On Mission Together / Passion.

  I have been a person of passion my whole life, I have always felt things strongly. Thankfulness, sadness, joy, anticipation, worry, injustice, hurt. Every feeling feels like something is about to burst within me. Think back to the movie Inside Out for a moment, I resonate with it because that is truly how IContinue Reading

Cry Out! Fasting.

“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked,Continue Reading

Rejoice (What we do now).

I am sitting in a post Christmas haze. My throat hurts, there are pine needles all over my house and I am exhausted. This past December was especially busy with hosting and celebrating and I am grateful for every minute. In all the bustle rest has been allusive and the last few days my bodyContinue Reading

What We Receive.

The thing with laying down our rights is it leaves us vulnerable. Surrendering control of our lives (even though if we are honest we really don’t have very much to begin with) can leave us feeling shaky. The unknown is an uncomfortable place to be. Trust is the firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability,Continue Reading

Grasp for Hope.

What do you think of when you read the word home? A warm glow from the front window, the smell of dinner cooking on the stove, a friendly greeting from someone who loves you. For some of you, home has been a place of safety and warmth, a place you look forward to returning to.Continue Reading

Dear Weary One,

For the broken, worn and tired. For those who walk through their days thinking their true selves invisible to others. Does the ache in your inner depths cry out as your days pass one by one? Does the sun shine and do you resent its brightness, wishing instead for night so you can rest inContinue Reading

Uganda.

The injustices of this world ignite my passion. Bullies, both big and small. Children, women living in situations where a chance and choice seem like a fairy tale. These things not at the hand of nature or circumstance, but other humans. When humans have  the audacity to treat another human like they are less thanContinue Reading

My Broken Heart.

I met a knew friend on Friday morning. I was running late and she was waiting for me with her iced Starbucks drink. The place was packed. I sat down across from her and it didn’t take long before we shared our hearts. They beat together: for justice. I wish you could meet my newContinue Reading

Peace & Loss.

You’ve Got Mail starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks came out when I was in eighth grade. I remember sitting in the theatre loving everything about Meg’s character from her love of New York in the fall to her pencil skirts. I could imagine myself as the owner of a quaint little bookstore in aContinue Reading
