“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”

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

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

Home Is…

Recently, on Instagram, I saw a hashtag game called “Move it Up Monday”, where you are supposed to find an old photo of a pretty spot in your house and repost it to inspire others in their home decor. I thought that sounded like fun, but as I searched through my photos, I realized I… Continue reading Home Is…

This Journey, This Road, This Home –Part 2

The Road to {Surrender} on this Journey We Call Home We like control. We have trusted our very souls and eternity to Jesus Christ, yet we so often question his plan for our day to day.  We thank God for writing our names in the Book of Life, and then we grab the pen back,… Continue reading This Journey, This Road, This Home –Part 2

What’s Your Isaac?

We all have at least one. An Isaac. Something we hold onto so tightly that we might be willing to turn our backs on God if following Him meant losing it. Never mind that God is the one who gave it to us in the first place. I'll tell you mine. It can be summed… Continue reading What’s Your Isaac?
