in leading a faith community, Jodie endeavors to use whatever tools necessary to reach this generation.
Jodie’s unique ability to reach today’s youth stem from her own difficulties as a young girl. She faced difficult life challenges from the early age of six when her mother and father divorced. Throughout her childhood and teenage years, alcoholism, poverty, dysfunction, and heartache surrounded Jodie. She is familiar with the pain, setbacks, stigmas, and obstacles young people face today. Her circumstances pushed her to look for help. She found an everlasting strength and hope in a simple decision to follow Christ. Because of this decision, every hurdle she faced allowed her to grow in knowledge and character and propelled her forward into the destiny that she now lives each day. She is a perfect example that your past is not a blueprint for your future. Her philosophy is that no matter the circumstances you were born into or the past choices you’ve made, you were born for greatness and greatness starts today!
