12 Stones

So Joshua called together the twelve men he had chosen—one from each of the tribes of Israel. He told them, “Go into the middle of the Jordan, in front of the Ark of the lord your God. Each of you must pick up one stone and carry it out on your shoulder—twelve stones...

Stewards of TIME

The life we live demands yes or no answers for the most part. As many of you know I am prepping to head back to Africa in May. It has had its moments of great joy and great sadness. The thought of being on another crazy adventure will over take me for a while and then...

Back to Africa

Over a year ago I met with a great friend of mine. She was preparing to travel to eleven countries in eleven months. She was selling bracelets to raise funds for her trip. As cute as the neon colors of the bracelets were I knew that there was a greater purpose in me...

Coffee date

Do me a favor before you continue reading this. Close your eyes and imagine yourself and I at a coffee shop. We are sitting at a table sipping on the best lattes that you could imagine. Heck, I will even throw in a few snacks..its on me, you get to chose.  It seems...

Idols

I was caught up in a moment of peace when all of the sudden I could sense something in my heart tugging for my ears to be open. I sat with my eyes closed with nothing distracting me. It was as if all the noise I could hear was drawing me to a deeper awareness of the...

Chasing Darkness

Sitting in a car at night time, not satisfied with what was around me. I was on a chase. I was on a mission. I would stop on the side of the road and close my eyes, only to open them and be still unsettled. I would drive up the road thinking surely I can from this...

Compassion

Compassion is not just an emotion but an action. We place so much weight on “feelings” and “emotions”. Compassion isn’t about how something makes you feel sad for some reason. Compassion is the results of seeing a need and putting action...

Update: Africa

There is a story that most of us never live. You were fashioned to live fully alive. There is an adventure on the inside of you waiting to be enjoyed now. What will it take? It is a small, three-letter word that will change your life. Many years ago I said “yes”. I...
