5 Minutes of My Day: Barriers of the Heart

Eric and I are sitting in the car at the airport. We’re in the middle of our trip-leading season, mid June. It’s hot, humid and the country is full-to-the-brim with people, missionaries, relatives visiting, tourists and adventurers alike. The airport is a mess, people walking on top of one another it’s so packed. We are […]

The Daily Grind – A mini-post update

Hello again world! It’s been tooooo long! Like, 3 months too long. For the past three and a half months, my life has consisted of diaper changes, failed attempts at normal hygiene and lots and lots of baby cheek kisses. Edison is the best thing ever. His little heart and hands and smile fills our home […]

A Plea to Already-Moms Everywhere

***At 32 weeks pregnant, I wrote out this blog post one morning. Exhausted and frustrated, the tears ran from my eyes as I furiously left my heart in the words I typed. Spurred into action by yet another ridiculous comment from a stranger at the store about how awful parenthood is… and tired of hearing […]

A Prayer for my Unborn Son – These Frail Hands

Little guy, as you grow inside my belly each day, you hold my thoughts captive. When I wake up (if I sleep at all) I think of you. When I work, I think of you. When I laugh with your father, I think of you. I think of all the ways I could fail you. […]

Food For Thought: But I’m Vegetarian?

Oh it’s you! My fellow “I eat a specific diet” friends! My Gluten Free friends. My Vegetarian and Vegan friends. My Diabetic friends. My Allergy-list-a-mile-long friends. I’ve not been vegetarian for long, just 5 years this March. When not pregnant, I also try to stay away from dairy and eggs (not quite vegan though). I have […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Sandy

I’m 6.5 months pregnant now and my feet look like they belong to the body of a sumo-wrestler. I’m sitting here in Miami at the church partner we’re working with. They have a nice little house church – complete with A/C and fans! The team is going on their 5th hour of ministry today, with […]

Earlier, I shared some of the videos I took for Bethany while in country this summer. Continuing that thought, I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from the summer. A lot of these pictures are me with our PPM staff, a group of people who worked endlessly alongside me throughout the summer. When you […]
