5 Minutes of My Day: Naked Fish

There’s nothing in this world much more universally adorable than a bare baby bottom. It’s one of those naturally beautiful things, the innocence of a little kid.

5 Minutes of My Day: Saplings

It’s time for tree ministry with the team. Mango, lime, coconut, orange and papaya. I grab two of the largest coconut trees. They’re my favorite.

Onions, Life and Nail Polish.

Layers. Everything in life has layers. This ministry has so many layers. We aren’t one-dimensional people, we all have layers. Love, Fear, Grief, Joy, Happiness, Tragedy, Anger, Peace.     If there’s anything I can tell you today, it’s that my heart is hurting. Loss is loss, grief is grief and my heart hurts. From innocents […]
