Hi. I’m Megan or “Nutmeg” as my momma called me since the day I could talk. At age nineteen, I said yes to God. It wasn’t an easy yes, but rather an irresistible, undeniable invitation towards God, My Creator. I truly haven’t been the same since. 

Not unlike you, so many things have shaped me. My family has shaped me. My schooling has shaped me. Pain has shaped me and continues to shape me. My husband shapes me.  My kids, oh Lord, how they shape me! Each job...each move...each neighbor and friend  and stranger has shaped me. As a result, I have grown to care deeply about shaping youth, families, men and women through being authentic in a broken world and share the hope and healing I’ve discovered through Jesus along with the help of wise counsel along the path. 

Since 1990, I have worked in the trenches of ministry at a variety of churches, including Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA where I served for nearly ten years. While there, I was fortunate to co-author and run a ministry called Life Hurts – God Heals, which is now in over 6,000+ churches both nationally and internationally. For the past five years, I served as a full-time ordained adult ministries pastor. What a journey! My network and influence both locally and nationally, continues to run both deep and wide. To GOD be the glory. 

I am a proud wife & mom, former youth minister, national speaker and author, as well as the sole proprietor of thinkbig320© a speaking ministry based in Ephesians 3:20 promising God’s power to work within us.

Did I mention that I married up? My husband Adam, is a hydro-geologist (try saying that 10x) who, after spending a year in Africa, is passionate to help developing countries get clean drinking water. He works for the Orange County Water District. For fun, he swims laps, surfs and cycles. For fun, I sing throughout my home as if I were on Broadway, attempt to surf and teach indoor cycle at a local gym.  Together, we are blessed to have two teenage sons who serve as our joy and mirror. 

Having said all that, allow me to share my daily prayer: God, use my life, talents, skills, abilities and pain in whatever way serves you best.  And friend, that includes whatever brought YOU to my website. I hope to connect with you!
