The general yuckiness that is associated with this word has given me quite a bit of trouble! You are the Loser. You have lost the battle. You were unable to bear the burden and had to give up. Quitter.   Over and over I felt that shudder almost as painful as the battle itself as I tried to convince myself to surrender to the will of God. I tried to bargain, argue, or run away from this commandment. If I just pray a little more, maybe He will change His mind... If I do XYZ then maybe G

Postcard from Spain

1st Country- Spain! ¡Hola! ¿Que tal? Greetings from Spain. I have visited the city with the running of the bulls! The Camino was difficult, but now it is over. Walking with the same people day after day, then saying “goodbye” - that is the hardest part. I am spending the day in Burgos. Many “holy moments” along the since this morning, & thousands more since I left Los Estados Unidos. I hope you are well. Feel free to pray & respond if willing. =)

Lightsabers take Lightforce

Hey everyone! I cant believe this will be my LAST ministry update! Tomorrow (Monday) is our last ministry day for the entire race. WHAT! It doesn’t feel real. On Tuesday we will pack, and on Wednesday we will make our way to final debrief. We will spend a few days ‘debriefing’ the race, then we fly to America. As I’ve mentioned before, I will be spending some time on the east coast before heading back to Oregon on September 1st. As you know, my team 'Team Lightsabers' h

It's Time to Rewind.

Have you ever gone through seasons of your life that happened SO FAST that you really didn’t get a chance to process them properly? Well that has definitely happened to us throughout this year. Not always, but occasionally life happens so fast and there’s so much going on that it can be hard to sit down and ask yourself, “Wow, what just happened? How do I feel about this? What did God teach me through this?” For Katherine and I, that was the month of Malaysia. If you&rsqu

How many Americans Does it Take to Unlock a Door?

So as promised I made a couple more videos of our travel day and first night in the apartment.  So wow. This has been so absolutely amazing and I can't wait to sit down and write to you guys about the ways God has really been moving!  I would like to continue vlogging but I may not post all of them here so I would love for you to go and subscribe to my youtube channel to stay updated through videos and I will continue to blog on... well my blog page ;)  Hope you enjoy!  &

Dear perfection

Dear perfection,  For a huge portion of my life I have strived for perfection. This idea to be the perfect daughter, student, Christian, woman, etc. seemed attainable to me, but honestly it was exhausting. I would set high expectations for myself and live according to these high and unrealistic standards. I knowingly would set myself up for future failures/anxiety because there is no way to be perfect in all areas and roles of my life. It was a self-fulfilling prophecy, and I set myself up

Ministry Wk. 1

This week was our first official week starting ministry and to be honest it has been pretty hard for me. I have grown to see that ministry can be a multitude of things. When many people think of ministry on missions trip it typically involves serving others, whether that be children, building homes, praying over people, and etc. For our first month Team Unshakable is doing manual labor. I knew that manual labor would definitely be apart of ministry during these next 11 months but this SoCal city

God Showed Me How Gentle He Is

Monday, July 9th - Storytelling Workshop Tuesday, July 10th - Friday, July 20th - Training Camp   Community, wow oh wow, 300 people all in sync, pursuing the same God, is utterly beautiful. I couldn’t have picked a better squad (47 people) or team (7 other ladies) even if I tried. God distinctly orchestrated us all to be on route 3, this squad, these teams, these countries, this year, and in this season of our lives. His timing is perfect. Going into training camp, I was super wor
