“There’s a peace I’ve come to know Though my heart and flesh may fail. There’s an anchor for my soul I can say ‘It is well.’” Yesterday we had the memorial service of a wonderful man of faith in our church.  He was a cornerstone and a rock in the church history, serving as assistant pastor as one point and … Read More

Each evening I sit with Andrew and RJ and I read aloud to them.  We have been reading through a wonderful series from Andrew Peterson called “The Wingfeather Saga”, which I highly recommend to everyone regardless of age.  I have read it myself three times and still enjoy it each time!  And I love seeing the boys’ reactions when we … Read More

As we are coming upon a year (!) in Kenya this month, I have been thinking a lot about the last couple of years.  I wrote a blog a few years ago about the true desires of my heart for my kids (here) and I have thought about this blog several times in the last two years.  It was easy to say … Read More

It’s 2016. I have to admit, there are many ways that I am not sad to see this year close its doors.  Last night at our New Year’s Eve party with some friends someone asked for the best and worst moments of the year.
