Acorn Faith

Kristen Kludt — Excerpt from her new book, A Good Way Through.  Available now! In my experience of Los Angeles, everyone who lives there, regardless of years, seems young. You have to be resilient, creative, and perhaps just a little bit self-focused to survive there. On my first day of teaching, just after we had […]

Thanks God for constant comfort!

“I need you to trust in me, I will provide for every aspect of life if you simply TRUST in me and the peace I can provide.”- those are the words that I kept hearing while taking a nap today and hearing the voice of the Lord so clearly, dang is He cool.   So this week has been stressful and I'm really not sure how to explain it. I have to get my wisdom teeth out next month or things could get bad. I had an appointment here where they told me a tooth is infected and I need all

The Day I Jumped Off the Side of a Mountain

This month I ran off the side of a mountain and I flew. I had complete faith in a man I had never met and a parachute to keep me safe. I knew the risk was worth the adventure. As we floated higher, the world seemed so beautiful. My pilot told me to sit back and enjoy the ride. I had given up control and all I could do was try and take in as much beauty as my senses would allow. We soared through the clouds (literally. I sat in a stinking cloud!) and with every passing moment I could feel my wor

Rebellious At Heart

Africa is over.What.HasHappened. I’m struggling right now to write the words in my mind and heart on this blog post – because so many various things – internally and externally – have happened in my past three months of living life in Africa… So many heart breaks that The Lord has gently led me to that have constantly reminded me to look back on these past three months with such awe and tears of the faithfulness of my Heavenly Father… Despite all the diffic

I Brought The Word Five Times in One Day

“There are three things I want us to notice about this story.” I had just finished reading the story of Jesus healing a paralytic in John 5, my go to story when the ministry host says, “And one of you will be preaching.” I had shared this sermon in church the week before and was using it again in a hospital waiting room in the week before Christmas. My team was doing hospital evangelism, something that was difficult for many of us to swallow. Yet there I was, sharing how

Will You Help?

I will be with my Passport team in Zambia, for another month, volunteering at the Maramba Old People's Home and Amazing Grace Pre School. In April, we will all go to Botswana to work with Delta Cross, evangelizing in villages and sharing the gospel through children's ministry. I need to raise $1785 to remain on the field. Are you able to help?You can help to support me and this ministry by clicking the SUPPORT ME! button on the right side of your screen. Any help you can give, will be $1 closer

things to know for pvt

parents, here are some tips & tricks for pvt: 1. we have much lower standards since leaving the states. don't be alarmed. somewhere deep down is the sweet, well-mannered child you raised.  2. download, type in santiago, chile & download the city. you can change the settings to spanish and kilometers so it can direct the taxi driver exactly to where you need to go. make sure you save places (housing, food, etc.). the option to save will show up if you tap on the locati

Reflections and Gratitude

Hi, World. I’m sorry it has been almost three months since I’ve written anything, and I’m thankful to all of you who have continued to wonder and pray as you waited. I’ve found it more difficult this time to carve out space to write, but I’ve been reminded lately of the power these stories carry and that they’re for the people who read them just as much as they are for those of us actually living them. There are stories of God’s faithfulness in both Ecua

Why I refuse to be the future

  A few days ago I sat in on a lecture at a worship arts conference.  It was a panel discussion involving three young pastors and a large room filled with Baby Boomers and Gen X’ers trying to figure out the impossible – The Millennial.     How do we get them to continue coming to church? What kind of music do they like? Should we have a later service? Maybe we could try being more eclectic? How do I minister to young people without them thinking they’re

The start of my days

Today, as it has become a beautiful habit, I woke up very early in the morning to start the day spending time with my Father (you can take everything away from me, but you will never take from me my time with Him!). The weather forecast says that there is 100% chance of rain and rarely enough it seems like they are right. A heavy rainstorm is going on outside and the temperature is really cold (something that I really did not expect coming into Africa). I make myself a hot cup of coffee, eat a b
