There’s always room for one more. This was a saying I heard all the time growing up. In Nigeria, there was always room for one more in the car and our lives. In Haiti, I encountered this thought process again as we fit as many people as we could into transportation to get from place… Continue reading There’s Always Room for One More
So. I’ve been challenged this week on taking risks. I tend to play it safe when it comes to certain things. I tend to stay inside my comfort zone-willing everything to stay the same. God is not about letting everything stay the same. Following God means taking risks. If you don’t take risks, you’ll never… Continue reading Step Off The Ledge
730 days. 17520 hours. 1051200 minutes. That’s how long it has been since my life changed. Well, it’s coming up in about a month.

I just finished reading Shannan Martin’s new book, The Ministry of Ordinary Places. I started reading it because I simply love Shannon… Continue reading Ordinary Places
I just finished Remember God by Annie F. Downs. OH MY GOODNESS! The way she is honest and vulnerable with her story makes me cry. Her story speaks to my story in that I also wonder if He is truly good and truly kind. If He doesn’t just tell me what I want to hear… Continue reading Remember God.
