My name is long, so most people simply call me Kacy or Lou. (Or if you’re one of my high schoolers, “Yo, Miss!” usually gets my attention…)
I’m your a-typical, 6’2″, Mexican-American hippie who has turned into a mix of an ex-chola, a bush-savy fisher(wo)man, and a high heel wearin’ girly-girl after spending a year living in the remote Alaskan wilderness.
I typically classify myself as a hot mess (usually one in a dress) whose only Hope comes from Jesus Christ.
By that sovereign and strange grace, I spend my days as the principal of the Denver Street School‘s East Campus and my evenings drinking coffee and writing on this here website to maintain my sanity and faith.
In “real life”, my loud, animated expressions and matching hand gestures are dead give aways as to what I’m passionate about. Spoiler alert for those of you who only know the “electronic version” of me: My passions lie where storytelling, adventure, cross-cultural ministry, and the opportunity to see the goodness of the Lord in the crappiest of situations intersect.
This blog isn’t anything fancy, because let’s be real, I don’t have a fancy bone in my body. All I long to do here is worship the One who Loves me and live out this beautiful life He has given me– the life I never knew I wanted.
“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”
(1 Corinthians 2:2)
