His Name.

There’s something so innocent, pure, and honest about the words that come out of a child’s mouth. I absolutely LOVE spending time with kids. It’s no wonder that after God called me to Haiti for what I thought was 6 months, I ended up staying to work in the orphanage for almost 5 years! Once […]

Well, well, well… It’s good to be with you again, my friends! It’s been quite some time since I’ve sat down to write. The truth is I haven’t really had a lot of words to share. Or, rather, I haven’t been able to put into words what I wanted to share! Can I be real? […]

I want the Impossible, too!

Have you ever had a random conversation that becomes a monumental moment in your life? Like one of those awakening moments where you think, “yea,I want that too!” I had one of those a couple of months ago and these thoughts have been brewing ever since. It was just a normal day in the life […]

Hope is Up and Running!!!

This week marks 8 months since I left Haiti. Most days it still feels like I should be mentally gearing up to go back for the next stretch, yet here I remain in this new life.  I’ve been pretty silent on the blog for the last few months because, well, truthfully I haven’t had a […]

I Want to See You.

I have been so busy the last 3 weeks! I’ve jumped into this new job and I’ve been busy learning everything that comes along with it. My morning’s start between 5:00 and 5:30 at the gym, come home, get ready for work and then I’m off for the day. It’s been so wonderful, so refreshing […]

3.5 Months Later…

Some morning’s I wake up and it still seems so surreal to me that this is my life now… that I’m not just home on a break and that I’m not heading back to Haiti in another week to continue my work at the orphanage. As I’ve mentioned, this has been a painfully beautiful season. […]

21 Days Later

Today marks 3 weeks since I left Haiti. That’s 21 days since I’ve gotten to see my sweet kiddos, hug them and squeeze them and laugh with them. I truly miss them more than I even know how to express. I feel like a piece of my heart is missing. I’ve sat down so many times […]

It’s Going to Be Ok.

I did it. I got in the car to go to the airport and then I got on the plane and left Haiti.  A number of the staff and kids sat with me on the porch before I left.  I can’t even remember, now, how many times I was the one standing on that porch […]

Loved.

Today was perfect. Well, technically it was yesterday since it’s 3:30am. But you know what I mean. The kids threw me THE most BEAUTIFUL surprise party ever! Thank you to all who were involved! It was complete with a Miseline and Lumaine singing Bless the Lord, followed by a group dance of Watch me Whip […]

Passing the Baton

One more day. Whoa. I can’t believe that I am waking up to my last full day in Haiti. Time didn’t listen to me, it didn’t slow down. Yet, God has graciously allowed me to do so very much in such a short amount of time! Yesterday I got up and walked/ran the rocky mountain […]
