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

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

Spring is for the Birds

Last Spring, I was packing. Throwing stuff away, getting ready for a yard sale, and cleaning like a mad woman. (As much as I could with a toddler and 2 year old).
