As I have said in my last post, we have been in this season of waiting that has been covered by an amazing, clearly holy …

Giving Up

Well, I said I had news coming, and I do! But, that is not for today. At the time of our last post, our world was headed in a whole new direction, and then was redirected once again. Let me start at the semi-beginning… So our time here in our ministry has been really challenging for me. That apparently is …

Catching Fire

Kirk and I had known we wanted to have another baby about the time River would be turning five. Once we started at LifeHouse, we also wanted to make sure we could manage ministry and our family before we added another dimension. After our first summer, we knew we were ready, and, with the Lord’s blessing, we were pregnant right …

Noses and Hands

Wow, it has been a loooong time. Sorry about that. You know, it says in Deuteronomy 4:24 “”For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.” When I was in junior high, one of my teachers did a demonstration that often the length we feel away from God is the distance we put there, but the moment …

Unpacking

For me, this season has been all about equipping. It reminds of when I was “packing my suitcase” with little lessons and I have been amazed at how I have been actually been packing for a lifetime. Some of my life lessons are pretty dusty, but still so useful We have had a crazy couple of weeks, with challenging girls, …

I Cannot Believe This Is My Life

I don’t think I’ve shared about it before, but when I was younger and I was pondering what I wanted to do in my life, my dream was to open a bed and breakfast. I wanted to have a little vacation type place that when guests stayed there I would be able to just serve and love on them, that …

Open Door – and We Are Walking!

We are moving. Literally! We got the job we applied for in Houston! Contracts are in the works and we are on our way to start April 1. It’s amazing that something that has been so long in the works can all of a sudden POP! and it’s time to go. So, let me tell you a little about the …

His Voice

So, I haven’t written in a LONG time. I’m sorry about that. I have half begun about 100 posts, but was always too tired, distracted, or just plain lazy to put it all together. But, this morning was kind of awesome, and I knew my posting could wait no longer. Not a lot has happened in the interim, just holidays …

Dating

It’s interesting, one thing I didn’t expect about the missions journey was how like a relationship it would become. Are lots of things in life like that? I felt almost like I had a new boyfriend, and each new “date” made me fall more and more in love. I was excited for all of the possibilities, all of the challenges, …

Day 103: A Dream of a Closed Door

I had another dream the other day about a dear friend of ours. A mentor of mine had given me a task and I had completed it. He said to me that I had done it excellently, and that Kirk and I had been a huge help to him. He loved us dearly, and that this was goodbye. Then, he …
