My name is Anne Marie, and you’ve stumbled upon a little extension of my heart.
I’m a daughter, writer, speaker, podcaster, and artist. Super passionate about practical holiness, healing, all things womanhood, and relationships. Big into kicking butts and flipping tables but also the silence of the secret place and encountering the Father’s heart, in a lasting, sustainable lifegiving way.
I’m not creating from a place of having it figured out, but seriously, imperfectly walking it out with the Lord.
Picture this: your relationship with God doesn’t have to be the moments where you’ve struggled to lower to bucket to the well, only to pull it back up with sore muscles, slosh out some water and have to do it all over again. I think that’s how we view our journey with Father sometimes: defined by mere moments we spend with the abundance and life giving water that He is. Maybe that’s defined by an experience of Him at a retreat, or an event, or even momentarily through a blog post.
But I believe that relationship with Jesus can be constant, sustained connection. Think: endless, forever, abundant waterfall. That doesn’t mean you always feel it, but you’re always living in it, convicted of His presence.
And, well, here’s my journey with all of that.
Here’s what the latest on the blog.
- when you stop looking up to the people you looked up to.A couple months ago, I was listening to a podcast that had an interview with a well-known married couple. I recognized their names but couldn’t place them, plus I was at work, so I didn’t look them up right away. They were sharing about the business they founded and grew together, beautiful insights on marriageContinue reading “when you stop looking up to the people you looked up to.”
- weaponizing successGrowing up, I had a lot of “friend” problems. Particularly in first and second grade, I was bullied pretty badly. Nothing physical, but I was incredibly affected by the cattiness of other girls, being left out, and just general unkindness. When I was little, all I wanted to do was something BIG– I still haveContinue reading “weaponizing success”
- are you afraid of order?We wage war against disorder by cultivating order in our physical and spiritual environments. Bam, we’re hitting this week hard, right out of the gates. The world isn’t slowing down for us– headlines continue to roll out, inducing fear and despair and just a general WHAT the heck is going on feeling. Out of control,Continue reading “are you afraid of order?”
Here’s some cool stuff I’ve been working on.

The Colin & Annie Show
Colin is my future husband, and we love good conversations, living in authentic joy, and storytelling! Covid-19 cut season one short, but you can catch up before season two begins in August!
We’re not meant to do life on our own, or build the kingdom by ourselves. I would love to have a conversation with you about any sort of project you’re working on, and how I can celebrate and support you, and potentially contribute. I’ve been featured on Blessed Is She, The Young Catholic Woman, and LifeTeen, and have spoken to hundreds of middle schoolers, high schoolers, men, and women over the years. One time I even spoke at a retreat for women who were all over the age of sixty– y’all should have SEEN the worship that night (you already KNOW Holy Spirit showed up).
