Do You Love Me?

As I was in the process of discerning whether the Lord was calling me back to school to pursue a Master’s Degree or to become a full-time missionary with Life Teen, I traveled to West Palm Beach, Florida to visit my sister, my brother-in-law, and my precious niece and nephew. I’ve always enjoyed visiting there. […]

Do You Want to Work for the Gospel?

“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few. . .” This is the beginning of one of my favorite scriptures. Even though I love this scripture, it can also be difficult and challenging. It saddens me because I have seen the reality that the “laborers for the harvest” (Christians who are willing to live […]

Prayers of Insanity?

What’s insane? Missionaries. For the past month some of the male missionaries at Covecrest have been getting up early and working out with a program called Insanity. Now, when I say early I mean 5 in the morning. For a guy straight from the west coast who was used to getting home at that time, that in […]

His Grace Poured Out Like Wine

As the last little bit of his wine was being poured out onto the ground, with tears rolling down his face, he prayed, “Jesus, help me to be the man you want me to be.” As a missionary, I have had some very blessed and grace filled moments, but seldom compare to this one. Recently, […]

Live Simply So Others May Simply Live

As missionaries have always tried to live simply, but as with anything, over time (especially while living in the U.S.) we become more and more comfortable, and it is easy to justify extras. Soon our conviction to live in solidarity with the poor is compromised by settling with a lifestyle that is just a little more simple than that of the others around us . . . not exactly the definition of Gospel poverty!

Blessed Am I Among Women: 2012 Life Teen Ghana Mission

So what have I learned? I have learned that the initial excitement and feeling of adventure of foreign missions has faded for me. But the good news is my intentions have been purified. I realized that a major motivation to go on foreign missions was selfishly motivated by what I got out of them. I now have a greater understanding of “It is better to give, than to receive.”

Children make the best Missionaries!

This is my third mission to Ghana in just over 2 years.  On my first trip, I came as a single missionary working with FMC (Family Missions Company) and throughout the mission I got to know and fell in love with my missionary husband, Erik.  God is faithful and made His will very clear to […]

A Few Good Men For Ghana

This summer Life Teen Missionaries are going back to Ghana, Africa and we need a few good men.  We currently have filled all our slots for women, but we could still use a few more men.  We are looking for college aged students or recent grads who are looking to take their faith journey to […]

Remembering Mexico

One year ago I met Christ in the deserts of General Cepeda, Mexico. Here’s a video a couple of my brother missionaries put together after we returned.

My Journey Into Missions Pt. I

I’m not growing into the man I thought I would be 4 years ago. I had plans like any other freshman in college. And, like any of those freshmen, they changed 5,345 times each week…
