Hi! So glad you’re here. Here’s a little bit about me…
I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington, and in 2002, met, fell in love with, and married my husband Paul (aka Paul Hot Andrew) in Sydney, Australia where I lived for nearly 10 years. My first three children were born on Aussie soil - pretty much back to back - 3 kids under the age of 3 (I’m sweating again just thinking about it). In May of 2010, our family sold almost everything we owned, bar a few keepsakes and clothes of course, packed up our lives and moved to New York City to establish Liberty Church, now a growing church with multiple communities in the city and beyond. We weren’t done having kids just yet, until the one and only American born Samuel Malachi came in to our lives in 2012 (Sam for President). We currently reside in Brooklyn, New York with our four children, Ezekiel (Zeke) Benjamin, Jesse Freedom, Finley Grace, and Samuel Malachi.
I love (in no particular order), date nights, being a momma, Taco Tuesday, going to the movies with the fam (popcorn with extra butter and peanut M&Ms - always), good reports at our Staff Meeting, dancing at weddings until they kick me off the dance floor, a good historical fiction novel that makes me cry, worship, baking, long deep chats that bring change and revelation, reconciliation, the Word of God, prayer, hosting parties (when I’m not feeling introverted), Central Park in Fall, walking my dog in our neighborhood, vacation with my crew, building the church in any way I can, writing, creating, 80’s music, working out (thank goodness for Daily Burn) coffee, kombucha, green juice and trying new food.
I have a genuine passion to see the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ outworked in our everyday lives whether that’s in the midst of doing homework with my kids, praying for a friend, showing up (wherever, whenever, for whomever), teaching and equipping through the Word of God, or throwing a party to break bread and come together.
A few other fun things: In the Spring of 2015, I founded the She Is Free Conference with an amazing crew of men and women that I love running with. We have the privilege of gathering each year in NYC, now in the Fall, to equip and activate women to walk in freedom, spirit, soul, and body, and see others set free in their sphere of influence. I’ve had the opportunity to write 2 books, She Is Free and Fake or Follower, with more in my heart to come. I recently started a podcast, Coffee With Andi where I get to talk to ridiculously amazing people and share the conversation with the world.
Currently, my life life is focused on raising my family, copastoring Liberty Church alongside my husband with the best team on earth, and traveling to invest into churches and lives all around the world.
