5 Reasons Traveling to Another Country is Good for You

When I first decided to travel to another country it sounded fun, adventurous and like a once in a lifetime opportunity – plus I could post some cool pictures on Instagram and have an international experience that might impress people. It helps that I’m also single with no kids and little responsibility. This season in […]

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 […]

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 Have You Placed Your Hope In?

On EDTS outreach in 2016, my team spent most our time in mountainside villages sharing the gospel and distributing Bibles.

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 […]

What are you willing to give up for Jesus?

You know that feeling you get when you are totally out of your element – your palms get sweaty and it seems like the room you’re in is shrinking?  That’s how I felt when I found myself sleeping on the ground next to 60 high schoolers in a nation that is totally different from my […]

How do we Find Jesus in the Outdoors?

We’ve all been a part of some kind of team building exercise, low ropes course/initiative game or high ropes course. Some of us have been on multi-day or multi-week expeditions where we’re intentionally pushed to live in the “growth” (or groan!) zone. We’re encouraged to embrace the physical challenge, marvel in the majesty and beauty […]

How do You Move Mountains?

I love the mountains. I love waking up in a dew-drenched tent after a frigid night under the stars and feeling the stiffness of my legs as they stretch and creak like the wood of an old house. I love the shock of crisp mountain air as it surges into my lungs while I desperately […]

What’s the Point Anyway?

Purpose, Joy, and Satisfaction. At the end of the day, isn’t that what we want to see produced in our lives through what we do and who we spend our time with? I’ve thought about this ever since I could remember. As I was growing up, I can see that I attempted to try to […]
