Tonight Elle prayed, “Jesus, thank you for everything that we will celebrate tomorrow. Thank you for taking our sins and our sickness into your body and rescuing us.” I’m not going to lie, it’s been very eye-opening for me to have to explain America to these little eyes who are seeing it for the first […]

  • Anonymous - I have enjoyed following your blog and hearing how God is using you and the things that He is teaching you. It has been such an encouragement to me in my own journey of life. I was wondering if you are going to post again so that I can be praying for you and your family?
    Thank you so much!

The mail came just as we were walking out the door, in it a surprise package for the girls. Tearing into the paper, they found crayons and coloring books and one precious item that Emma immediately grabbed. “I snuggle with this in the car,” she announced. The 45 minute drive to a friend’s house was […]

A few months before leaving for Uganda, I heard something from the beautiful people out in Redding, CA about four phrases they teach to their youngest children’s classes to begin sealing truth on their little minds and hearts early. The phrases are: God is good, nothing is impossible, Jesus already won, and everyone is important. Immediately, I […]

  • Marca Mixon MacGregor - HI! I know this post has been out for a while, but I just read this and your writing is such a blessing, I wanted to share my immediate thought upon reading “Our family is best (well, that one isn’t Biblical, but we say it anyway).” What about James 1:17 “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” ?ReplyCancel

  • Abigail - This is so,so good. I don’t have any children yet but I so need this myself! Thanks for sharing…you are a beautiful mama to your girls!ReplyCancel

When I was 21 years old, my prayers for my future children began to take shape. It was as if I knew they were already alive, not necessarily waiting for me yet, but growing up in their own places and living their lives apart from mine for a season. That year, I began to pray […]

  • Brianne Peterson Talmadge - God has written you such a beautiful story! I love how he not only answers your prayers but gives you so much more than you could even asked for! We just got a new foster son and I’m learning to pray for him in ways I couldn’t have imagined. His pain and grief are beyond my understanding but I trust God will fill in the gaps and answer prayers I don’t even know to ask for! Praying for you and your girls!ReplyCancel

When I moved to Uganda three years ago, these were some of the first faces that became familiar. They live in a home for displaced children, most at least partially orphaned, but not adoptable. They are loved, but resources for anything more than food are scarce. I spent most of my time with these kids […]
