Irritability

I’ve been home from training camp for a little over 3 weeks now. Everybody kept saying that the time in between training camp and launch was a very significant time. They had told us to not be so focused on launch and to try to remain present during this time at home. They said that if you’re in a constant state of looking forward to what’s ahead, you’ll miss what you’re currently in. I thought I was doing that. I thought I was staying present in my life at home.B

Criss Cross Applesauce

    Have you ever had someone receive a picture of you from Jesus? If you have not, it is one of the sweetest things that Jesus does between relationships with one another. He uses our relationships to be witnesses to one another, if we are willing to surrender and let Jesus work. Recently, Tucker, a very dear and sincere friend of mine received a picture of me from Jesus and shared it with me. Jesus had shown Tucker a snap of me sitting criss cross applesauce at the feet of Jesu

Dear Numbness

  Dear Numbness, This is the end for us. I choose feeling. I choose authenticity. I choose life. I am finished using the world to deny what the Lord created me to do; be a light to the world.  I am done suffocating my purpose with substances, people, and experiences.  It’s time for me to let you go because His vision for my life is more important than blurring mine. It’s time for me to let go of the fake sense control that actually controls me.  It’s

Three Weeks with Three People

I have been struggling as to to what to blog about and how to correctly portray our three weeks in Albania. It’s difficult to put into words experiences that forever changed my heart and perspective of His people. To try to give a little piece of our time in Albania, I've decided to tell you about 3 important people in this month of community. By no means are these the only people we met and built a relationship with, but I feel like their stories are the ones that need to be shared at thi

The Month I Fell in Love

When preparing for the Race, I would always break up our journey into 4 segments: 1st: India and Nepal 2nd: South Africa, Swaziland, and Mozambique 3rd: Latvia and Estonia 4th & final: Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam  Of the 4 segments, Europe, the third leg of my trip, seemed like a resting place to catch up on Western life in between the craziness of Africa and the heat of Southeast Asia. Honestly, I had absolutely no idea what the Lord had in store for these two months&hel

Recap with Video

What made me feel alive this month?Praying boldly up and down the residents' halls. Commanding the enemy to leave this place. Praying with my team out on the farm and singing the doxology amidst all the confusion and hurt. What was difficult this month? Why was it difficult?Wrapping my head around the pain going on inside me. It's hard for me to process, but so freeing when I finally let it out. It's difficult for me to surrender and trust. It takes heroic courage to trust when I can't unde

Endings and Beginnings

I often sit down to write a blog and come up with nothing. Well, it's not that I come up with nothing, it's that I come up with everything and there's no words I could ever write to describe what the Lord has done in my life over the past year. No matter how much I fill these pages, they still seem empty in comparison to the reality I know. I have seen many things both good and bad. I've seen people missing numerous limbs lying in the ground day afterday, crawling up an

Prior restraints upon speech are presumptively unconstitutional

Please remember this phrase; we might be seeing it more and more in the days to come as people of faith and good will are threatened by the courts with criminal sanctions for speaking, videos, books, blogs, online publications, (eventually perhaps Facebook posts and Tweets).

The phrase is: “Prior restraints upon speech are presumptively unconstitutional.”

It means that if they tell you you can’t speak, or what you can’t speak, or how you can’t speak it, they are breaking the law. This applies to law enforcement, courts, governmental agencies and presidents.

God Almighty Restore us, Renew us, Refresh us – A Prayer for the Week

As you can imagine getting ready for our annual retreat is not always a renewing and refreshing time for me, but this week I have deliberately taken time to make it so. This prayer is adapted from one I wrote several years ago to help me focus. It will be my morning prayer throughout the […]

God’s Way – Narrow Path or Wide Open Blessing?

I have just been out in the garden watering, my favourite evening chore as I get to enjoy the beauty of the fading light and the fresh smell of the garden. I also get to enjoy the delight of picking tomatoes and squash, savouring the exquisite flavour of cherry tomatoes that somehow end up in […]

The One

The One I Will Never Forget The one who touched my heart and broke it at the same time. Someone in need of my help, someone's help, a mother's help.  I have written about this "one" child before. An orphan child. A boy who was at the orphanage when I visited for Christmas in South Korea. I don't know his full name. But I still think about him and pray for him. For God to be his protective daddy and his comforting mother.  For this little precious boy to come to know Christ. To be fi

Training Camp Destroyed My Expectations

Describing training camp in words, especially through a blog in a limited space, is just honestly not possible. I went in with expectations, however, they were all greatly exceeded. This is what I expected... 1. I expected to sweat a little bit and be pretty hot since it was in Georgia. 2. I expected to meet the people I would be traveling with and make friendships. 3. I expected the staff to tell us where to go and what to do. 4. I expected our squad mentors and squad leaders to be pretty c
