A new journey...


We are still heading to Uganda with WGM- but I, personally, am starting a new journey. God has been growing in me a passion to care for my body and my family with intention. I want to honor Him with my body. I discovered Young Living essential oils over a year ago and have been exploring their usefulness and benefits for my health and the health of my family as we serve Him in Uganda. Our past term was challenging and stressful, and essential oils are a part of our journey as we continue growing in emotional and physical health.

This body of mine is the temple of the living God and He has called me to serve Him overseas. I don't know where He has called you, but I know He wants you to love and serve with all your heart and with all your strength. Essential oils are a natural way to support our bodies' systems so we can do what we were created to do. So that's one reason I'm so passionate about this product. Stay tuned for more reasons why I am starting to explore the business side of Young Living.

If you are interested in learning more about essential oils I would love to connect with you on Facebook. If you have already been exploring the world of essential oils and want to take the next step you can sign up as a wholesale member on my team.

Ash Wednesday

I last wrote during Advent and now it is Lent. I love Lent. Yes, that's weird. But I feel strangely at home during this desert season. Perhaps I know that He loves to show up during the hard times... I love this article from 1890: The Alluring.

"Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her." -Hosea 2:14

This year we are preparing to return to Uganda, raising funds and raising our kids... it is a hectic season. And so I crave the solitude of the desert. We are fixing our eyes on the God we can trust in this crazy season! I AM: 40 Reasons to Trust God. And I am already loving it.

And for me, I found this free Lenten ebook (just subscribe to her blog and you get the book!). Sabbath and Lent two of my favorite things! What if we could give up one day a week for Lent and see what God can do?


For further Ash Wednesday inspiration:

a slow thaw


the broken way: this book has been my journey companion as we have returned to the states broken and weary.

we have just returned from our renewal and growth program and i've barely begun to process all Jesus has been doing in my heart. but my words are returning to me. my desire to get out and snap photos is coming back. i'm coming back to life! like a slow thaw... and it's good. i want to lean in and keep doing the work. i want all that He has for me. i want to be a comforting journey-mate to those who are broken.

stay tuned to this space as i keep processing.

One thing...


"One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and {insistently} require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord {in His presence} all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty {the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness} of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple." -Psalm 27:4 Amplified

It's really all quite simple. One thing. He just asks for one thing. Dwell. Stay. Abide. Let nothing break your fellowship. Let nothing block your communion. Let nothing distract or tear you away from Him.

And yet... I fail to do that one thing. He asks so little. The instruction is simple. But it's everything. He wants all of me. All the time, Intense. But not in a striving, doing way. It's a consuming. a filling. a surrender. And it's freeing!

He wants me. Just me. all of me. {all of me- the joy and the sorrow. the willingness and the frustration. the smiles and the cold glares}. And in return... I get all of Him. whoa.

****
This verse is so rich. I'm camping out here. Stay tuned for the two parts of the one thing: behold and inquire.
