You don’t have to be pretty

You Don’t Have to Be Pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”.

We Were Created For Change

A couple of days ago I wrote a post Visions in an Empty Glass following an amazing God moment at church. I continue to savour the images that experience generated for me. God moments like this are not to be taken lightly or dismissed quickly. I am also savouring the new images that post has stirred, finding(...)

It's about time!

Well! I sure took my sweet time with this first post but here it is:   I used to think that missionaries were stupid.  I just didn’t understand why someone would want to give up all the comforts and safety of home and the company of family and friends to travel to a faraway place where nothing was familiar.  This view was due to a misconception and poor understanding of who God is and what He did for me.  Then I went to Haiti when I was 16, and God shattered everythin


Three things:   How did I get here?   I finished my race in May of this year. I thought at one point, I was going straight back to India post race to be a momma to some of the sweetest boys in the WHOLE world. God had other plans for the next season. For the first time in my life, I was consulting with God on what was next. Although I was heartbroken to think of not going to see my sweet boys, I decided to listen. I decided to trust God that He knew better. God said, “This is

I'm going to...

Alrighty people. I know you have been waiting to hear where I will be leading a trip to this fall and here it is! PERU Yes, I will be leading a group of 8 girls to Nauta, in the jungle of Peru, right on the Amazon river. We will be building relationships through personal strengths, involvement in local church and local ministries such as: soccer, orphanage, schools, street evangelism, village and river ministry. We will be living in a village right on the river and building close-knit relation

Strawberries and such!

Hello Friends!  I have to apologize, I am not the best at this blogging thing but today I felt the tug to write so here I am.  I have had the last two days off of work, filled with errands and appointments before I leave. Yesterday we got word when we will need to be in Atlanta September 6th, I was jumping for joy when I found out, I am so excited for this journey to officially begin and so excited to see my teammates again, dang I miss them like crazy!  At training camp t

So you're wrong about some stuff? That's ok

I'm going to be as honest as I can and reveal my heart as best as I understand it on this blog. Some of my friends/family that are reading this may already know the "tendency" I have to be pretty hard on myself. Yes, it's a good thing to work hard, strive for something, put your efforts towards things that are important and meaningful. If all of your efforts weigh you down and it is done out of a place of independence, self-reliance, and to just grin and bear it, that's not how Je

Support Letter

Here is the support letter I am sending out to family and friends to ask they partner with me as I prepare for the World Race. Thank you in advance for making this opportunity possible for me. I appreciate your prayers, encouragement, and financial contributions. Dear Family and Friends, As many of you know, I have had been blessed to help set up and help run Raising Hope Foundation which has given me the opportunity to spend four summers in Ghana; serving those less fortunate than myse

I can't do this Alone

Over the past few weeks I have transitioned from one work station to another. I am currently still learning all the Ins and Outs of logistics, but there is one thing that I have learned recently that I believe God has been trying to teach me for a while. YOU CAN'T DO THIS ALONE! I have struggled and powered through most of my assignments and to my coworkers surprise managed to get everything done without collapsing. God has been slowly and steadily teaching me that I can do things accomplish s

Mongolia Recap Video!!

Hey Team!

It seems like I was writing just yesterday about heading to Mongolia, and now I'm sitting on the floor of the Bangkok airport writing this blog. It is truly crazy how fast this trip is flying by. 

Team Change had a great month in Mongolia. We were split up again this month and lived with different host homes. The guys stayed with a family in a house in a urban area within the city. This family, Batgeral (We called him Batman), Yanjmaa, and their son Baaska were
