The better question, the more common question is this: What’s your calling? Many of us have been trying to answer that question our entire lives. We pray, ask God for guidance, seek advice from mentors, and observe peers in … Continue reading Does God Have a Calling on Your Life?
I’ve only just recently processed the Event that put my husband in a wheelchair, then led him to a little scooter, then to crutches for 8 weeks and eventually to complete healing and the ability to not only walk but to run again.

I’ve been home for a few days now, and the whirlwind of emotional rollercoasters have been in full force. Reverse culture shock is a thing. Getting back to normal is my fear. Falling back into routine is scary. And wondering if the missions trip vibes will wear off is real. Day 1 after my trip I was a complete mess. Less than 30 minutes off … Continue reading The Struggle to Balance in Two Very Different Worlds
It’s 10pm, and we’ve been up since 7am. The sound of my alarm clock going off was so long ago, I’ve forgotten that it even happened. It has been one of those days that feels like 3 days.

It was … Continue reading Transparent feelings at the end of a very good, long day here in Nicaragua

When we planned our little getaway, I didn’t realize Giving … Continue reading What “Giving Tuesday” Means to Us

Good morning, (well, afternoon now) I’m writing this post as I prepare for a follow-up visit to my family doctor in regards to some testing I had done a little over a week ago. I chose the title for this post before knowing the results of my exams because I believe in a powerful God, and I have been praying with an expectancy that regardless … Continue reading Doctor’s Visits & Answered Prayers
Before we take a glance at what it looks like to run from God, we should note some of the reasons we run from Him. I don’t want to just jump right in with a bullet-point list or diagram. I want to take you on a journey so that you can explore the discovery of realizing the moment you maybe started running away or understand … Continue reading What it looks like to run from God…
And all over again my heart is ripped open, and I’m homesick from the place I hold no claim to other than leaving my heart behind. I have spent the last couple of weeks, state side, trying to “make it better” and get back to normal, but like I said in a previous post, there is no normal after you return from a Missions Trip … Continue reading Letting Jenna Tell A Story
