Meet me

20170128_084627My name is Trish. I grew up in Illinois in a family of seven. From a young age, I enjoyed the arts, particularly literature. I authored my first novel at age ten: a smashing success for its readers (all three of us).

Since then, I’ve worked various jobs including a year of work in Mexico. More recently, I graduated from Illinois State University, taught for two years at a small, private school, spent two summers teaching English in other countries, and earned my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate.

Over the last couple of years, God has been leading me on an adventure of listening to His heart. In spring 2015, I felt Him nudging me to step out of my comfort zone again. And in January 2016, this step took me to North Africa for language and culture study. After 16 months that were both grueling and wonderful, I returned to Illinois where I am currently gathering paperwork for a Spanish resident visa.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~Philippians 4:6-7
