The Joy Of Letting Go

Surrender. To submit fully to some one elses authority. Let me say that again. To submit fully to some elses authority, this is what it means to surrender. That’s a little intimidating because as humans we like control, and we certainly don’t give it up easily. Especially when pride is involved, it feels impossible! As […]

The Fear That Consumed

When I was a little girl, I had an unnatural fear of death.  Not the kind of fear that all young kids inevitably face – the fear of one day growing old and slowly fading away. No, I was paranoid. I had to wash my hands three times after touching anything that I hadn’t deemed […]

“I never thought of that before…”

Since being in Ukraine, my team and I have been involved with English camps here. It has been an incredible opportunity for us to connect with the youth!
