Hi, I’m Merritt.

For a long time, the only dream I had room for in my heart was marriage. I was obsessed.

I tried to dull the ache of my heart with social activities, work, achievements, volunteering, media—anything to keep from feeling alone—but all of it left me empty.

But God. He is faithful. And He was brewing something in me that I could not conceive of at the time. There were God-shaped dreams forming in my heart and waiting in the wings while I longed for what I didn't yet have.

Fast-forward a decade and even now, married and finally a mommy, I am reminded that putting my life on hold to wait for “what could be” is a great way to miss out on “what’s right now.”  

I want to give you the Permissionspace and courage you need to pursue Your God-shaped dreams.

Too often, we let what we don't have tell us we're not enough. I'm here to remind you; you already are. Whether your dream is a career, a ministry, a relationship, parenthood or another passion maybe yet-to-be-uncovered, I'd love to walk with you in it.

In this community, I’ll openly and honestly share my story, listen to yours and build along with you a sense of courage and camaraderie while you diligently seek the Lord to reveal what he has next for you. 


He will do it. I promise. And so does He.

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
— Matthew 6:33 (NASB)
