Meditation Monday – Walking Is For Naming.

Our Celtic retreat is now less than a week away and as you can imagine I am frantically busy purchasing supplies, packing boxes, and finishing off those last minute details. For the last couple of years however, this has been a bitter sweet experience for me as it also marks the anniversary of my mother’s death […]

"Are you excited?"

As I have been slowly, but surely spreading the word about my newest adventure I keep hearing the same question over and over again … Are you excited? And truthfully, I never know how to respond.  I have such a wide range of emotions when I think about the Race, I don’t know how to properly answer people.  I know that no matter how hard I try to prepare, I won’t be ready.  I know this next year is going to be the toughest, most challenging yet most rewarding y

Q squad and the Baltic States

It seems like the sun never sets in the Baltic States. When Q squad arrived from southern Africa to our final destinations in Latvia and Lithuania on June 1st, we looked around at the empty streets and fields of flowers bathed in sunlight and wondered where everyone was. (This is what Latvia looked like for Paige: Latvia through the lens) “It’s almost 11 o’clock! At night!” We told each other in amazement. “Everyone must be sleeping already!” We soon d


I never thought I would get to the final month of the Race. It always felt so far away, and now it’s here! We are in month 11 and the Race will soon come to an end. Endings. They are kind of intimidating. When something ends it is over, it can’t be redone, the end is conclusive. There is a finality that comes with it. The end of the Word Race means the end of a season, the end of a year in which I have been challenged and encouraged in ways that I couldn’t have imagined, the e

More Than Just People

“If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies, how very different our ideals of beauty would be.” I stumbled across this quote a few years ago. Never did I know, at the time, how much I would apply it to my daily life. Everyday on the race I pass hundreds of people. Hundreds of lives that matter. Hundreds of souls that are searching for something more in life. Lately, I’ve started to stop and truly see people. Truly see souls instead of just bodies walking through the street

The Starting Line

Hello all... Here we are at debrief in Kathmndu, Nepal. The breath of fresh air and freedom I received landing in this country was nothing short of necessary. I have only begun processing everything from India, and as much as I want to apologize to all of you because I know you all want those stories, I know that it cannot be rushed. But, if you will allow me to, I would like to let you in a little bit to my heart. The Lord began a journey for me in India toward joy and peace; the journey wa


How do I sum up a month? The laughter, the tears, the friends made and lessons learned. I’ve had hard days, but only a few. A bad attitude, but not often. Small fights, but soon forgotten. I’ve eaten more carrot cake than I ever have in my life, swam with Great White Sharks, eaten ostrich, visited one of the seven wonders of the world, filled up an entire journal, written a new song,, led worship at a support group, repaired a broken relationship, prayed fervently, and loved deeply.

When Dancing Precedes Miracles

“I HAVE TO DANCE!” I suddenly felt the need to stand up from the table and scream those words as our team sat around, sipping on our morning coffee and discussing with our ministry contact Kaupo what our roles looked like that day. My team is living in a church this month in Võru, Estonia, and we do something different every day. We’ve been a part of three camps, help with the youth group, participate in church outreaches, etc. On this particular morning, Kaupo told us

a prayer over Jeffrey's Bay

Abba, I don't have the words to express my sorrow for the things I have come to know over the past month. Especially at Turning Point Camp.  I also don't have the words to express my deep hope and expectancy for change.  God, would you take your mighty and powerful hand and touch each and every life in this city. God, would you pour out your mercy ever so abundantly on those 44 lives we have come to know and love. Thank you for throwing the enemy out of that camp at the very instant w

Top 11 Photos from Africa

World Race Fusion went to Swaziland, Lesotho and South Africa for months 5-7. These are my top 11 photos from our time in ministry, adventure days, and debrief time. The group photo was taken the morning we said "see ya later" to our amazing alumni squad leaders Daniel, Diane and See Eun....and right before a 16 hour drive into the mountains of Lesotho in which we had to push our van up some of the mountains at midnight in 30 degree temperature.  For more photos, vi
