Hi, I'm Madi. I'm a literacy advocate,  author, and public speaker based out of Dallas, TX.

Currently:

My first children's book series, The Realm of Becoming, released in January 2022 is a best-selling, award-winning series.

I am the creator of a character education curriculum and program called Becoming Better. This curriculum is being used in 17 states across the U.S. I continue to advocate for the importance of education and literacy in schools through connections with legislators, advocacy groups, and the United Nations.

I have several novels that are works in progress (can I get an "Amen," from all my ADHD friends). One in particular that I am VERY excited about.

I am focused on writing my first nonfiction book, studying for my masters degrees, while I work full-time in marketing. I am running Becoming 31, helping young women around the globe create a life they are passionate about by becoming all they were created to be. I love faith, color, flowers, art, history, and travel. 

I've got a lot going on. But I wouldn't want it any other way.

 

I consider myself a really ordinary girl who doesn't want to live an ordinary life. 

 

I am a multi-passionate type of person and I am working towards a life where all those passions collide in a kaleidoscope of awesomeness. I'm still working on what that looks like- and I call that "the journey of becoming." Regardless of what I am doing, or where I am going, I want to live a really purposeful and passionate life. I want to become all I was created to be.

I would describe myself as a visionary big, picture thinker, with a lot of Leslie Knope energy who, at times, dreams seemingly crazy dreams. I cannot tell you the number of times that I have been told "that's a crazy dream. It will never happen." But then crazy dreams become reality.

At 21, I started a blog that has launched into an international nonprofit and women's ministry. At 22, I became an globally recognized public speaker. And at 24, I became an award-winning, best-selling children's author. Through some of the darkest times, I saw the Lord deliver on crazy dreams. He expanded my territory as I chased down who He created me to be.

 

One thing I have learned friends, is that we serve a very big God who tends to use really ordinary people to do crazy big things. Why? Because it brings more glory to Him. 

 

I want to run the race of life well- to bring God the most glory- and I want you to join me. Create a passionate and purposeful life with me, as together we become all we were created to be.
