Miscarriage – He Knew You.

“God won’t give you more than you can handle.” Screw that. —— Finding out you just lost a baby, even one you weren’t aware of yet, is never something God thinks you can handle. Like it’s some sort of game He’s playing… waiting to see how strong He can make you become via the various life […]

Richardson Family Video!

Hey friends! While we are spending all our time on blog posts recapping our trips and ministry, we also tried to be pretty good about recording our summer from our family’s perspective! I’m in love with watching this though, because it gives me a good look into seeing Haiti from the boy’s perspective. It’s long, […]
