Don’t ask how I waded through two weeks of vacation footage of Cambridge, London, Pretoria, Soweto, Johannesburg, and Kruger together in a weekend. It was ugly. I only expect Ashley, Britt, Celeste and Jan Suitt to watch this in its entirety (Celeste, because she’s the harshest music critic) –for the rest of you, all the babies can be found at 12:26. Safari starts at 15:15. You’re welcome. SO blessed to be able to take this […]
“Instead of proudly trusting in his own or others’ expertise, [Namaan] was called to the soul work of humility. As a result, he not only got a cure for his body but a new relationship with God and a soul infused with grace and joy. Suffering led to his salvation. This does not even begin to answer the question, “Why does God allow so much evil and suffering in the world to persist?” Nor does […]
A perfect way to end the summer! Love my family and I’m super grateful to have had the time to get away and unwind after a crazy summer!
I’m celebrating Advent this year which I haven’t done in three years, and I’m so excited! It’s been three years too long. I admit, it feels a little strange and lonely to read aloud in the corner of my room but I believe it’s right to feel this way. Celebration and reflection are always better when shared and although I have a remote group of Believers I’m observing Advent with, it’s being done so in a […]
Growing up is complicated business. This is not a new discovery for myself as I’ve jammed ear buds filled with angst-y music or woken up in the middle of the night with searing growing pains in my legs, or sat on the lawnmower controlling what felt like the only thing in my life: several million subservient blades of grass, wondering if I will ever get to experience the big world out there, away from Greenbrier. I […]
Playing catch-up on edits tonight (or early morning -guh). Most of you guys know I kind of burned out almost a year and a half ago on my wedding and portrait work so it’s encouraging that I’m deciding to pick up more work, slowly since then. I wasn’t surely how burned I was until now, and I’m not beyond repair. A huge thanks to the few who listened and encouraged me when I […]
My travel schedule has finally started the downhill slide that I confess that I look forward to. As much as I love to get out of my routine and meet new people and eat Panda Express, most days I’m content to be in my house and more importantly, abide in my stretchy pants after 5:00 PM. It’s been an absolutely fantastic and busy summer and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be a part […]
My seven month old niece and nephew, Cora and Davis practiced celebrating the fourth today. We waved flags and wore paper hats. So good to be home for the next few days! Happy fourth of July!
