Death affects us all. We can’t live in fear. Humanity has faced terrible things in the past. It will certainly face far worse things in the future. We experienced our own tragedy Monday morning as a dear friend lost his battle with Chagas aka Kissing Bug disease. Most of our congregants have it. We have…

I’ll be posting some simple tips and recipes you can incorporate into your natural skin care routine over the next week that are super super simple and clean for your skin and good for you too! I have specific problems I want to address: Redness and Breakouts, Resurface, Lack of Moisture, Blemishes, and Fine Lines….

Confessions of an overwhelmed missionary wife.

It’s been on my mind to start writing and keeping track of our life down here once again, but what I thought would be a slowing down of pace with this new year has been anything but that. There’s so much I could write that excites me about the ministry here, however this is a…

Mexico

I can’t believe we are nearing the end of our trip here in the U.S.! Seeing all our family and church friends has been so great! Watching God work in us this past year and learning from His Holy Spirit has been invaluable as we reflect, to say the least, and eye opening on so…

L & Grandpa

Most of our summer we spent up at camp UTIBACA (sort of an acronym for Utah Baptist Camps). While I ran around with The Kids making sure they stayed away from the horse corals, the 40 foot climbing tower, and restrooms! Because who is scared of heights  anyways ( um -me).  Horse hooves -fiddle sticks!…

Woodchips

     Little kids at play. The sun pouring out it’s last few rays for our golden summer evening tonight was beautiful, but seeing the kids and their cousins having fun at the park and then discover wood chips was just funny to watch. Little kids need so little to be happy. Never mind trying…

New Beginnings

Remember that little black hole I told you all I felt like I was in? Well, God’s mercies are new every morning! Really, I KNOW they are. 🙂 I just want to thank all my family and friends that stopped to just say something or to say they were praying for us or share their special…

Lately-in a nut shell

Do you ever feel like you’re going through a tunnel? You know God is with you and you know God’s promises, but you’re just not sure about anything? You’re not sure if those promises are really meant for you to experience? I feel like God has put me in this place…and for a reason. I…

Rope Rug

Happy Wednesday! Did you know you could make a rug out of a rope? Um, I didn’t either until last week. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it and just  kind of filed this idea in the back of my mind for a “someday DIY”. After taking our trip to Vallegrande for supplies and…

Welfare Christians? Or Fierce!

I’m a part of several online Christian women’s groups. That said, I wanted to talk about something today that is just beginning to alarm me some. In fact, it really tears my heart out to see. Christian’s want to go to church. They want and see the need for fellowship. They arrive, greet and sit…

DIY Ankle Booties from Knee High Boots

DIY Ankle Booties from Riding Boots A couple years ago I bought these nice leather boots from Fossil for $9.00.  At that price I would be crazy not to get them! Since that fateful day they’ve been sitting in a dark lonely corner of my armoire. Literally, I’ve worn them twice. I’m a pretty spontaneous…

We are coming to the States guys, May 31st! That’s only 11 weeks to get everything in order. The frenzy begins and lots of lists too! I don’t want to forget anything. What would I do without lists? Lily is dying with excitement. We’ve been praying and reminding her that if God wants us to…
