Give Them Jesus

One Afternoon in Uganda “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all the peoples!” (Psalm 96:3) There she was, lying exposed on a cot in the area which they had deemed the “post-natal ward.” It was a hot and humid afternoon in Jinja, Uganda, where our mission team was visiting the local […]

Our Plans We will become foster parents once we have “our own” kids. That’s what my husband and I thought for a while. But God had other plans. On our first date, we talked about how we would love to adopt one day. However, when we became aware of the plight that is the foster […]

the cycle of seclusion It’s been a long day. You are exhausted as you pull into your garage and close the door behind you, grateful for a neighborhood that values seclusion as much as you do.

Loving Others When It's Not So Easy: Loving the Ungrateful During the Holidays

Place Makers: How to be Inclusive as a Woman of God

“I saved a seat for you!” These words from my new friend were exactly what I needed to hear to take a deep breath and relax. Just moments before, I had been sitting in my car and very seriously considering just going home. As a generally outgoing person, I was embarrassed by how nervous I […]

Give Me Jesus… Friends, we cannot fully explain the joy and excitement behind this particular launch because it would take us far too long!
