My new neighbor Clayton just opened a barber shop, and he’s also quite the talented artist. He and his wife came over for some taquitos and brownie sundaes and a round of catan. On the way out I took this book of my bookshelf and let him borrow it. I think my buddy Cory Pampalone […]

So last week I talked about how God is a generous giver, and I ended that blog post by saying that we are to be LIKE Him in that way. I wrote in a ministry update a few months ago explaining my internal struggle being a homeowner. It’s hard for me to spend money decorating my […]
So… 2016’s garden was a fail. I’m glad I don’t have to rely on these crops for food or income. Where we lived in Hawaii didn’t want me putting anything in the ground. So everything I planted was either in aquaponics (which I SO miss!) or in containers. I was excited to have my own […]

Here’s something she shared with me that she wrote while teaching English in Mexico in 2009. ‘Cages’ There are many reasons people get astray. […]
This weekend our friend April came out to Ohio and we packed up a box for the girls we work with in the Philippines. First time using facebook live, now I know that you can’t shoot horizontal. Good times.
