We are still on our journey of getting our kiddo home. This is our son. We are in the very last stages of adopting Eric, a […]

When I am Distant, He is Enough.

Yesterday was a hard day. I was just sick of myself. Ever have those days? Tired of the same old you waking up and being stuck in the same ruts? I was, I am. I sat down to blog, like I have been trying to do for the past week, and nothing would come out. […]

Ashley's Silly Family

Orphan Awareness Month: Ashley.

Hi. I’m Ashley. I’m a mom of three. This is my silly family. Inside the walls of our home, we operate just like any busy family. I spend my early mornings packing lunches for school, signing assignment pads, determining what my morning grump will eat for breakfast while making a ponytail for my early riser, […]

It’s Orphan Awareness Month!

Did you know that the month of November is Orphan Awareness Month? Like every year, we love to use this month to step back and see how we as a couple are contributing to the orphan aide across the world. Living in the age of computers and technology, it’s super easy to support a child […]

Guest Post: Hi, My name is Haley.

Haley is one of those girls who you know God is going to use to do something big in this world. Her heart for Haiti, the kids at Life is Hope and for Christ is in a word, contagious. Her laughter and humorous spirit breathe joy into the little moments of life when you are […]

5 Minutes of My Day: De-segregation

It’s Sunday morning and I’m with a team who comes to Haiti often. They are a beautiful example of consistent and long-term partnership, returning back to the same community and partnering with the same local pastor. Even more exciting is that the team is even working within the church plants that have come from the […]

8 Things Disney’s Pocahontas Taught Me About Missions

We all know Pocahontas is boss. She’s the epitome of what every young girl wants to be, or at least to me she always was. Long dark flowy hair (that never tangles, even as she runs the hidden pine-trails of the forest) perfectly tanned skin without a single freckle, she holds eagles on her arms with […]

Liar, Liar: How Was Your Summer? (Part 2)

This post is a continuation of my last, where I began to do my best to answer the question you inevitably hear from friends, family, and acquaintances after returning from a summer leading mission teams. So, how was our summer? It was full of blessings. Ask anyone who has been on a mission trip how their […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Oil and Water

I’m not even leading this team, but I’m sleeping at this guest house. Eric is leading the team that is lodging at this facility, I’m merely just stealing a bed for the night. I haven’t been here in a month or so, so I’m emotional as I drive into the lot. To my delight, the […]

Rachel is an awe-inspiring woman of Christ. She was on a trip I led this past summer and led us in worship every morning and night. It was an absolute joy to serve alongside her during the week and be ushered into the presence of Christ through her humble heart, beautiful voice and guitar. Her […]

The Ultimate Mission Trip Style Guide: Wet Hair, Don’t Care.

America, land of the hair dryer. I remember my first trip to Belize, I was full of questions.. “do I need to take a hair-dryer?” “will other girls dry their hair?” “wait, am I supposed to wear it wet?” The answers are: no, not if they are smart, and yes.  I will be one of […]
