Dog Songs by Mary Oliver

Don’t you love it when a friend gives you a book that is a delightfully rich discovery of humour, life and of course our shared love for dogs. Such is Mary Oliver’s poetry book Dog Songs. I highly recommend it, not just to my dog loving friends but to anyone who appreciates Mary Oliver, poetry or […]

WHY DID I CHOOSE THE WORLDRACE!

My family recently came to me concerned about doing the Worldrace. They told me how raising $17,000 is nearly impossible and how they don't think that I understand how much money that is. As I set there and listened to them tell me about all the people that are here in Columbus that need help, I started to wonder why did I choose the Worldrace.  That's when God basically gave me a Gibbs head slap (for all you people that watch my favorite TV show NCIS). He very quickly

What's Next?

So after traveling to 11 countries in 11 months, what do I do with my life? This is the totally valid question everyone asks. It’s the question I asked myself before I left the country last September. It’s complicated. God completely wrecked my heart for people. Especially the people no one sees. I want to see them. Because Jesus said what we do for the least of these, we do for Him. And now that I’ve seen, I can’t un-see. English class in a small, remote Cambodia v

How I feel about leaving on the World Race!

Ever since I got home from Training Camp I have been avoiding writing this post. When I first started this blog, I thought it was going to be an amazing experience to put things down on paper for others to read. I was so wrong. This is hard. I never would have expected blogging to be this hard for me because I am a fairly talkative and sometimes loud person. I love to talk to people! I love to hear about their lives and I love to share my life with them. I enjoy telling stories (even though mo

Come Home My Child

Coming out from ministry always grips my heart a little more with God's heart for the lost. It's like a realignment back to his perspective when everything and everyone is like a rushing by blur and we lose sight of what is important.   Today at the prostitute ministry we didn't really manage to 'do' much - the girls didn't want to come out to our office for a time of sharing or movie, nor were we able to share with Uncle. We first met Uncle last year in the brothels. He was one of the 'g

Interview a World Racer

This is my friend Arden. It's crazy how along this journey I have met people who have already attended the race and I know they have been specifically placed in my life. Don't ever underestimate the importance of moral/emotional support, because without it I wouldn't have made it this far. God has a hand in every area of this, and I am so grateful for that. 

How the World Race Found Me

The truth be told, I had never heard of the World Race or Adventure in Missions until Thursday, July 30, 2015.  I woke up that morning to God saying: "Today is the day to start preparing."  I didn't have a clue as to what I was supposed to be getting prepared for - but I turned my heart towards watching and listening, waiting to see what God had planned. Up until that point, I had been applying for internships at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM) in California.  I

The Road to Impossible

Most times people would rather take the easy route. It's understandable. We like to simplify things and make it easier to do, but God is anything but simply. He has to spell everything out for humans, who can explain how the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are 3-n-1? I'll let you think on that. The instructions God gives us as Christians sound easy and simple, but they become much harder when you try to follow them. In Matthew 22:39, the Bible reads "The second is like it, you shall love your

Fundraising

I am excited for the next few weeks of my fundraising! I am less than $1000 away from my first fundraising goal (thanks to all of those who have donated & supported me thus far!). I received an anonymous donation of $1,000 a week ago (THANK YOU!)-I almost fell out of my chair at work when I saw! My family has put together an outdoor fundraising event with games, raffles, and competitions to help raise money for my trip! We have gotten a lot of positive feedback and are expecting quite a few

Turn the World Upside Down

Somehow the Lord has lead me to this place. What?! A couple of months ago I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and saw a picture of a bunch of precious Indian children engulfing this beautiful woman of God in pure JOY. The picture was filled with color and you could imagine this happy dancing music in your mind while looking at it. I was drawn to the picture not only because of these things, but because I have had India on my heart for a while. So of course I start lurkin. For those of you
