“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”

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

Though No One Join…

A few nights ago, we sat in yet another unfamiliar church, but we were singing the familiar words to a well-loved hymn. I have decided to follow Jesus, I have decided to follow Jesus... We got to the last verse..."though no one join me, still I will follow..." and the words stood out to me… Continue reading Though No One Join…

Mission: 40 Little Things

How much is a life worth, anyway? The cost of two grande caramel macchiatos? The cost of one large pizza? The cost of a happy meal? There are times when I have thought, "I wish I could give more, but what I have to give is so little. It wouldn't even make a dent in… Continue reading Mission: 40 Little Things

20/20 Vision

It's the strangest feeling--seeing things clearly for the first time. I've worn glasses since the second grade. I'll never forget the day I put them on. The world around me was completely overwhelming! I could suddenly see people's faces so vividly. I looked way up at the branches of the trees, which before had looked… Continue reading 20/20 Vision

Birthdays are for Celebrating

Birthdays are important, you know? I mean, what better way to tell someone "I'm glad you're alive" than to celebrate the day that he or she was born? It can be a lot of fun to throw an over-the-top birthday celebration with clever decorations and Pinterest-y food. (Frankly, I LOVE those kind of parties). But as… Continue reading Birthdays are for Celebrating
