I’m so glad you’ve found your way to my site. I’m excited to tell you a little bit about myself, and even MORE excited for you to discover how this blog can challenge, encourage and equip you to live BOLDLY by the Word of God, in the midst of a broken world.
For starters, I’m Mo!
If you’re a talk show fan, you may recognize me from my appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
If you’re a sports fan, you may recognize me from the collegiate sports scene. I was an All-American goalkeeper for the LSU Women’s Soccer team and the first female to ever tryout for an SEC, Division I Men’s Football team. (Geaux Tigers!) I was also crowned LSU’s 2011 Homecoming Queen.
A really neat highlight in my athletic career was when I famously scored a 90-yard goal. Want to see?
While I was in school, I also created a fun YouTube series called “Meaux Vs.” and took on some of LSU’s top athletes in a handful of friendly competitions. You can watch the entire “Meaux Vs.” series on YouTube, but first watch me challenge the Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu.
Who do you think won?
While my athletic endeavors were thrilling, my personal journey was quite the opposite. My young life was riddled with adversity and unexpected tragedy. I struggled with a debilitating eating disorder, suffered through the suicide of my father, and survived a horrific car accident—all in a few years time.
Take a glimpse at a longer version of my personal testimony…
Where does that all lead? Well, I graduated from LSU with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications in 2011 and found my way back to Atlanta, Georgia not long after. Through the past few years, God has built a tremendous speaking, writing and blogging ministry that has lead me around the country—as well as internationally—speaking to churches, businesses, schools and communities. It has also opened doors for tremendous mission opportunities that have stretched from the homeless streets of Atlanta to the remote bush villages of Uganda to the impoverished slums of Costa Rica and beyond.
I’m currently writing my very first book through Baker Publishing Group, set to release August 15th of 2016, as well as juggling life as a wife to my smokin’ hot husband Jeremiah and providing the womb-and-board for our first sweet addition to the family, set to make it’s grand entrance in December of 2015!
As for the blog, well that’s where you come in. This site is completely and wholly devoted to you. My hope is that you will stay a while, get comfy and dig through my messy words. I believe in the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—the same Gospel that makes broken things BOLD and never fails to breathe life-saving Truth. We live in a broken, distracted, confusing world. It’s my hope you will find your way to my writings to help make sense of it all and to be challenged, encouraged and equipped with God’s Truth.
