Feeling the need to encourage my younger sister-in-law to vote, I said to her, “I don’t care if you vote for exactly who your parents tell you to vote for. Your vote is VERY important. And that means a lot, because I can assure you that your parents probably vote very differently than I do!” I believe, a vote is more than just a voice. A vote holds with it the hope of the world; that justice can reign on earth, as it does in heaven.
Hiking the Grand Canyon brought on unexpected challenges, that brought me to a better understanding that a Holistically healthy life breeds acts of compassion.
This weekend my wife and I moved from an apartment where we’ve spent the past two and half years into our first home. I’m still in pain! After hours and hours of packing up boxes, loading them into the moving truck and taking them off the moving truck, we are now at the overwhelming stage [...]
Day in and day out In continuing my series on a recent trip to Nicaragua, I’ve been thinking a lot about the people I met on the trip. You might immediately think I’m talking about the children and adults we work with in Nicaragua. I am very excited to talk about them soon, but not [...]

There is no doubt that any election is an important and historical event. We should care about elected leaders, their ideas and what they stand for. But let’s not loose sight of the most monumental opportunities of hope we may ever face.
When you think about poverty through this lens of broken relationships… does it change your view? Stop picturing children in torn clothing in huts in Africa and start envisioning business men, your neighbor, yourself. Hold up a mirror and look poverty in the face.
What is your diarrhea medicine of choice? Do you buy the white chalky stuff, the pink chewable tablets or the liquid form? I usually chose the one that works almost immediately; you know that small pill in a travel size pouch. I ask this question because for most of us diarrhea is usually not much [...]
Do you feel crushed under the weight of that statement? Statistics can be alarming. But much like the alarm that wakes you up in the morning – it might make you move initially – but you won’t think about it until you hear it again tomorrow. And for a moment we might drop our jaws [...]
If you travel to South Sudan, you will within 15 minutes of your arrival realize that it’s a harsh place. The new country born just a year ago is having a new beginning after nearly melting away under the heat of Africa’s longest civil war. All systems collapsed under the weight of the war; health, [...]
