HELLO! My name is Alyssa, but chances are you at least know that much if you made it to this page. I am a lover of manatees, waterfronts, adventures, and, of course, Jesus! Chances are you know a bit of my crazy, beautiful, totally God-orchestrated story. If not, and you’d like to know more, I’d love to hear from you and share with you. God has been so faithful all throughout my life in a million ways. And it has been because of those instances of faithfulness that I have been able to say YES to the whirlwind He has placed my life on these past few months.

I went to Zambia with Poetice for the first time in May 2019 to participate in the School of Justice & Mission. And God blew my mind – not for the first time, but definitely in the biggest way. I saw all the injustices in the area. But I also saw the ways that God was moving to break those strongholds too. I saw individuals laying down idols and families reunited and children praying for grown adults and JOY. So much joy. And let me tell you, friends, there is nothing comparable to witness.

While it has been a whirlwind, it is the most beautiful art that God has orchestrated in my life. There are pieces of this puzzle that He has been weaving since I was in elementary school, which is nuts. I am SO excited to continue to be a part of God’s work through Poetice!

This work is unique and takes support from family and friends, both in prayers and in finances.
