SURPRISE. two weeks ago i got a tattoo. oh dear, she's blogging about her tattoo. i know, i know. i'm cringing too. i really tried to not write this blog. i'm not a fan of when people do something with their lives and won't shut up about it. (ha, says the girl who signed up for some crazy mission trip months ago and still won't keep quiet about it. irony rocks.) so yeah, i got a tattoo and i'm blogging about it. get with it or get over least that's what i'm telling myself as i

Route Change!

Hey everyone! First off Happy Easter to you all!    I wanted to share some exciting new with you all!    My World Race route has been changed. I will no longer be traveling to Latvia and Estonia, but will now be going to Romania and Moldova!  In Romania we may get to help teach English, run a camp, or get to know and work with gypsies. In Moldova (a country I just learned about this week,) we will focus on showing Gods love and peace to a country fill

Prayers for Good Friday 2014

It is already Good Friday in Australia, New Zealand and parts of Asia so I wanted to get these Good Friday prayers up early. May we all enter into this day with heaviness of heart for the high cost of redemption. It is finished. The procession begun in triumph with shouts of acclamation. Hosanna, Hosanna!(...)

Forever, Not Forsaken by Linda Bonney Olin

About three o’clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46 (NRSV) As I worked on a dramatic monologue and songs featuring Mary Magdalene, an image of Mary’s grief-stricken face haunted me. I heard her hollowly echoing Jesus’ words, over(...)


So it's been one month since I blogged last.  I have to admit I've seem to come down with some writers block as I am struggling with topics to blog about. So I am asking for some inspiration.  What are some questions do you have about the World Race? What's life like? What are we actually doing?   What are questions you have for me?  What are my favorite things about the race? What am I struggling with?   So ask away!  I will follow up in a few days with a blog

I am so excited to finish out the race and see what God is doing here in Africa. God is so amazing and is showing that to us every day! 

Month 9: Romania

I find myself struggling to write a blog about Romania but here is a quick update on last month.  Romanian was a different month for me. Instead of being out and about talking about Jesus, playing with kids, or doing manual labor. I was inside, sitting at my computer, building a website for our contact. I enjoyed it but I don't have any interesting stories to tell you about.  Another reason Romania was different was because we found out our travel plans back to the States&h

Ode to Family

I don't know why it still amazes me that listening to certain songs can spark such strong memories. I've been listening to a lot of Hanson lately. They were my favorite musical group growing up so as my iPod shuffled through their songs it only makes sense that I would relive moments of my childhood. Singing Mmbop on the swing set in elementary school. Practicing choreography with my cousin Hannah in an upstairs room of our grandparents old farmhouse. And attending a couple of Hanson concerts w

Help Me Come Home!!

So I've only been able to raise $20 so far for my plane or bus ticket home from Chicago, so if you would like to support me in this way, you still can. Just visit my PayPal account at little bit helps. Please pray with me for God's provision. Thank you again for all of your support!    43 days and counting! &n

A Little EXTRA in the ORDINARY

One important lesson I have learned on the World Race is that God loves surprises!  He loves to put a little extra something into the ordinary and set divine appointments for us.  Many times, I lack seeing this because I'm stuck with black and white vision when Jesus is calling me to see the rainbows. Let me be honest with you- ministry on the race isn't always exciting.  Sometimes you get to love on sweet little orphans and sometimes you don't.  Sometimes you feel like a li
