moving in faith

Over the past week, we’ve hit our visa situation hard. If you’ve never moved abroad and dealt with immigration, then let me tell you it is no fun. No fun at all. It stretches you in every way possible, and it’s much of the cause of all my gray hair. So long story short, we’ve decided to get our house up for sale now, get ready for Mark to...

the merry go round

So on average I have a pretty good memory. I’m not a typically scatterbrained or forgetful person . . . until lately. Holy smokes, man.

We went up to visit with...

the nitty gritty

I’m trying to be very disciplined about posting updates on this site, so even though I don’t have a ton to say today, I’m going to continue with a Monday post in order to keep my momentum going. So just a few thoughts on life as it is right now: Two big things happened last week – we received the kids’ British passports and purchased...

made in His likeness

In the Hebrew language, my name means “Who is like God?” Kind of a heavy meaning name. And it perfectly fits the topic that has been on my mind this week. Last week, we had another special speaker at the Bible school, and he said something that has played over and over in my mind. He said that many times we think that if we’re really getting...
