"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!

"I wouldn't change anything about you, or ever ask you to be "different." You are who you are. And that is what makes you strong! You and your family have impacted my life in such a way, from going from a point where I didn't realize what was missing (action) to a point where I am taking the necessary actions, the movements it takes to "get the job done." ~ Tabby, 20 years old
"Just hearing Jodie’s name brings back so many memories, stories, chats, laughs, and smiles. She is truly one of a kind. Her stories on what she went through as a kid, teenager, and adult have not only inspired me personally but many others as well. Whatever the subject, she will either use a personal story or someone else’s story to help us relate to our own stories. Her teachings are easy to understand; she doesn’t use big words and makes it very simple to understand and grasp. She also challenges you to live beyond your limits." -Ali, 18 years old
"You haven't been just an ordinary bystander in my life; you have been an active part in making me the young woman I am. My future is bright!" ~ Alex, 17
"In the many years I have known you, more than anything else you have shown me the need to stand up for what is right, true, and pure no matter what opposition may stand in my way." ~ Stephen, 18 years old
"I love how you are always there for me even when you are struggling. Something big you taught me is that when you feel the weakest is when you are strongest. Now every time I feel weak, I remember what you taught me and then great things happen and turn everything around." ~Sean, 18 years old
