Love > Fear

So a few weeks ago I shared that the Lord was moving me into an area that was totally out of my comfort zone, but that I was learning to “trust the Shepard” in the process. This story of mine is probably the bravest step I’ve ever taken in my 40 years of life…..or maybe […]

Will you be my friend?

Why Africa?

So maybe this isn’t exactly related to brave living, but I get asked the question alot, “Why do you love Africa so much?”  It’s one of those things that is very hard to explain, but a few years ago a came across a great article that summed my thoughts up on Botswana. I posted it […]
