My Favourite Thanksgiving Prayers

I have been posting thanksgiving prayers and quotes on the Light for the Journey Facebook page all week and thought that you might enjoy some of my favourites. Don’t forget to check out my thanksgiving liturgy for this year too. Let me start with my favourite thanksgiving scriptures: Psalm 95 Psalm 100 Psalm 136 Colossians […]

When You Feel Like Going Home

I wrote a blog to my squad about eight months ago, describing how fearless we all were; about how we were strong and determined. We were Dauntless. Well now I feel called to write another. It's a little difficult because I'm on a bus right now and I get crazy motion sickness. But this is urgent. So please take the time to read it. D-Squad, this is for you.   I want you to know how proud of you I am. I'm proud of you for hanging on; hanging on for dear life. This ride is not easy

First 12 hours in America-Happy Thanksgiving

It's 2 am, Thanksgiving morning. I am sitting all alone in a hotel in New York City. Only on four 1 1/2 hour naps in the past 48 hours, I should be tired and sleeping, but instead I am wide awake. I am wide awake because in less then 12 hours I will be seeing my family for the first time since the beginning of January, or I am wide awake because today marks the end of a life changing experience on the World Race. It's hard to believe that eleven months ago, had only been to one country besides

Saying goodbye to The Philippines

Goodbyes suck, and when I say that I don't mean it lightly. As my time in the Philippines comes to a close I am overwhelmed with sadness. The people I've met have made a lasting impact on my life. Yesterday, I had to say goodbye to a man named Art and his six kids at the Monday morning tent city feeding, if you know me at all you know I am obsessed with this little family, and you will also know that I am horrible at goodbyes. A little background on Art is that his wife works at a meat factory i


This year I am feeling especially thankful. It's thanksgiving, I am home in The States and I can't help but be overwhelmed by the amount of thanks I have to give. Some have said "I bet you appreciate the little things so much more now" and I have to argue that they are not little things. I returned home in August and was welcomed by the viral "ice bucket challenge" which to me, was my shower for the past year. For this reason, I am so thankful for my shower each and every day. I am thankful

Mother of 30

Buzz... Buzz... Buzz. It's dark and quiet... My thumb quickly runs across the screen of my iPhone to silence my phone alarm so I don't wake anyone else up. My feet quietly make their way to the floor. Walking to the mirror to fix the mess of my hair... I stared as I twisted strands around to make it look somewhat presentable. "You are no longer a girl, but a woman. A mother." I thought as I looked at the mirror. I am a mother, not to a family of my own but a group of thirty teenage girls. This m

Month 3 Update: Nicaragua

I decided to do my ministry update a bit different this month. So here it is! Ministry Contact: Mama Eva Location: San Bernardo, Nicaragua Living Arrangements: The five of us stayed in a room together in our ministry contact's home. We had beds, hot showers and real bathrooms. The house was cement and open and airy. There were a lot of bugs and sometimes a mouse, but we also had a yard and a place to hang our hammocks and it was really cool at night to sleep. Food: Our contacts had someone f


Happy Thanksgiving!!! I am thankful for all of my supporters! I still can’t believe I’m fully funded. You guys rock. Whether you read this blog, pray for me, or financially support me. I’m enjoying Thanksgiving in Zambia, I don’t think I’ve ever sweat this much on thanksgiving day. I’ve been to the pool, and will soon enjoy a thanksgiving meal at a fancy hotel. The owner is an American and invites people to enjoy Thanksgiving at his hotel every year. I miss my

Happy Thanksgiving

Today is one of my all time favorite days. A day filled with loads of delicious food, family, laughs, cooking, naps, and football games. This year will not be like any other Thanksgiving, as I am miles and miles away from my family, the games and laughs are going to be quite different. What I love is that there are still many things to be thankful for on this day and every day of my life. Here are the ones that come to my mind: 1. God and how He continues to reveal Himself to me. Who He is, and
