Pre-trip Excitment

Hello All!
Three weeks from today I will, God willing, be leaving for India!
I thought I would put a small pre-trip post up for those of you who have accessed this blog  already in anticipation. Believe me, I'm excited too!
Most anxieties have past for now.
But the excitement definitely has not.
I continually see God moving things into my life in preparation, through things such as: people with huge hearts, conversations with followers of Jesus and people who don't believe, spontaneous challenges, books assigned for classes I was led to take, and opportunities on campus to be a leader-- learn, tutor, worship, befriend.
And teaching me to live well for Him in the midst of stress, mistakes, and growing pains.
It is plain to see I have been blessed.
Neither has God made it a secret that He values, adores, and pursues me every day.

I hope this page can be water for our relationship. I am sure it will help you know me better, and I pray you will respond as if in a balanced conversation.
Most of all, I hope you grow in relationship with God.

Much love in Christ,


  1. A Song of Ascent — Psalm 121

    I lift up my eyes to the hills.
    What is the source my help?
    My help comes from the Lord,
    Maker of the heavens and the earth.
    God will not allow you to stumble, Your Guardian will not slumber.
    Indeed, the Guardian of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps.
    The Lord is your Guardian, your shelter at your side.
    The sun will not smite you by day nor the moon by night.
    The Lord will guard you against all evil;
    God will guard you, body and soul.
    The Lord will guard your going out
    and your coming home, now and forever.

    Go with God my precious son~*Angels shall go before you and guide you~* I love you, Mom
