Grief is a crazy thing. All summer people have been asking about Anna going to school, and how she feels and how we feel, etc. It’s been easy to say, “Excited  and nervous” without thinking about it too much because we  are going to be here her first semester.  So when we drop her off this coming Monday (2 days!!) … Read More

I love being near the water.  Wherever we have lived in the States, we have always found ourselves  drawn to the nearby lake or ocean.  Even a nice river works.   There’s just something about being near water that seems to make my heart calm. This summer at Delta we have had access to the lake whenever we want it. For … Read More

We’ve been back in the States for a little over 3 weeks now, and last night was the 9th different bed we’ve slept in!  We are very thankful for friends and family who have hosted us, but we are also glad to be settled in at Delta Lake for the Summer.  Now that we’ve finally unpacked our suitcases the complex … Read More

Recently Anna had her big Senior Seminar presentation.  She did a great job, and is relieved that it is over and she can now relax as the school year gets ready to end in just about 6 weeks! In 6 weeks her life is about to change a lot.  The day after she graduates we get on a plane and … Read More

Not long ago RJ got in the car after  school and asked if I had bought chocolate.  (He is so my child!)  I told him no, and he immediately sighed and said, “We haven’t had chocolate in a long time.”  I literally stopped what I was doing and looked at him in the rear view mirror before responding, “Really, Dude?  … Read More

I love Kenya.  I just want to be very clear on that before I say anything else in this post.  I love our life here, our team, the work we do, the kids’ school, our church.  I really couldn’t ask for more.  However, this summer we are leaving our home here for a bit to spend time at our home … Read More

Withholding Nothing

Recently at church we sang a song called “Withholding Nothing.”  It’s a simple song as far as lyrics as music. It goes as follows: “I surrender all to you, everything I give to you, withholding nothing, withholding nothing.   I give you all of me.  King Jesus!  My Savior! Forever, I give you all of me.” Withholding Nothing  (Click here … Read More

This morning has found me wandering around my house looking for something to organize. We keep things pretty simple here with not a lot of “extras,” but there is still something so calming about organizing. This week is turning out to be a rough one for me emotionally.  We just lost a major supporter in the midst of trying to … Read More

Shawn’s parents recently spent 7 weeks with us here in Nairobi.  It is always fun to get a fresh perspective of a place you live, because we get use to the quirks a place has.  The three months leading up to their arrival we would say several times a time, “Wait until Mom and Dad (Grandma and Grandpa) see this!” … Read More

  Tonight we sat with a small group of people from church after being asked to share a bit about Passover.   It was an intimate group – all the people knew each other well and were, essentially, family.  After Shawn shared the message we had a delicious meal together and as we sat around and talked for a while, … Read More
