Prayers for Good Friday 2014

It is already Good Friday in Australia, New Zealand and parts of Asia so I wanted to get these Good Friday prayers up early. May we all enter into this day with heaviness of heart for the high cost of redemption. It is finished. The procession begun in triumph with shouts of acclamation. Hosanna, Hosanna!(...)

Forever, Not Forsaken by Linda Bonney Olin

About three o’clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46 (NRSV) As I worked on a dramatic monologue and songs featuring Mary Magdalene, an image of Mary’s grief-stricken face haunted me. I heard her hollowly echoing Jesus’ words, over(...)


So it's been one month since I blogged last.  I have to admit I've seem to come down with some writers block as I am struggling with topics to blog about. So I am asking for some inspiration.  What are some questions do you have about the World Race? What's life like? What are we actually doing?   What are questions you have for me?  What are my favorite things about the race? What am I struggling with?   So ask away!  I will follow up in a few days with a blog

I am so excited to finish out the race and see what God is doing here in Africa. God is so amazing and is showing that to us every day! 

Month 9: Romania

I find myself struggling to write a blog about Romania but here is a quick update on last month.  Romanian was a different month for me. Instead of being out and about talking about Jesus, playing with kids, or doing manual labor. I was inside, sitting at my computer, building a website for our contact. I enjoyed it but I don't have any interesting stories to tell you about.  Another reason Romania was different was because we found out our travel plans back to the States&h

Ode to Family

I don't know why it still amazes me that listening to certain songs can spark such strong memories. I've been listening to a lot of Hanson lately. They were my favorite musical group growing up so as my iPod shuffled through their songs it only makes sense that I would relive moments of my childhood. Singing Mmbop on the swing set in elementary school. Practicing choreography with my cousin Hannah in an upstairs room of our grandparents old farmhouse. And attending a couple of Hanson concerts w

Help Me Come Home!!

So I've only been able to raise $20 so far for my plane or bus ticket home from Chicago, so if you would like to support me in this way, you still can. Just visit my PayPal account at little bit helps. Please pray with me for God's provision. Thank you again for all of your support!    43 days and counting! &n

A Little EXTRA in the ORDINARY

One important lesson I have learned on the World Race is that God loves surprises!  He loves to put a little extra something into the ordinary and set divine appointments for us.  Many times, I lack seeing this because I'm stuck with black and white vision when Jesus is calling me to see the rainbows. Let me be honest with you- ministry on the race isn't always exciting.  Sometimes you get to love on sweet little orphans and sometimes you don't.  Sometimes you feel like a li

Catching Up

So my mom has been hounding me about writing a new blog. Its been a little over 4 months since my last one... so I guess shes right. I won't bore you with tons of details, but I do want to throw in a few updates on the months I haven't blogged about! Swaziland – December – Month: Six

Swaziland was my favorite month on the race so far (and being that I'm currently in month 10 in Malaysia, it might be for the whole race!) Meeting Yogi (my like minded amigo from South Africa), Racha
