Eyes wide open. Faith activated.

The apostle Paul writes to the Ephesians, "Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. Be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil." (Ephesians 5:14-16) When we are asleep, injustice and pain can run rampant across the earth, but we may not even see or know of the nightmare someone else is living. Once we've been awakened, we can see the evil and respond. We are up, alert, ready to take

11 Things I Never Thought I'd Be Thankful For

Sappy Thanksgiving post ahead. Yes, I am capable of being sappy about holidays :)   The World Race, really traveling in general, is great for teaching perspective. I have met so many people, heard so many stories, and seen so many things that I never would have at home. And so, this Thanksgiving, while I'm thankful for all of the old standards - family, health, pumpkin pie - I also have a few unusual additions to my pile of blessings.   1. R Squad!

It's not about the money. I always make everything about the money. Which is kinda funny since I've been so focused on relaxing and NOT caring about money for YEARS now. I just care too much about it, and I wana stop caring altogether. There's such freedom to be found in abundant living. It's a journey. I'm out here living the best life ever! I'm fulfilling my dream of seeing the world, and while I do it, I get to serve God in missions as I go. As I travel, there is a certain desire to do a

Homesick For Heaven

It's hard for me to believe that I am at the end of my fifth month on the race. Some days it feels like I just said goodbye to my family and friends back in America. Other days I catch myself thinking, "how am I going to do this for 6 more months?" I've been missing home a lot lately; not being in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother preparing Thanksgiving dinner, knowing that my brother and grandparents will be home for Christmas this year, and not ringing in the New Year with my boyfrien
