my thoughts

Have to say that I have had my share of bad news and difficulties when it comes to setting up a Bible school in a foreign country, trying to move our family there, and attempting to get visas for 5 others. It’s been tough!! And I’ve been working on all of this for a year! Seems unreal, and if I were judging myself on how well it’s gone, I’d...

His plans

Jeremiah 29:11 NLT “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” I haven’t written for quite some time . . . mainly because I don’t know what to say. We applied for my spouse visa over a month ago, and we received notice that the UK immigration office...

He directs our steps

We attempted a last minute family vacation this past weekend. The goal was to allow Mark and the kids a chance to see more of the US before we move. I had never seen Mt. Rushmore, and it seemed like a bearable trip to make with three children under 5 and one dog. Little did we know . . . we ended up having tire problems when we hit Cheyenne, which resulted in a long...

trusting and waiting

Over the past 10 days, we’ve waited and waited, got what we thought was a “GO!” and started planning, and then got a big “STOP.” And now, it feels like we’re just sitting as we don’t know what the next step is. And I’m not going to bore everyone with immigration details. I’m so tired of reading immigration rules,...

walking in obedience

I don’t really know how to get out what’s on my heart, but we’ll at least give it a shot. Over the past two weeks, I have spent most of my time teaching at the Bible school (or preparing my notes) and checking off a million to do items. I have had so much going on that I have felt like I’m just doing well to keep the balls in the air;...

our God reigns

The last two weeks have been so full. I’m teaching my last class for the school year at the Bible school, and as busy as we are, I knew I needed to teach this class. I’ve dove into studying authority, submission, humility, and servanthood, and it’s been so good. I’ve loved studying the Old Testament, and I’ve felt like God has been...

moving forward

The past week has just been a weird one. Very tiring, emotionally exhausting, physically overwhelming, and mentally challenging. I started out last Monday with an early morning ultrasound on my aorta and blood vessel leading to the aorta, followed by a photographer coming to take pictures of the house, followed by our normal jobs + responsibilities and the final big...
