Welcome to our website! I’m Destinee and I’m the founder of She Rises Up, a place for encouragement, inspiration and motivation for your personal journey with God.

I am an introvert, through and through, single mom of 4 crazy kids, middle child and only girl of 3.  I love music and spoken word. Christian rap and rock seem to be my go to right now, though I can listen to most anything… but country.



My hobbies include playing the guitar, singing (not good enough to quit my day job) and writing poetry.

My favorite food is Chinese. I’m a huge sugar addict and love strawberry, lemon and chocolate desserts.

I was born and raised right here in Albuquerque, NM (yes, New Mexico IS in the USA). I adore our beautiful mountain ranges, great weather and starry night skies.

I’ve had a few rough times in my life and have dealt with depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts… Read my testimony here!

I love God! I want to make him known to unbelievers and I want to help other Christian women grow in their walk and find their purpose in Him.
