Homemaking in Heaven
Do you ever underestimate how easy it is to get comfortable? We do. As humans, in whatever field we live in (mission or lay), our natural bent is to nestle down with an identity based on our personal situation. As Christians, we are instructed from the Word of God to BUILD our life on the kingdom of God! That life is not based off of a place, location or job in this world. It’s based on a person. Jesus. We pray that this blog further encourages your life with Christ to be what leads your identity in whatever kingdom building we do here on earth.

Our desire comes out of two typical lives who have both worked overseas doing missions and also lived the typical American life of working 9-5 and being a stay at home mom. We hope you are pressed to Jesus from both experiences, because both are significant in light of Christ!

Scanning the gymnasium full of wedding guests over and over, looking inside and outside going in circles, I couldn’t find my 2 year old anywhere. I was able to keep my emotions paused while I searched for her at first, but… Read more
There was a time while Alex and I lived in India that I was asked to play my violin at the Tibetan school’s talent show where we were teaching English. I heartily agreed and started preparing a song with another American friend who would accompany me on the guitar. We met a few times casually… Read more
Persecuted for Righteousness “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they… Read more
A Personal Testimony and Exhortation This is part of my story. No, all the specifics may not apply to you, but I pray it can exhort and remind you, dear brother or sister, of how He has brought us out of our “futile ways” into being called “holy” by the precious blood. “As obedient children,… Read more
