What We’ve Learned (so far)

So it’s been a while and a lot has happened, so I figured the easiest thing to do would be to answer some good ole fashioned, FAQ’s. Q: Is it as hotter in Australia than Florida? A: Yep. But it’s not as humid. And after a while, sweat stains become quite the flattering accessory so I don’t mind […]

Here’s to New Beginnings!

Well guys. I’m on a plane. A short two hour trip to Dallas, Texas before my big flight to Sydney. As I sit here listening to you make me brave by bethel I am reminded how faithful my God is. I am reminded that he has my every step thought out. He knows my every […]

New Christmas Traditions

Christmas is typically spoken about in either a cheerful and loving tone, or a grouchy and hateful one. I like to think I speak about the season with a lot of holiday cheer. Ever since I was a little girl I loved Christmas time. I daydreamed about meeting Santa Clause as he squeezed down the […]

This past week however was absolutely crazy and to say “wow what a week” would be a huge understatement. On Friday the 13th (ya know, when I should’ve posted) Anastasia […]

Truth is, I’m not as outgoing as I want to be

If asked to describe myself in three words I’d respond with determined, hardworking and outgoing. If my best friend were asked to describe me in three words it’s safe to say she’d probably say the same. I don’t know why I’ve always described myself with those three words; but I have. Outgoing has always seemed […]

Learning Together

About a month ago, Nate Cowdery approached John and I about starting up a young adults ministry with him. I’m not going to lie, at first I was not about it at all. I knew everything Nate was saying was important and needed, but I was not about to start something and then turn around […]

Attitude is Everything

I work a sales job. As in a job where I sit on the phone all day, make cold calls (and every now and again calls to previous customers) and sell things. It’s not a job that you would expect God to work through, but I’ve come to find out that when the Bible says […]
