Hey there, miss!
I'm Sinikka, a go-getter and dream-chaser who loves to serve others well. I am a lover of all things healthy, early morning spiritual reads, and am a self-proclaimed coffee snob and food lover, so don't hesitate to reach out to chat about your wedding or over a good cup of joe or meal!
Most days you can find me walking hand in hand beside the love of my life, Alan. On any given day, you'll find us taking hikes, drinking wine, watching Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's latest show or movie, and planning our next family vacation to the West.
I first encountered Jesus in elementary school after I snatched my older sister's devotional and chose to sit across from the King of Kings on my bed and talk to my "imaginary friend" for the first time. From there, his story for me has included a 9 month exchange student mission's trip to Indonesia, a prayerfully chosen college experience at IU Bloomington, and 2 RCIA classes as I chose to become Catholic after searching scriptures and history books with Alan (my now-husband) by my side.
As a child raised by a mother on fire to spread God's gospel in many Protestant churches we frequented, it was only through tears of confusion that I clearly remember telling the Lord that I would follow His call only if He promised it would bring me closer to Him - which it has again and again :)
The fruit that comes from following in Jesus' footsteps to sacrifice, surrender, and struggle has been well worth it time and again! Amen!

More About Me
If there were only three things on my bucket list, these would be the home-run hitters. I can't believe I'm saying this but here are three bucket list items that I just wish were crossed off already!!!
* Walk in the footsteps Jesus walked - from his birthplace in Bethlehem to his death in Jerusalem
Alan's parents went on a pilgrimage trip to visit Rome, Lourdes, and Venice in January of 2018 and came back with the most incredible stories. Since then, Alan and I have caught the travel bug to follow in the footsteps of his parents (and my grandparents) to make it over there!
* One day, I'd love to sit in a coffee shop in Venice, writing an inspirational book while wearing a beret. I'll be honest, this best represents Sinikka in high school when I first made my bucket list!
* Visit the wineries in Italy that had the BEST of the BEST red wines any person can imagine!
