It’s Time for Africa!


Hey everyone! As many of you know, tomorrow (January 3) I leave with my team of eight ladies for Uganda! I am really excited for this new adventure with such an amazing team and with my incredible Father. Here is basic layout of some of the things and some of the places we will be during our time on outreach.   January 3---Fly out of Chicago to Philadelphia. January 4---Fly out of Philly to Doha. Then Doha----> Entebbe, Uganda! (arrive in Uganda on Monday morning January … [Read more...]

A Real Look At Relationship (DTS Lecture Phase: Week 11)


This past week has been a little different than normal. Instead of having class here at the TC as we typically do, we made the 30 minute trip into town Monday through Friday to have class with the other DTS that is going on at the GMC (Global Mission Center). The topic this week was relationships and we got to hear so many great insights of a couple who are on staff with YWAM Madison. Everything they taught was very practical and it applies to all the relationships we have in life, not just … [Read more...]

Week Nine of DTS (Destiny and Father Heart of God)

Another week here in the cornfields of Wisconsin has come to an end. Time sure does fly when you are living life with Jesus loving people! Our schedule is always quite busy, and this week was no exception. On Monday afternoon we had outreach team meetings which is when those of us going to Uganda on outreach found out for sure who would be on our team. There were too many students who wanted to go to Uganda to be in one team, so now there are two separate teams who will be going to Uganda for … [Read more...]

A Tiny Glimpse into Spiritual Warfare Week.

This past! Where do I even begin? I guess at the beginning!  I'll do my best to give a brief summary of what God was up to this past week, but if you'd like to know more stories, please just ask, because I've got lots.  :) This past week it has been just half of the school here at the TC. The Rescue Ops focus was in Arkansas, and the Children @ Risk focus (that's me!) was here at the base just living life. It was really fun spending time with people on a more personal level, since … [Read more...]

Go Conference & Outreach Update!

This past week has been a bit different than most, as we were in Roach, MO for the YWAM Go Conference. The Go Conference is a week of teachings focused on missions and a total of five DTSes from various areas of the US were represented there. I have to be honest and say that at the start of the week, I was pretty uncertain if this time would actually bare any fruit. I'm not really into large gatherings of people who I don't know, and sometimes the whole feel of a conference can be intimidating. … [Read more...]

The Character of God (& other things) [Week Four of DTS Lecture Phase]

Four weeks, or one third, of lecture phase is already over! This past week has gone so fast and a lot has happened. Let me try to refresh my memory and share with you a brief overview and some highlights. Early tomorrow morning we head out  for Missouri where we will attend the Go Conference (a missions focused conference for YWAMers). I'll keep this update pretty brief for that reason, but here are some parts of my week. Monday through Friday we had teaching on the character of God. … [Read more...]

Week Three of DTS Lecture Phase!

The third week of lecture phase is complete! So much has happened in the last three weeks, especially this past week, that it is impossible for me to summarize it all for you. There has been teaching on four different topics and there has also been so many deep (and fun!) conversations with the awesome people here. I am seriously thankful for all the opportunities I have to learn and grow, and I am so blessed to be living this life.   Below are a few tidbits from three of the four topics … [Read more...]

DTS Lecture Phase: Week One

It's pretty mind-blowing to think that a week ago tonight I was hanging out with my parents and I had never met most of the 50ish people that I am now living life with day in and day out. Even though it has been only just under a week, we have all adapted to life here and connected with each other so well! What a unique opportunity and privilege it is to live in a community of people such as this; people who love God, love each other, and want to see His kingdom brought to earth. There are so … [Read more...]

First Post/India Journal

Hey people! Wow, I guess this is my first official post on a real blog! I can't wait to see where this takes me. I truly hope that you enjoy all of the things I post on here and that they are a blessing to you. I can not guarantee perfection (in fact, I already know there are some mistakes), but while this is also about developing my skills in writing/communication, my desire is that this blog would be more about my heart and the heart of God. Anyway, with all that said...Welcome! As seen in … [Read more...]
