Now, what?

Now, we learn to become a missionary! We learn to turn those sacrifices into choices. We stop feeling lonely & start making friends. We replace fatigue with excitement. We let go of anxiety & find peace. We don’t feel defeated, just courage to win. We stop doubting & learn to trust. We always know everything…

Sharing this Christmas season!

What if social status was measured by happiness, instead how much money you have in the bank? Some people eat food they cooked from what they bought at the grocery store. Some people can order their food, and have someone else cook it. Some people really have to work to feed themselves for just one…

Fitting In!

You try & try, over & over again, to fit in with the world. You think you’ll be happy when everyone likes you. You just want to feel part of something! All you want is to feel wanted. You want to feel happy & loved. So, you try & try, over & over again to…

Trust the process

You don’t know, What will happen tomorrow. You don’t know, Where life will take you. You don’t know, How you will feel. You don’t know, Why things happen. You just, Don’t know. You can’t plan, Your whole life. It will just happen, The way it’s supposed to. And nothing you do, Can ultimately change that….

Birthday Goals?

So, today’s a weird / crazy / awesome day… . . . Today is my birthday, and I don’t know how to feel because I try to do this thing every year; I try to spend my birthday in a new country every year, so I can remember that birthday, and that country. But, for…

The person in the mirror…

Look in the mirror. Who do you see? What do you see? Does it make you happy? Does it make you feel proud? Do you recognize who you see? . . . The most important person is that person staring back at you; in that mirror. That person sees your flaws, your failures, your dreams,…

A Time For Everything!

Have you ever asked yourself the question: “What am I still doing here?”. . . . Well, I have. And, I know it’s never a good question to ask yourself because it very rarely has a good answer. (the answer to that question usually discourages you.) You see… Usually, when you ask yourself that question…

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future. -Robert H. Schuller . . . So, before I begin, I should start by saying that I don’t know the person who said that quote, but, when I read it, I immediately remembered one of the main reasons why I made the decision to live here,…

Fire!

Have you ever wanted to see a community work together within seconds? . . . Just come to chile (more specifically, Quillota). Seriously, I’ve lived here for 1 months now and I’ve already seen 3 fires. And, although fires are usually scary and unpredictable, being here and experiencing them in another country has added an…

My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now. . . . So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out…

Free Love! (your Sunday reminder) 

* * * Please read ’til the end! Thanks! * * * Jesus, the son of God, literally stood in front of death to save you! Think about it this way: Jesus was just walking by and he saw you in trouble, so, he came over and stood in front of you to protect you…
