“That They Might Have Life”

(The following is an updated and edited version of a post I wrote a few years back.) We call ourselves pro-life. We say we believe that every life is precious. We advocate and debate and share heart-wrenching photos of the unborn on social media. We are dismayed at the thought of children losing their lives for… Continue reading “That They Might Have Life”

Roasted Vegetable Blender Pasta Sauce

(Feel free to skip the ramble and scroll down to the bottom for the recipe). One of the things that I miss the most since moving to the island is the plentiful and inexpensive produce that was plentiful on the mainland. We have a few great supermarkets here, but everything is imported and not always… Continue reading Roasted Vegetable Blender Pasta Sauce

What I’m Reading Wednesday – Week 2 Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin

The book Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds by Jen Wilkin was a GREAT book to begin the new year with.

A Perfect Morning

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8 A perfect morning, sipping lattes in a little hideaway cove, watching the kids get out all their energy after weeks of rain.

52 Weeks of Stillness

I sit here on this very first day of a brand new year, sipping my coffee in a favorite cup (they're all my favorites) and reflecting on all that the recent years have brought. I wonder with some excitement--and I confess a little bit of fear--what will this new year bring? I try to effectively… Continue reading 52 Weeks of Stillness

The Dying Place

We knew going in that it would be impossible. The mission field God led us to was a place of innumerable needs, and we were completely incapable of meeting those needs ourselves. Here was this place, packed to the brim with dozens and dozens of emotionally and spiritually starved children, teens, and young adults. Each… Continue reading The Dying Place

Happy Thanksgiving

When I think back over the last two years, I am so very thankful and overjoyed to be where we are today. God has lovingly brought us through so much, literally parted the Sea for us, and bestowed bountiful blessings on our heads. Last year at this time, I was begging God for a very… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
