Prayer Request

I just wanted to take a minute to ask you all to be praying some specifiv prayer for me and over me for the next 6 days.   I will be doing 7 days of the Daniel Fast wiith another person on my team.  Fasting is a discipline that I wanted to grow in when I started the World Race.  I have had several opportunities to fast in many areas.  Each time I have fasted I have seen the Lord show up in amazing ways not only in my personal life and journey but with others.   Having

11 things in 111 days.

I missed the “I’ve been on the Race for 100 days” mark, so I decided to make being on the Race for 111 days a big deal and share with you 11 things that I’ve learned so far on this journey... 1. Being on the World Race does not mean that every day is crazy awesome and full of fun adventures, but it can be if you make it that way. Don’t spend so much time waiting for the big moments that you miss out on the small moments. The what seem like small moments are just as

Cambodia Wrap-Up Video!

The first ever 'Unsung Heroes Video' created by my beautiful teammate and dear friend, Ana Maria! Our month in Cambodia was a blast and I could not have asked for a better start to an amazing journey with Jesus. We literally entered the month with a blank page, but the Lord has been faithful in scripting whom we'd meet, whom we'd speak with, and whom we'd invest in for lasting relationships.

Enjoy the video!!! :)

 

He's Romancing Me

Every day, He's captivating my heart a little more.With every breath I breathe, there's something new and exciting He shows me--whether it's another one of His attributes, or it's something beautiful He wants me to see.The other morning, my alarm went off at 6:31, but I wasn't quite ready to get out of bed. So I just laid there, chatting with The Lord about my dreams I had that night. And it was almost as if someone pulled my eyes open a couple minutes later, because there was something I just h

I Went to Heaven Today...

Yeap…you read that right. I have hesitated to release this post, but alas, the Good Lord has urged my heart once again. I feel like I am taking a big risk here, but the peace that I have surpasses everything at  the moment…and so here this goes. What I am about to share with you is not because I am a super-Christian or blessed any more than anyone else. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is in you if you are saved and about to be in you ask (Romans 10:9, If you dec

Heart Holes and Sportsing in Foreign

I realize that I never blogged last Tuesday. Or Friday. Or the Friday before that. I apologize. My team decided to take a week-long wifi-break and it really messed with my schedule. Also the fact that our house switched up the wifi schedule really messed with my schedule. Literally. Now instead of having wifi on Tuesdays and Fridays, I have it on Mondays and Thursdays. So there's that. But anyway, I went with a group of nine people (five of whom were from my team) to see the Mayan ruins at Tika

Karaoke Bars

Sex trade. The words don't get easier to say or understand. There are karaoke bars everywhere as we drive through parts of the city. Girls, all done up, sometimes looking to be teenagers, sometimes a dozen or more sit at the entrance to one place.   But once in the karaoke bar men may have a line of women come into their private room. The girls are numbered, they don't even have the dignity of having a name. They are chosen based in the man perverted lusts and desires. They are not j

Christian Life Simplified

Nothing can separate us from Your love....Romans 8:39 And who am I to deserve this love? Well, I was a nobody, but now, now I am the daughter of a King. So yes I am a somebody to somebody. And I’m not just a somebody, I’m everything to somebody. And that somebody is the God of the universe. You don’t think He is big enough to love everyone like that? Your brain isn’t big enough to comprehend what He is capable of, so I understand because my brain isn’t big enough

Part One: God, You Threw Me a Curve Ball

Before training camp I was excited for The Race, but school overpowered my thoughts. This made The Race seem like a distant dream of the future. I found myself thinking about it, but thinking about it like you might think of graduating from college as a freshman in high school…it just did not seem real. The weeks leading up to camp were hectic. I had to finish a whole weeks worth of school a whole week early while I’m taking a whole lot of classes (16 credits). I probably wrote abo

Math, Art, and Why We Share the Gospel

One of the things that I think about on The World Race is "what are we doing here?".  I don't think about it in a the sense that I don't know - because I know it in part, but I want to dig deeper into that question.  "What are we really doing here?"  Why are we in Thailand or Cambodia or, wherever, working with people who have a different native tongue, people that don't look like us.  Why are we here with these people that think so differently as a culture; "What are we real

Monday Meditation – Attached to God By A String

God in heaven holds each person by a string. When you sin, you cut the string. Then God ties it up again, making a knot – and thereby bringing you a little closer to him. Again and again your sins cut the string – and with each knot God keeps drawing you closer and closer.(...)

7 Characteristics Pastors Can Learn from Peyton Manning

Stadium Lights

Sunday night I, like many of you, watched Peyton Manning (Quarterback of the Denver Broncos) set an all-time record for most touchdowns in NFL history. As I celebrated his achievement and performance, I reflected on what makes Peyton so special and what we, as pastors, can learn from him.

Atonement and Why it is Necessary

This blog is related to my above blog "Math, Art, and Why We Share the Gospel" and gives a brief explanation of atonement, what it is, and why it is necessary: To first learn about what atonement is it is helpful to start in Genesis when Adam and Eve eat fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  From this point on, every human on earth has known both good and evil and all have chosen evil on some level, whether it be a great amount of evil or just a small amount of evil. &nbs
