Why should addicts avoid new relationships with members of the opposite sex in the first year of recovery?

For addicts, real lasting change occurs only after a long and often painful process of self discovery.  Becoming involved in a romantic relationship too early is a sure fire way to short-circuit the process.  It is actually one of the most frequent causes of relapse.

Just one of my cool squadmates :)

This is Victoria.  She walks in wisdom and confidence in who she is and who the Father has made her to be. Every time she speaks, she teaches me something new. She is just one of those people you want to be around. She has the best laugh. She is joyful and pursues others around her the way the Father pursues her. She has shown me so much love since being on the Race. I am so grateful I get to call her a friend, but also a sister.  I asked her if we could sit down and just talk abou

Yellow Daffodils

Daffodils represent forgiveness, new beginnings and a rebirth. Daffodils are grown from bulbs and readily return each spring, signifying the end of winter and a new season beginning. They also represent happiness and are meant to be given in a bouquet, as giving a single daffodil denotes misfortune. To tell someone "I'm sorry" or "Please forgive me," give them a bouquet of daffodils. In doing so, you are telling them that you wish to put away the past and begin a new season that is full of happi

Comparison is a Thief of Identity

For the past week, I have been in Baños, Ecuador for a squad debrief of month one of our race. During this time, we have rested, adventured, discussed, processed, and learned. Something that really resonated with me was a teaching on comparison. This lesson was based around scripture that pretty much blew my mind.  14 “Even so, the body is not made up of one part but of many.15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,&r

When money doesnt matter

Ok. Money is a big deal. But what happens when people act like it isnt in order that you have what you need? . When i started off to leave for the race i had no money.I left for the airport and my aunt stuffed 120 bucks in my pocket and thats what i had for the race. Disclaimer:«beside $500 in my account that wasnt supposed to be spent on anything less than for an emergency if and in case anything happened!» For off days, for treating myself, for buying souvenires (i decided i

Month 1: PHILIPPINES

I just wanted to give you an update on where me and my team are and what the Lord has put on my heart. We made it safely on Thursday to Manila, which is the capital of the Philippines. We are so blessed to have such an amazing place to stay for our first month of ministry. While we are here we will be working with Kids International Ministries also known as KIM. Some of the needs here at KIM include: Working at the children’s home- While the children are in school we have the opportunity

When I'm unfaithful, God is always faithful

Part one of a two part blog... It's a good one, don't let the my long-winded posts turn you away!   God preformed a miracle in a Starbucks. The same Starbucks my squad and I visited daily for two weeks while in Lima, Perú. Every day we were greeted by the same sweet smiles of these familiar baristas. 30 gringos can be overwhelming but they tried their very best to speak english and even had immense patience for our not-so-great spanish (taking ownership for this one). I

Hopped off the plane in Johannesburg with my pack and my mandolin.

Hello all!! It’s been a while, but with limited WiFi and zero service it’s been pretty hard to post. Thanks to the Lord’s unfailing provision and my supporters generosity, I am in Nsoko, Swaziland. It has been wonderful!!! Here’s a little insight on my race so far, because in just a month I already have so many amazing things to share. So, here are some of the many good times I’ve had since I left home. Last lunch in the US of A with my dawgz. (Yea of course it was

A month of tears

One of the things I get asked the most frequently is what is God teaching me. In short emotions. But for a deeper look, God has been teaching me how to feel emotions here that I wouldn’t normally feel at home. As soon as I got here I realized very quickly what god was trying to show me. At home I run from unpleasant emotions- I’ve been doing it my whole life. I used Netflix, and social media as a way to distract myself from what I was feeling and I was coping with that in a very unhe

Let's Change The World!

Friends + Family:   If you know me well, you know that I am passionate about my faith and about business. For most of my life, it seemed that I could not combine these two. When I was younger my favorite pastime was pretending to run a business. I’ve had a job since the age of 16. I love to work. But I often felt unfulfilled. What was missing was a sense of purpose. What was missing was the merging of my deep desire to help others and my passion for business.   Within the pa

Impact Africa

Hello from Johannesburg, South Africa!! Cannot believe it’s already month three of the world race. This journey has been so very incredible, and cannot begin to thank everyone that got me here. God has been speaking to me so much lately. It’s funny how a week of great ministry plus little distractions equals lots of one on one time with God. This month my team plus another team is working with Impact Africa. The work we get to do is go into squatter camps and share Jesus with
