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
I used to go to Nicaragua, and I would want to bring all the babies home. And when I say babies I’m talking from infant to 17 years olds. I’m not biased. I love them all. Even the little old ladies who give the sweetest hugs. I’ll bring them home too! What has comforted my soul the most on this trip is being able to … Continue reading When “Your Babies” Don’t Need Saving
When introducing my family and friends in Nicaragua, I honestly don’t know where to begin. Do I start with the most desperate situation? Or do I ease you guys into it with a more mild need than some of the more difficult stories. After much thought and consideration, I’ve decided to start with one of the more difficult stories from our trip. This isn’t necessarily … Continue reading Meet Naomi: WMO Mission Series
This post isn’t really going to make sense to those who didn’t follow my last two week missions trip to Nicaragua. It was one of the most incredible trips of my life. God grew me in ways that I didn’t know he could grow me. I learned from people who were actually a lot stronger than I realized they were. I knew they were super … Continue reading It’s the start of a new year, but is this what you expected?
She laughs without fear of the future… Ever since my return from NICA, I’ve been faced with bouts of anxiety, lots of emotional moments, and times where I just didn’t understand what was happening. In those moments, I was afraid and scared. I realized that I was walking in fear not faith, so I reached out to the most faith-filled people I knew and asked … Continue reading She Laughs Without Fear of The Future
Good morning, Friends!

I came across a graphic on another blogger’s Instagram page the other day, and it literally stopped me in my tracks… like my fingers were just a scrolling, and then BAM. I was shook. The graphic was very simple, and it only had 4 words. It said: BE HUMBLE sit down Since then, I have come to know that these are song lyrics from Kendrick … Continue reading Sometimes “Being Humble” Means Sitting Down…
I became part of a community. Having lived in Toronto for almost 3 years now, you would think I would have networked myself enough to develop a new set of friends… I’ll be honest though, I’m kind of a friend snob. I don’t let just anyone to my inner circle. I guess I’ve either been burned too many times or I just have been so … Continue reading I Did Yoga for 60 Days and This is What Happened…
When God restores your hope in yourself, your ability to believe in yourself, and the core values that you place on yourself, you become a pearl. Continue reading In a World of Diamonds, I’m a Pearl.
