Most young adults who attend a Christian college get more than an earful about servant leadership over the course of their four years. We say it with a smirk, an eye roll, and a small nod to our college president. But that shouldn’t mean we should ever think we’ve mastered it.

Everyone has places that they want to travel to. For me, it’s always been South America. I love the food and culture of South America, and I want to increase my fluency in Spanish. But God (my favorite Biblical phrase) often has other plans. Believe it or not, His plans are always better and more fulfilling too. So, in May of 2016, I returned to the continent of Asia for the second time in my life. This time: Cambodia. Continue reading “Mountain: Cambodia”
Overdue and Underway

But actually I have a serious post to write, so let’s just take a moment to enjoy the coolness of the armadillo (despite its digging habits) before I jump in.
Last week, on February 24, my little brother insisted on being the first in our family to arrive at the greatest place of all: Heaven. My life has changed drastically and my entire perspective on life has shifted.
3 Reasons I’m a Dirty, Rotten Liar
First reason is that I’m a sinner. Thought I’d get the real obvious one out of the way first. I’m a sinner, I fall waaaaay short of God’s holy standards, I’m in need of grace, lying is but one fatal sin among many. Praise God for the person of Jesus Christ. But moving on to reasons 2 and 3…
