Welcome little one!

Our sweet little one is here and though this mama has been a bit behind, we are celebrating 3 weeks with our daughter Ada.

If there is one takeaway I have learned it is how far from in control I really am in life. This might sound silly and obvious but up until the birth of our daughter and the recovery of a c-section, I haven’t had any other experiences that have so clearly affirmed that truth.

I would love to say that I welcomed it gracefully, but in all honesty it has been a big challenge for me. However, every day I get to learn more about this precious child, I get to witness in awe my husband so naturally taking care of our little one, and I hope to lean into my faith even more to be the mom that He wants me to be. Because if I have learned anything, it’s that I can’t do anything on my own without His grace and mercy and that is my peace.

A few of my personal favorites.

Big changes

The title is not only to significant to our growing family, but oh goodness has my belly grown. It is so unreal that we are already so close to the end of these nine months of pregnancy, but I am so thankful for each one and the incredible growth of this little one.

Should I be taking pictures or should I be living in the moment…

Malawi- Kingdom Workers

Dear friends,

Today is the first of a series of posts about my experience in Malawi, Africa with non-profit organization called Kingdom Workers. Our mission was to learn, encourage, share, better understand the disability ministry program in Malawi, worship with those in the village, and finally sing our praises with 500 children at Bible school, teaching them songs in English. Beyond that goes prayer, personal growth, and shaking up how I think about many things.

Today is a letter to the children that have left the biggest impact on my heart. Each child is paired with a volunteer for their disability ministry. I think of each one of them often and am so honored to have met them.

Dear Isabella, Happiness, Emma,Toca, Neduzanyani, Chifuniro,
