"Just Around the Riverbend!"

Hi, my friends! It's been a while! So is it just me, or do you ever feel like you're running a never-ending marathon in the very last place with absolutely no chance of placing---let alone winning? Welp, that's exactly how I feel right now. I blinked, you blinked, we all blinked.....and the end of May is staring us in the face. Boy how time does sprout wings and fly. I know that these sayings are cliche, but they’re cliche for a darn good reason. Speaking of the rapid passage of tim

Timing is everything.

  Trust in the Lord with your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6   I don’t know about you, but I am a person that thrives in newness. New beginnings excite me. However, before something changes usually there is a very uncomfortable time of preparation, waiting and not missing hints, whispers of the Lord and opportunities.   This is that kind of season for me. I have been

Now Hiring: One World Racer

Today I applied for a job. A real job. I haven’t applied for a job in over a year and if I’m being honest with you, it scares me. I’m not scared of having the job! Believe me, I’ll be absolutely overjoyed if I get it. What I’m most afraid of is rejection. The potential that my lack of work experience, large work gaps and age could prevent me from being hirable. Rejection is one of those fickle experiences that only you are capable of designing. If I never step out o

Traveling through Thailand!

My squad and I have been in Thailand for about two weeks now. The first week, my team and another team worked in Phang-Nga with an organization called Share the Love. Then we hopped on a bus for a 24 hour ride to Chiang Mai to meet up with the rest of our squad at the AIM base here in Thailand! At Share the Love, we did yard work, a special song at a church service, helped with a Bible contest for youth, ran an English camp, got to know the staff, saw a GIANT Scorpion (scary.), and saw God do a

Mosaic - A Prayer

Jesus, make a mosaic out of me. Take my broken pieces and make beauty of each and every one. Put it on display and use it to show people that their brokenness is beautiful, too. Jesus, thank You for loving every crack, crevice, and rough edge. Thank You for thinking that I am a work of art, but more importantly, thank You for being the Artist. Jesus, give me the eyes to see and the heart to appreciate the beauty in others. Thank you for making masterpieces out of dust. Amen.   You are

The One When We Formed a Band

Greetings from Chiang Mai! It’s been a WILD month and one that has I am SO excited to share about! Between splitting our time between two ministries in Thailand and taking a week of regular ministry off to serve with our parents, Thailand has by far been the busiest month of the Race. And I’m going to be honest; I wasn’t too excited for the two weeks we’d spend in Chiang Mai. Having left an incredible ministry in Southern Thailand after only a week and eagerly anticipatin

Legacy-The Very Beginning

We are in Nepal. It’s month 5 and our squad of 32 people just had team changes. Team Tent will remain forever in our hearts but in this new season I am now on a coed team and our name is Team Legacy. Our team is made up of Kaydan and Katherine Field (the beautiful married couple on our squad), Preston Robinson (prayer warrior and worship leader), Michael Pickett (Our team leader), Chandler Whidden (treasurer), and Kaysha Spence (former Team Tent member). God is so good because at some poi

Do You Want to Get Well?

Yesterday my team and I woke up in the wee hours of the morning to catch a 6:30 bus to Pokhara. After we got to the bus stop, put our big packs underneath the bus and prayed, a man came over to us begging. We have encountered so many beggars in Nepal, two of which became very close to the hearts of my teammates and me, but, of course, we can't dish out money for every beggar who crosses our path. This man who approached us at the bus stop had a limp. He was bitten in the leg by a dog, and

Q & A

Hello All! I opened the floor for questions a very long time ago and here they are, complete with my responses. If you have any more questions feel free to contact me here. I’m always open to talk. What have I been doing so far? My team has partnered with a different ministry every month and we basically just do whatever they ask of us. The majority of my time has been spent doing various kinds of manual labor (building a soccer field, fixing up houses, landscape cleanup) and spendi

Alive in Christ

A question that was asked in response to my last blog post was "what does it look like to receive Gods grace and to abide in it." In this blog post I will try to answer this question to the most biblical and God honoring way possible. I once heard a pastor quote "if someone tells you that they got hit by a semi truck while crossing the road and they approach you completely unchanged, then how much harder is it to believe someone that says they've had an encounter with Almighty God without portr
