Across the Ocean

Nick began his journey across the ocean yesterday afternoon. He will be gone for about 3 weeks working on the Africa Mercy while it is dry docked for repairs and upgrades. While I miss him terribly, I know in my heart of hearts that God has created Nick for this time and for this trip. We are excited to start… Read more →

The Truth

I will start with a confession…I love Instagram! I love all of the sweet pictures that fill my feed. I love to keep up with friends and family through their posts and even some sweet momma bloggers that encourage my daily walk. But, the other day, I was reading through some comments made in response to a Christian lady’s post… Read more →

Have you ever felt like you were in a rut?  Day in, day out.  Same ole things.  Stress that doesn’t seem to lessen.  A to-do list that never seems to get shorter.  A fuse that just might blow at any second. And yet we are told in John 10 that Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and… Read more →

The Battle Rages

There is a battle and it is very real. We may not see it and then again maybe we do. Maybe we are so used to seeing it that we turn a blind eye. We long not to see it. We long not to feel its pain. It is the battle for our souls. And without God, it is a… Read more →

In the End

With all the doom and gloom in the news today, it is easy to forget that God has everything in control. Beheadings, shootings, kidnappings, disasters…and the list could go on and on. We are told in Revelation these types of things will happen before Jesus’ return. Yet it is easy to let worry set in and begin to forget that He… Read more →

The Middle

I get a little anxious in the middle. In the middle of transitions my brain begins to race and the worry creeps in. Ever so subtly at first but then I realize its presence. We’re in the middle right now. In the middle of trying to sell our house. In the middle of trying to find another house in Texas.… Read more →

A Weekend for My Soul

I love my family! I have a pretty big family when I count all of my extended/adopted, and we might be a little crazy, or a lot crazy (that’s a blog for a different day)! But I just LOVE them!  I am so blessed with siblings, definitely haven’t always felt this way, but I know I wouldn’t change having them for… Read more →
