Welcome to the Adventure

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to come check out my little blog. I hope you enjoy what you read here and that you maybe find some encouragement among the pages! This is just a space where I want to share life with you. The way I look at it, we’re all on the same type of journey – we’re all on a journey to “find ourselves.” It’s an adventure of discovering our identity and learning who we truly are. And from my experience, life kind of likes to throw the book at us. Just when I feel like I have it figured out, it seems like my life always gets flipped upside down.
And I don’t think I’m the only one who feels like this. [Anyone else out there?]
So that’s what this is. I want to share the story of my normal life. As underwhelming as it may be sometimes, it’s my reality and I hope you’ll be able to relate.

Welcome to my adventure! I’m glad you’ve decided to join.

What I’m Reading


You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.

James 3:18 MSG


I’m an Adult

I was instantly overwhelmed with panic. I ran out of our little house and into the base to find someone to help me figure out what to do. Luckily, our base leader Judy was a nurse before joining YWAM. At this point, neither one of us really knew what was going on, but we were both assuming appendix. He was laying on the floor right inside the door of the house, almost in tears because of the pain. He wasn’t breathing well, he was panicking, and every once and again his body would just seize up with the pain.
