About Katie and Family

“Every second of a search is an encounter with God”

– Paulo Cohelo

I live in Chicago with my little family, Kurt my husband and our daughter Selah who just turned one. I grew up in San Diego, studied in Santa Barbara (where Kurt and I met) and for the last decade we have called the Midwest home. So why would one move from sunny SoCal to a place where a third of the year it hurts to breathe the frigid air? A question I am frequently asked… I believe that sometimes God leads us to follow Him in ways that don’t make sense until after our feet are a ways down the road. At least that has been my story so far – trust God beyond what I think I’m capable of and watch Him fill me with wonder and awe of what He is capable of. I believe that investing in young people and families is one of the most Holy and high callings and it is my joy to work at Soul City Church to help families become all of who God created them to be. Family Ministry is my jam! And in my free time (haha) I love outdoor adventures, yoga, curling up on the couch drinking tea while reading a book – nerd alert. Most of all, It centers my soul to write and create. It’s terrifying and thrilling all at once. So as I share the “real me” in the most authentic way I know, my hope and prayer is that it is a gift to you as well.
