A Long Silence 

The truth is, life became so chaotically busy and hard, that the right words to share just wouldn’t come. Maybe you, too, have been in a place that was so full of beauty but yet so intensely painful all at the same time. You want to share the beauty because it is breathtaking, but it… Continue reading A Long Silence

The Dirty Truth of Missions

By dirty I mean dirt. And mud. And stinky smells. So much of it! Everywhere! In my house. On my floors. All over my children. I have never faced so much dirt on a daily basis or at such an extreme level. RV life had nothing on Honduras. Dirt is everywhere, staring me in the face,… Continue reading The Dirty Truth of Missions

Consider Yourself Called

We often hear and read that the most Biblical way to care for orphans on the mission field is church planting. We agree. Orphaned and abandoned children are a tragic result of sin. The Gospel is the answer to sin. More churches are desperately needed everywhere. No argument there.  (Matthew 4:23; Matt. 11:5; Mark 13:10;… Continue reading Consider Yourself Called

Memorial Day in the Little House

Today we celebrated Memorial Day in a nice little RV park in South Dakota. It was a little chilly and windy, but warm enough to play baseball outside with the neighbor kids and grill some brats for a Jarvis-style cookout.   "Jarvis-style" means simple. Meat. A couple of easy sides. And a fun dessert. Lily and… Continue reading Memorial Day in the Little House

Easter and a Birthday in the Little House

Our Lily was due on Easter Sunday, but she was born a few days early, on 4/5/06. This meant that this year, her birthday landed on Easter! She did not mind sharing her birthday with the holiday, in fact she was pretty thrilled about it. To make the day special for her, we let her… Continue reading Easter and a Birthday in the Little House

“Here’s a Story…”

(You will laugh when you figure out why I gave that title to this post. Maybe. Or you might roll your eyes. But I laughed.) Would you like to hear a neat story? Once upon a time, a very young, struggling military family lived in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Their names were Dan &… Continue reading “Here’s a Story…”
