The Journey’s Path

Comments Off on The Journey’s Path

Welcome to our new blog!

Over the past month I have been writing about our process, my walk with God, and our journey to Germany.

Comments Off on Talking up a storm

So, the last two weeks have been full of applications, reading and interviews. I’ve been kind of overwhelmed at how busy I’ve been at night, simply filling out paper work. It’s definitely something that I didn’t expect to be as difficult as it has been.

Why I Choose to Change

1 Comment »

The world is too easy, too hard to not let my life be a part of it. Working a daily job, living in the states, having friends who love us, a family always in reach—those are the norm and expected lives to lead. That life, that way of daily norm, that decided safety, is not real living. Not the way I want to live.
