The fourth of five children, Heidi received all her schooling at home in Montana. When Heidi was seventeen, her older sister, Katrina, committed suicide after a two-year struggle with bulimia. Today, Heidi is passionate about sharing with young women truths that can help to set them free from wrong self-image and eating disorders. She is so grateful for the difference these truths have made – and continue to make – in her life. She has self-published a book about Katrina, “If Only You Knew.” Besides seeking to encourage other girls with a freeing understanding of true beauty, Heidi also appreciates chances to share with girls and guys how to stay pure and prepare for marriage during their single years.
Her happiest moments are wrapped up in being a wife, mother, and writer. She loves accompanying and supporting Jesse wherever he is invited to speak.
