I am not a city girl
I’m not a city girl. A city is where a nurse abducted me the day I was born. Ironically, I spent the last 14 years as a critical care nurse. The city is also where I was molested at the age of 4 and where I had a gun pointed to my face at the…
It’s not easy
Trust & waiting doesn’t come easy. It wasn’t easy for David to believe he would become king. His time of waiting was filled with challenges and near death experiences. But he trusted God. It isn’t easy to believe that God will fulfill his impossible promises to us. But God sees our situation and because He…
Do what you said you would do
The last 2 weeks I’ve been convicted over these words, “do what you said you were going to do”. What did I say I was going to do? Some days I talk a lot and others, not much at all. One thing I was putting off was getting my eyebrows threaded but, finally I had…
Letting you go

Still, I do not feel afraid
I walked through the darkest alleys in strange cities, the loneliest roads on the other side of this world, felt the shadows of evil, and seen the terror the night brings in my own city… and still, I do no feel afraid. The lack of fear scares me the most. And yet, bravery is only…
Depths, and all things Honduran
It is as though like clockwork that my deepest thoughts seem to invade my mind at 3am. As I lay in bed, staring at the ceiling, wishing it were a warm summer day and for all things like a Honduran summer, a rippling effect of questions came to mind. What brings you joy? How can…
When storms come
When storms come to disrupt your life, remember even the flowers need rain before they can bloom.
All the right people are in your life, cheering you on.
You were made with a purpose. …The world needs your creativity, your light. You matter. …Just the way you are, your heart lights up souls. You are loved. ..Deeply and richly, and that without condition. The world needs you. …You have much to offer. Your vocation doesn’t define you. …It’s a tiny glimpse of how…
