Welcome to Delight & Be, a safe space for hearts, where we can tell stories of His goodness, to share stories of His love, to ask for prayer. We meet each other here in our imperfection and brokenness to bask in His grace. This is a place where we know that we won’t ever “arrive” until we meet Him face to face, but we will always be in the process of becoming...

LOCALLY

01

At the Delight House, we have been able to create unique and beautiful opportunities for our local community. We gather around the table for weekly meals, we have worship services under the sparkly white lights on the back porch, we sit in our cozy living room around the fireplace and talk about real life and Jesus. . . it is a place for us to dig into the Word, for us to pray over each other, but also movie nights and lots of laughter as we build community together!

NATIONALLY

02

Since our first retreat in 2012, we’ve had girls representing almost every state fly into our tiny airport for a retreat or workshop. These retreats (25 attendees) and workshops (7-10 attendees) are the heart of Delight & Be. Worship, eating three meals a day together, being creative, sharing real life and wrestling through hard questions, talking about Jesus and emphasizing how imperative it is to DIG in the Word. These experiences created for young women are truly life-giving where deep friendships are formed and where hearts are changed!

ONLINE

Yes, it is possible to have a true, deep connection through an online community. Friendships, accountability partners, mentorships have all been created through our communities online since 2013. These communities are places of generational discipleship that is both intentional and Holy Spirit led.

LOCAL TEENAGERS

75 local young women since 2014

In 2009, I went through a battle of depression and PTSD. I remember the lies I listened to... that I was all alone, that no one would understand, that I had nothing valuable to offer. Through this dark time in life, God birthed what is now Delight & Be. God brought me a camera as a tool to bring healing into my life that led me to being a wedding photographer. At a photography retreat in 2011, God gave me a vision of young women with cameras worshipping. . .and I knew He was asking me to step out in faith and host a photography workshop in 2012. People laugh when I say I didn’t even like teen girls and that they actually scared me... because now I’m “Momma Wall” and my heart truly beats for these young women. The biggest thing I’ve learned is when you tell Jesus “YES”, to be ready for the biggest adventure of your life!

My heart is to provide a safe place for young women... whether online or in person. A place where they can come as they are with no judgement, only the unconditional love of Jesus. (But that includes pointing them back to the TRUTH of the Word of God even if the truth is hard to hear!) A place where they can wrestle through the difficult questions, receive a lot of hugs & encouragement, to always know that they have a community to share the joy, the laughter, but also the pain & sorrow of life. My heart is for deep roots and foundational truth. My heart is for girls to walk in the freedom that Jesus desires and provides for us.
