For the Love of Judah

This May, churches around the world are being asked to tell a child “I’m here…for you.” Judah’s mom shared his story in a way that will touch your heart and show you how this little boy is changing lives of other children in the poorest of countries. Do you have 2.5 minutes to spare? Judah’s funny, full of life, joyful and silly. And you are going to fall in love with him — guaranteed! After you watch, let me know if you would like more information on how to sponsor a child for $38 a month, or how to bring a Compassion Sunday to your church!

The true me, no makeup or Pinterest-perfect creation to hide behind. It presents a side of motherhood … [Continue reading]

Happy Birthday, Mom


  Happy Birthday, Mom. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Miss you. That part of me that made everything else fit. It's been a year and a half...but I still reach for the phone for our daily talk to tell you some funny thing my girls did. I can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that you are truly not coming back to us here... But what a blessed girl I am to have been loved with such incredible depth by my mother.
