I was not going to share this publicly, but in the interest of having as many prayer warriors on our side as possible, I changed my mind…The paperwork on some of my girls may or may not be missing something, depending on who I am listening to.Tomorrow at 10 am my time, a meeting will take place that will determine what needs to be done and if our family can stay as is.We know that nothing that will take place… Read more

Do not forget in the darkness what you have been promised in the light.It happens all too easily. A rough day (or several in a row this week…) and I forget. We all do. It becomes to easy to look around and think. “Why? Why do I do this?” “Why take one more child, why live with less so we can give to others more, why leave family and friends to go to a land of strangers, WHAT am I… Read more

*be warned: I always re-read things before I post them. I didn’t re-read this one, it is liable to be messy…I am processing so many emotions right now; I’m just going to go ahead and let you know that this post will not be eloquent or well written. It will not be a beautifully worded story, but just the ramblings of a mom who is tired today. It will just be, and it will be good enough.On Thursday of last… Read more

It is my 16th Birthday and I am eating sushi at my favorite restaurant with my parents when I tell them that I would like to explore the possibility of taking a year in between high school and college to do mission work. This is unheard of in my family and they say they are not sure and will think about it. I am nervous, but somehow I know it is right. He changes their hearts.I have just turned 18… Read more

update at 8:30 pm, wednesday: Sumini has severe malaria, please pray for her! Seein her so sick brings back many emotional memories for Momma…Friends and Family (and stalkers, just kidding!),This week has been a wonderful, hard, emotional roller coaster for me. I was hesitant to mention in my writing before that this week my brother, my dad and Ben will be here. Some of you know and some of you don’t… Ben was my highschool boyfriend and though I am… Read more

Home sweet home.I probably have about two people who still check my blog after such a long absence, but it was much needed time to be still with the Lord and love on and be loved by dear friends and family. The last two weeks have been a whirlwind. I cannot describe the blessing that took place on July 17th at our dinner. It could not have been more God-orchestrated. From the songs that were sung to the words that… Read more
