He Sets The Prisoner Free

I've grown to really know and trust God's voice, even if He calls me to do crazy things that I don't understand at the moment. My responsibility is wholehearted obedience, no matter what. It's not always easy, but it IS always worth it. John 10:27 "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me." Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for those that love God..." This is the story of how God set the prisoner free, mainly a specific prisoner... me. Earlier this y

Private or Public – Is this For Me Alone?

This morning’s post is something of a confession. As my blog and facebook prayers continue to grow in popularity I find myself constantly wanting to harness my thoughts, to remember my prayers and confine my imaginings so that I can share them with others.  I love writing and I love sharing and I know that this is […]

All the Feelings

Oh, Nepal. Too many thoughts flood my mind as I sit here and reflect on the past 30 days. From starting the month questioning everything I believed in, to finishing the month feeling more freedom than I’d ever experienced before… it was a wild ride. Here are the highlights:   Confusion. When the honeymoon phase of the World Race wore off, all I was left with was this “new normal” life. I had allowed ministry to become a 9-5 job instead of making it my lifestyle.

Opening Doors

Sitting in the dark. Staring at a brick wall. I am in an enclosed room. There are four walls, but no door. The windows give me a glimpse of the world outside. I cannot help but notice what a raw analogy this is to so many lives. We have fortified ourselves with explanations of faith. We have girded our lives with feelings of understanding. We have guarded our viewpoints with sentiments of justice. But while building our protection, we forgot to leave the door to let others in. And now we'

Behind the Scenes with T-Squad Story Tellers

  The other story leaders and I worked together to create a promotional video for our ministry contact this month.

Third stop: Cambodia.

It's so crazy to think that I have been away from home for over two months all ready. At times I find myself missing home, but pray that my heart stays where my feet are. This month that means being present while 2 of my teammates and I take care of 4 special needs children for 3 hours each day. My heart longs to love them like Jesus does each minute that I am with them. It has proven a bit difficult since they can't communicate their needs, and I haven't spent enough time with them yet to pick

Lessons from Rockstars [Video]

When I say rockstars, I mean my teammates.  No seriously. They're awesome. And when says one definition of rockstar is "or anyone who is highly admired" ... rockstars. Every last one of them.   I was on 2 different teams with 10 amazing teammates over the past 11 months. We were two teams who lived, laughed, cried, served, prayed, watched movies, danced, worshipped, and did laundry together, one for 4 months, the other for 7.  And at the end of every month

Pre-Launch Thoughts

1 month ago I finished everything I had to do in Oklahoma. During a period of 3 years I made so many friends, learned how to do ministry, and got a bachelor’s degree. I said goodbye and then moved back to California in order to see my family again before I leave. In the previous chapter of my life, I thought I was going to be a Youth Pastor. I got the training and the education, and I am leaving everything I knew and worked for behind. Now September 1st 2015 I am flying to the east coast

Fundraising: An Introvert's Perspective

Let me first dispel the myth that all introverts are shy or socially inept, or that they are not "people" people. It is simply not true, certainly not for every one.  But I do think it's fair to say that interacting with others takes a lot out of introverts. It requires mental preparation and planning beforehand, rest and reflection afterward. At least that is the case for me.  Enter fundraising.  My personal experience speaks from developing ministry partners, but I imagine ma
