It’s hard to believe that 5 years have already come and gone since John & I got married. We’ve called 3 states home & have probably traveled well over 50,000 miles. As I reflect on these last 5 years, I’m amazed at all the things we’ve accomplished in such a seemingly short amount of time. […]

I can’t believe another year has come and gone. Does time ever slow down? This year has been one for the books and one we won’t ever forget. In January, we sold our house and moved to west Michigan. I don’t think either of us knew what to expect, but we made it our mission […]

Have you ever dreamed a dream that seemed too good to ever be true? That’s how we felt until last Friday.

It doesn’t seem like long ago that I was typing up a year in review for 2015 and now here I am looking back at year 2016. How is it possible for time to seemingly pass us by so quickly? Nonetheless, 2016 has been good to us. It’s been a year of travel, waiting, and checking […]

Several months ago, I felt God calling me on another mission trip. At the time, I thought maybe I should go back to Honduras, a place I had been to twice before. God silently kept telling me to go to Panama, though. So, I joined a group of people I didn’t know and told God […]

This past week I spent my time in Rome, Georgia at the WinShape Retreat for the Pursuit Conference. Pursuit is a christian community (based on Proverbs 31) for creative entrepreneurs dedicated to cultivating the art of community and building the Kingdom of God as He uses us in our families, neighborhoods, and the world.

This post was meant to be shared at the first of the year, but sickness came and  just like that January is over and 2016 is in full swing. When the calendar year ends, we all tend to reflect on the months past and make resolutions for the new year to come. Although, I’ve never been […]
