I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.”
Matthew 9:37

God has been doing a number on me for sure!  Sometime since last summer.  I feel it all started when I picked up a copy of Max Lucado’s Outlive Your Life to do with my home Bible study group.  Actually … I guess that’s not completely true … as I’m sitting here reflecting on it, God’s been working … stirring my heart with small whispers for a while now.

I love that God works in this way.  Even more, I love that I’ve grown in my relationship with Him so that I can hear {and recognize} those small whispers.

God’s been putting people, blog posts, Scripture, Sunday school classes, songs, thoughts, experiences, bible studies, organizations … all right in front of me.  But what hit me hardest was a vision … I’ve never had a vision from God before … but this was a clear-as-day {scary} vision.  Not scary, as in nightmare … just scary as in how-in-the-world-would-this-ever-happen vision.

But … in the words of Steven Curtis Chapman … God is God, and I am not.  He has the privilege of the end picture, I do not.

This vision is big.  Bigger than myself, but not bigger than God.  Do I share this vision with you?  I’m not certain.  Fear says no way!  Sharing the voice of God and accountability says, go for it!

Let’s just say that everything. everything. that has come into my path over the last ten{ish} months has led me to this point … this trip to Africa.  And this trip to Africa is another stepping stone to the vision God laid before me.

I think for now, I’ll leave it at that … but please come back to tomorrow as I share more details on my upcoming adventure.
