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

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

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

First Blog Post from Honduras!

On the one hand, I can't believe we have been here six months and this is my first blog post! On the other hand, it has been the craziest whirlwind of six months I have ever experienced.

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
