Over the past few weeks, one of the constants getting me through has been the knowledge of a few prayer warriors approaching the throne on my behalf. I’d shoot a text message or email or a half-hearted whisper in the midst of a stress-induced situation, and immediately I’d feel peace. I’d like to do the […]

i can’t.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest… Matthew 11.28 I woke up this morning incredibly drained. Russ lost his job yesterday and last night we spent awhile dealing with the disappointment and wondering where we go from here. We’ve been expecting something like this for awhile, […]

5:15 came early this morning. I did my daily routines: brushing, yawning, coughing, sneezing, changing, yawning, drinking, reading, writing… I missed something, though. Unable to place my finger on it, I wrote longer than normal in my prayer journal – begging God for guidance and wisdom. Just move in me – through me – I […]

how quickly we forget

March 23, 2010


I woke up this morning burdened for Haiti. I sat and did my 750 words and the only thing that came out was how I missed it and how the orphans were calling out to me and how I felt absolutely helpless to do anything except pray for their freedom. And then I forgot. I […]

Last summer, I spent my days reading and becoming acclimated to our new home in Austin. This summer, we will spend two weeks in Kibera, Kenya. We made the decision in the span of 24 hours. I went to the Reagan to Africa meeting on Monday night and as I sat with one of the […]

About a week ago, I posted about Amos, an incredible little boy who needed to be reunited with his family. Since then, I have been introduced to countless precious faces reunited with their forever families. And then I heard of Ronel. I actually already knew who he was. Jamie Ivey posted a blog about him […]

this time last year Russ & I were going through a rough time. God was calling us to a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him – one that required trust and faith. this is what I wrote one night and it’s so similar to what we’re facing today  – I thought I’d share. i don’t […]

I should be creating some type of lesson centered on East of Eden right now, but I can’t – this face is occupying all of my thoughts and prayers. His name is Amos, and he is the son of Jamie and Aaron Ivey. He lives in Haiti at Real Hope For Haiti and is waiting for […]

First, watch this: You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry. defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more. Psalm 10:17-18 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to […]

I’m sitting here, staring at my dog sleeping on our huge chair he’s claimed as his own, and I can’t help but wonder - Man I wish I could blink my eyes and it be next year – I’ll be skinnier. Healthier. Russ will have a job and we won’t be biting our nails about […]
