Vulnerability in the Middle

I found myself imagining the Israelites as they stepped between the raging waters as shared in Exodus. Exodus 14:29 tells us that “the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on both sides.”  I imagine it was amazing to see but quite unnerving to participate in.

I Can Do ALL Things

Even when you have been through it before, each adoption is different and your emotions will get out of control periodically. Today is … Read More Waiting in the Wilderness |Shavasana

3 Hours = 1 Less

This morning I have been sitting here reflecting on yesterday where I attended an amazing event that seeks to pair children seeking their forever home and waiting families. It was amazing to see all the wonderful kiddos enjoying themselves, the many volunteers with hearts overflowing with love for them and above all the connections being made between families and waiting kiddos. It was 3 … Read More 3 Hours = 1 Less
