Hey friend! I’m Katie!

I’m so glad you’re here! Whether you are looking for encouragement to open your Bible even though you’re short on time or help living into your unique God-given purpose or quick idea to add more joy to your day or just a gal keeping it real on the internet you have come to the right place!

I have three crazy kiddos and one amazing husband and we make our home in West Michigan. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Counseling from Bob Jones University and have worked for 10+ years in church, social work and non-profit settings.

I enjoy teaching and speaking about faith and motherhood in small and large groups throughout the Midwest including churches, MOPS groups, women’s retreats and conferences.

I like to curl up with a cup of coffee on Saturday mornings and force my kids to watch HGTV shows. Target is my kryptonite and dry shampoo is my friend.

How it started…

I began blogging back in 2011 when I was just a young married gal as a way to stay in touch with family and friends. Then as I trained for a half marathon and lost weight in my mid-twenties I used it as a fitness journal for my new, healthier lifestyle. I added in lots of recipe posts, baby updates and rambled a lot about my life (still do, sometimes!) as I became a mom in my late twenties.

As I entered my thirties and had three kids in 3.5 years, I began to feel like I was just going through the motions…diaper change, dishes, kiss boo-boos, discipline, laundry, lather, rinse, repeat.  Existing, but not thriving… far from the energetic and purposeful mama I imagined I would be.

It all began to shift for me when I heard a little alien on a kid’s show chirp, “that lights me up!” You can read the whole story HERE. That little question began my intentional pursuit of joy in the everyday mundane moments.

And that is the journey I share here at Chasing Vibrance. It’s grow into so much more than just MY story…it’s your story now too. 

Through the Vibrant Life Kickstart Course, Claiming the Promises Bible Study, Workshops, Vibrant Tribe Facebook Group, social media fam and more this is a MOVEMENT of women stepping into vibrance and victory that cannot be stopped!
