I Was Robbed... This is the Story

  Now, I guess this story actually starts in 2012 when I went to Kenya with my college group from my church in Oklahoma. I had never had spiritually significant dreams until that July. Little did I know, the dream God gave me influence my life 3 years later. Towards the end of this dream, there was a person in a cloak whom I was running past. They dropped something, so I went back to help them. I quickly realized this person intended harm so I ran to the vehicle I had been on my way to. I

15 Years In The Making

  The thought process of the girl that left back in January went something like this: "Oh, yay! Panama is our month 5--it'll be kind of like America, so it'll be like a little refresher month before the second half of the Race, right!?"   I'm pretty sure the 7-year-old me wouldn't have approved of that girl.. 7-year-old me knew God gave me a desire for missions in Latin America, and she dreamed of a future me who would let nothing stand in the way of her relationship with God and

Month 11: China Update and Summary

  Here we go. This is it. The last update. It is so crazy that it is the last day of Month 11 and that tomorrow I will posting this update from the U.S. Like seriously I don’t even know if I believe it. It has been such a crazy adventure. Think about this. By the time I get back to Georgia, I’m taking a quick detour in Seattle to visit my family there, I will have literally circumnavigated the world. A full 360 degrees. That alone is mind boggling, not to mention all that has h

Spend a Day With ME!

16,273.00. That is a lot of money right there. It is a staggering price for a mission trip. I know you are all thinking it. I was thinking it too, until I learned what all the money for this trip is going towards. This money covers most of my expenses for close to a year! It includes: 

Plane Tickets: Plane tickets to and from 3 different continents!  

Other Transportation costs: I can't tell you what that is going to be. But I am sure it will include tra

I Won't Miss the Real Thing

I absolutely love weddings. No, I’ve got to be honest here: I cry during weddings. Like a blubbering babe. I love weddings so much because like invitations to another ceremony, they point so powerfully beyond themselves to eternity—to the marriage of Christ and His bride, the Church. One of the things I knew I’d be surrendering to the Lord as I committed to the Race was missing the weddings of three of my best friends—Taylor Klopatek (today), Tyler Weavers (June), and

I Am God's Mouthpiece

I have discovered something about myself. I love going to church in Spanish. I mean, obviously I have a passion for the language (Why else would I be on the All-Spanish Route?), but there's just something special about a Spanish-speaking church. It's like every time I walk through the doors for a service, God transcends the little English box I tend to keep Him in, and I get to see how His Church reaches further than I could ever imagine. This isn't exactly a new idea for me, though. I'd say it

C.S. Lewis, the good Christian Liberal

It’s sometimes hard for people to get my take on C.S. Lewis, not because I’m ambivalent but because he was complicated and I’m a theological conservative. It’s my thinking that theological conservatives should be able to appreciate the greatness that God sometimes bestows upon theological liberals and outright pagans without giving them a golden halo or the keys to the church. I read Lewis; I appreciate Lewis; I’ve learned a lot from Lewis; but could never think of him as Pastoral or a spiritual guide. He was not an officer of the church but in my reading of him, he saw that was not his calling.

A Prayer for Pentecost 2015

Pentecost is almost with us.

Dear anonymous donor...

Dear anonymous supporter, Thank you SO much for your very generous donation. I am greatly humbled  by your belief in this trip, in me, and in the work World Race is doing. Before your donation, I was struggling to believe I would have enough money to get past my first fundraising check point coming up in July. Your kind heart has perfect timing.    I selfishly pray that someday you reach out to me to let me know who you are. I want to buy you coffee, thank you for your support a

The Anticipation

The Race is winding down. I'm down to less than two months left on this awesome journey.And the anticipation of what The Lord has for me when I get back home is building. I don't know what there is back in the States.I mean, I have a general direction that I'm starting to head in--CGA, but I'll talk about that a little later. But other than that, I don't know what The Lord really has for me. And it's exciting, but terrifying at the same time.Sometimes with the anticipation of what may happ

What God is Teaching Me through the Joplin Tornado

So today marks 4 years since an EF-5 tornado ripped through Joplin, Missouri and devastated everything in it's path. I remember that day well...My roommate and I had spent the night in our new apartment. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and Steph fixed us scrambled eggs for our first breakfast together in the new to us place. Steph was headed to NW Arkansas to help some girls from our dorm get settle at Camp War Eagle and I was headed to church in Oronogo, Missouri (about 30 min. North
