Marriage and Ministry – Double or Cut in Half?

About a year ago I was talking with a friend who came from the states and had been a missionary for many years.  We got to talking about relationships and he gave me some really good advice that hit me.  He said “The person you choose to marry will either Double your life and ministry…

A girl name ENTITLED!

I ran into a girl named Entitled yesterday.  She had a very interesting story.  From a young age she had been born into a family that gave her everything that she wanted.  “No” was not in her vocabulary because the parents felt that if they said “no”, it would take away her happiness.  As she…

ONE YEAR OLDER

My birthday was yesterday and I realized that I am one year older.  Funny how that works!  Each year God takes you through a journey that will grow you, teach you and allow you to gain more wisdom.  The older you are, the more life experience you have, and that can either be good or…

New Zealand 2017 (UPDATE)

In 2014 I gave up my entire life and jumped on a plane not knowing where God would take me.  All I know is that God said “GO”.  What would that look like?  How would life look when all your comfort is taken away and all I could do was to trust that God would…

It is better to _____, than to ______.

It wasn’t until I went to Africa that I found out that living in a western culture, that was filled with abundance, numbed me to how oblivious I was to walking in the ways of this world.  Although I didn’t come from an extremely wealthy family, we had more than any little African child could…
