In the Eye of the Storm

"When you don't move the mountains I'm needing you to move. When you don't part the waters I wish I could walk through. When you don't give the answers as I cry out to you. Still I will trust in you."   Lauren Daigle It's been over 256 days since I packed all of my "necessities" in a backpack and left on an adventure that would forever change how I viewed myself, how I viewed God, and how I viewed the world. For 8 months I had the privilege to live in a community that hungered for the thi

Tidal Wave

Y'all Gods love is FIERCE. I have been praying and trusting God to provide funds for the World Race, and this past week waves of love have crashed over me. I'm talking the BIG WAVES when you're at the beach, that you can't jump over... A tidal wave.  The song "Fierce" by Jesus Culture sums up this past week perfectly (take a listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=II1JKBuz-AY ) "Like a tidal wave / crashing over me / rushing in to meet me here / Your love is fierce" &n

Honesty. Transparency. Vulnerability. There's a Difference.

A few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have known there was a difference. I’d probably even use those words interchangeably. But a dear friend explained something to me that changed the way that I viewed these words. She used the analogy of a house. I am honest about that house when I tell you that the paint is chipping off a little, there are some missing tiles on the roof, and theres a hole in the pantry wall. Now you know about these things, which are true. But that is only me being honest.

God Breathe Life

by Christine Sine It’s allergy season here in the Pacific NW, and like so many of us, at times I find it hard to breathe. It’s not always fun, but I do find that it reminds me of the preciousness of breath and of the One who gives me breath. Of course this is not […]

Life in Vietnam

I am sure a lot of you were wondering what my life was like in Vietnam. There was not a lot I could say or post while I was there, because Vietnam is a closed country. But now, here we are in Cambodia. So let me tell you a little bit about my life back in Nam! We were working in a cafe where our ministry was hanging out with college students, and teaching English. But there were certain things we could not do. Like mention the name Jesus, ministry, or missionary. So...I was a, "tourist," or a,

Random Thoughts in Bolivia

This month I was in Bolivia and even though people on my team were sick, ministry was difficult to engage in with the intentionality we wanted, and we had no set plan really for the entire month, I had time to think and talk to God about some stuff on our many bus rides and Land Cruiser trips. So if you want a quick read here they are... 1. God will willingly make life suck so that you need to rely on Him for strength and perseverance. (I know we've all heard it a thousand times but it still su

The Fangs of Vulnerabilty

"Having the courage to show up and be seen and put yourself out there when you have no control over the situation: That's vulnerability. Vulnerability is the absolute prerequisite for badassery." - Brené Brown Right now I am reading Brené Brown's book Daring Greatly. It is about choosing to be courageously vulnerable - how vulnerability isn't a weakness, it is a strength.  As y'all know, this is something I have been learning on the Race. I've been learning how to be more op

Dear End of World Race Me, Part 5

5/25/16 Dear End of World Race Me, Month 5 ends in just a few days. Thailand has been a long month, but overall a good one. THis month has been a month where I would say you plateaued. Not that you haven’t grown, or that you expect to grow, but it the going from 60mph to 10mph without slowing down really. It makes things feel shaky to you. I want you to know something, there are going to be roadblocks in life, theoretical walls to hit, and that’s Okay. Just because there is a wall

Maps

Okay, I am sorry.  I should have made a lot more posts than I have by now, but I just don't know what to say.  I haven't done anything spectacular and I haven't left for the Race yet, what I could I possibly have to say?  Nobody wants to read about my life as a high school student (actually I graduated one week ago, but that is beside the point), going through the motions week by week.  I'm just waiting for training camp, and then I'll be waiting for launch. Well. God called

Stepping out on Faith/Facing the Giant

I need your help. I know HE can do it, but HE wants to use more than just me on this one. It's going to take all of us. Partner me and I promise you at the end, we will all go home with our hearts full and our eyes open! I have $5,000 to raise. Right now I am under $1000 and that number is constantly rising as long as the support is racing. Run with me on this race by giving a donation. I can't do this without you. The giant is on the hill. He's looking down at us. Will you stand with me an

Reality Hit

Today I graduated high school. Cool, right? Huge accomplishment? I mean, I guess so. But while most seniors were sitting in that auditorium, they were thinking "This is it, school is done. Finally." Yes... I thought that too. But then, reality hit me. Walking through those crowds of people... I realized I knew no one. I mean, I have my individual groups of friends, and of course I'm close with them... But there were too many unknown faces. I couldn't help but feel disappointed that I didn't get

UNFORGIVENESS

Matthew 6: 14-15 "For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Wow--that's a heavy verse. Forgiveness is a hard thing to do, but we have to remember that forgiveness is for you and not for them. These past few weeks I have really had to step back and look at the unforgiveness in my heart. First things first, m grandad as getting married and I was devas

I'm Going Back

As most of you have seen through social media or personally, I am home early from The World Race. A lot of you have questions as to why I chose to come home early and not stay for the last three months and I have answers. As plainly and simply as God put it to me, I am going to put it to you all.       As we were at a time of restoration in Thailand, God began to push me to more freedom in Him. I was all for it and wanted nothing more and so I said yes to this freedom and do
