The Journey of a Kingdom Runner

MY STORY | In 2005 I founded a handbag company when a home project went awry and I took some left over fabric, added some fringe and called it a BAGOLITA. Who knew they would be such a hit? After selling over 100,000 handbags (with the help of many!) and having the bottom fall out of the business during The Great Recession, God started weaving a new story into my life and it was time to set the fabric and fringe aside for awhile. After some serious grieving of the company and people I loved spending my days with, I started to redefine myself outside of being “the bag lady.”

I now spend my days helping people transform their lives as a certified life coach and my heart sings as the sewing machine whirls in the nooks and crannies.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE | I am happily married to the love of my life, Brad. Our family began when our son, Carson, entered this world in 2001 – followed by our daughter, Rylie, in 2003. We live in Iowa, which was never on my bucket list. I truly believed I would be a Minnesotan for life, but after moving the Iowa City area in 1997, I wouldn’t want to call anywhere else home.
