Feeling Trapped in the Busy-ness of Life?

I’m ashamed to admit it, but I’ve looked around at everyone else and thought, “nobody is as busy as me.”  I’ve compared my life to another’s, reassuring myself that I was busier and somewhere in my mind I thought that made me better.  My value came from all of the “yes’s” I could give to […]

Can One Word Change Your Life?

God spoke one word clearly during the lecture phase; “Montana.” When I was 19 I left England and eagerly boarded a plane for The Netherlands to do a Discipleship Training School (DTS) at YWAM Heidebeek. As the oldest of four, I couldn’t wait to finally leave home and do something that was just mine. God […]

The Crux of Self-pity

Within a rock climbing route, there is often one spot defined as the crux.  The moment of truth.  The technical portion that once one is able to move beyond it, they can be certain no part of the route will be as challenging as what they just passed.  The crux is the critical point of […]

What If God Isn’t Telling Me What to Do?

…but as life continues, you realize just how out of control you are. Life is always full of transition. Whether it’s moving, a new job, relationships changing or ending, or even a perspective shift. Transition is inevitable and in many ways, unwelcome. We enjoy stability and knowing what tomorrow will bring. It brings us security […]

Can WE change lives?

Reaching out. In the past 6 months, I’ve seen this phrase play out in Scripture repeatedly. In Luke chapter 8 Jesus was on his way to the ruler of the Synagogue’s house to heal the ruler’s deathly ill daughter. As they rushed through the crowded streets to reach the young girl, there was a woman […]

What do I do with my life now?

We have all been in that place… “NOW WHAT?” “What direction do I go?” “What am I supposed to follow?” I was 19 and at the end of my rope with God and with myself. I felt empty, lost and alone. I was stuck in the place of “now what?”, searching for meaning for my […]

How God Spoke to Me Through a Pineapple

Recently, God has been speaking to me through the use of Pineapples. Yes you read that right, Pineapples. How has a simple, common fruit become the source of Heavenly revelation you ask? Well, let me tell you. First, did you know that pineapples didn’t use to be so common? In the 1600s, pineapples were so […]

Are You Willing to Take the Leap This Spring?

I walked into the office of the grocery store I worked at and turned in my two week notice not knowing exactly what I would be doing after those two weeks ran out. I had started an application to attend the Discipleship Training School (DTS) run by Youth With A Mission (YWAM) that started on […]

Let’s Be Real: We All Want to Succeed

The term “success” may only have secular connotations in the minds of most Christians, but we cannot deny that every one of us has some concept of success. Success, in itself, is not a bad thing; it is man’s skewed concept of success that causes problems. I do not, in any way, exempt Christians from […]

Intentionality and Hospitality: They Go Together

It was January 12, 2016, and I was having a rotten day. I’d just gotten an email from my best friend in the world and she was having a hard time. Back home, friends were getting sick, breaking up, moving away, and everything seemed hard. As for me, I’d been in Taiwan for about a month and I’d […]
