Hey Delta, Glad My Kids Are OK Because Your Rep Ryan Davis Is Not

(I feel I should edit this a bit for clarity regarding the paragraph about the chaperone. The paragraph below, regarding the chaperone, is worded poorly, and I apologize. My intentions were not to make something seem like it is not. I was aware of the chaperone policy of China Southern. China Southern does state that… Continue reading Hey Delta, Glad My Kids Are OK Because Your Rep Ryan Davis Is Not

There’s a Flap for That

On a scale of 1-10 for embarrassing posts, I'm pretty sure my kids will rate this one a 15+. To be honest, a lot of people probably won't find it too tactful, but after reading "10 Things Every Woman Wants to Say to Their Gynaecologist" yesterday - and knowing today might be the dreaded day… Continue reading There’s a Flap for That

Marty Myers: Most Valuable Player

It hit me to the point of tears this morning that my life – and the lives of so many others – may soon feel a void. I saw a Facebook post not long ago that Marty Myers is in a “frail” state, and my mother messaged me yesterday to confirm what I had read.… Continue reading Marty Myers: Most Valuable Player

Braving Bangkok: Reporting for Duty

Bangkok. Wow, it’s different. Chiang Mai was a “small” city of three million people, or at least that’s how I came to view it after living there for nearly three years. Bangkok. Not so much. Everything you read about Bangkok is true. It’s big. It’s busy. It’s really warm. Wait. It’s monstrous. It’s crazy. It’s… Continue reading Braving Bangkok: Reporting for Duty

Miracles Never Cease

I’d be lying if I said the last few months have been easy. After Discipleship Training School and two months in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, I hit a bit of a lull, and I’ve been trying to get out of the funk ever since. I hardly realized for the last 12 weeks what has been… Continue reading Miracles Never Cease

Fenceless Gardens are Fruitless

Just read this quote on Facebook: "Boundaries keep the things you want in your life IN, like: love, joy, hope or peace. Boundaries will also keep OUT of your life what you do not want, like: disrespect, fear, hopelessness or anxiety. Boundaries help protect your priorities. Boundaries communicate value." - Danny Lee Silk It makes sense… Continue reading Fenceless Gardens are Fruitless
