Ive begun to realize that none of the subjects I wrote about engaged my deepest feelings, that there was a great chasm between what I cared about and what I wrote about. Why? What was I afraid of? Myself, most of all, it seemed. + here’s to saying yes... more often ✨cheers

I take a ton of notes in class and during sermons to help me pay attention to what's being taught. If my hands aren't busy, my mind will check out. While I have a stack of filled up notebooks, I rarely go back through them. This morning, while waiting for a conference call to start, I flipped open this one and it was so very relevant to my day today! While the passage is specifically speaking about wives and husbands, submitting to one another out of reference for Christ is something that all believers should practice. Am I truly seeking to do what's best for the other person? Am I seeking to be right? Or am I seeking that God be glorified? If you keep reading, be careful!! The concept that we are easier to love when we display the Fruit of the Spirit, will step on your toes -- or at least it did mine! Who am I to point a finger at someone else being difficult to love when I fail at most elements of Fruit of the Spirit a majority of the time. Welcome to the Monday reality check! 😂 #mondaymotivation #realitycheck #happymonday #fruitofthespirit

I almost don’t even want to record this day as the first day of 3rd grade for Izzy and 1st grade for Judah. I have no excitement to be starting another school year. . . I was looking back through all our other bright and smiley first day of school pictures in the years gone by. Izzy started kindergarten in N.ireland at a public school in my home village, she ended her kindergarten year homeschooled in our home on Palawan. She went from a British phonetic alphabet to an American one, while all the time constantly hearing Tagalog. . Her first grade year started in Palawan and that January we began our big move to another island. We homeschooled on the road for months between various missionary Guesthouses and even a trip to the States. . . I remember this time last year being finally so full of hope and confident that we would be able to give her a consistent school year. She started second grade in our new mountain village home on the island of Luzon, (the same day Danny and I started our new language learning and Judah entered kindergarten.) Of course February 1st began the months of complete change, travel, upheaval and we struggled to finish her second grade. . . As she starts third grade today and Judah first grade, I know this year ahead holds more change. I can’t offer them the consistency I am sure that they need. I don’t know where we will be living in the next 6 months. I don’t know how to guide them through it all and how to help them thrive, despite the change and the struggles. . . And yet, I want to remember and record the reality of this first day. Because as desperate as I feel today, I know our God is a redeemer of hard and difficult places and seasons. I know that He has been in control of their little lives each day we have traveled the globe with a heart to serve Him and bring glory to His Name. . . I am giving this year to Him with empty hands, I have nothing to bring. But because of His great grace I believe we will receive the very best that He has for us as we seek Him first above all things. . . Danny begins his radiation treatment today. This is another days of firsts for us in which we step out in faith.

In a book like Esther with so many different characters, sometimes it helps to play each part 😁 . . Head to our website or FB page if you missed part 2 of SAFE yesterday. Be reminded as you head into this week that God is at work even when you can’t see it.

Why is Ryan wearing these hats you might ask? Well, you gotta listen to yesterday’s sermon to find out! 😛 bottom line: God is at work even when you can’t see it. BE CONFIDENT 🙌🏼

God has been challenging me to love people lately. ⠀⠀ Like, not the normal, everyday, worldly love. The real, selfless, sacrificial love that’s hard. ⠀⠀ And that’s what I want to challenge you to do. Because loving people sacrificially, abandoning your own dreams and desires to serve them, is showing people Christ’s love. ⠀⠀ Love the ugly, the smelly, the annoying, the dumb, the ones who don’t use blinkers while driving (drives me CRAZY), and especially the ones who are hardest to love. ⠀⠀ Because love is how the kingdom is built. ⠀⠀ Tag a friend to challenge her too👇🏼 #wholeheartedlymessy

HAPPY • BIRTHDAY • to this sweet, handsome fella!!! We met Isaac almost 5 years ago in Kenya, & he has been a part of our family ever since. Goodness... we miss our kiddos. They continue to teach us SO MUCH & have made an incredible impact on how we view & parent our boys. • Sponsorship is a powerful opportunity to show that we are BETTER TOGETHER, friends. Even now, Haiti babe is a sponsor child... meaning another family is choosing to serve our baby boy by helping to provide funds necessary to care for him until he is home. As a mama & as a sponsor, I am humbled & grateful to be a part of GOD’s global glory... “HE’s got the whole world in HIS hands.” #joyinthejourney #coopercrew #bettertogether #adoption #eternallystrong #eternallysunny #travel #explore #adventure #ourtribe #ittakesavillage #chosen #boymom #raisingarrows #family #weightofthewait #exceedinglyabundantly #faithoverfear #lampandlight #dosomething #globalinyourlocal #advocate #create #empower #educate #gather #go #bfrkids #morethanasponsorship #nakupenda

If you wait til you're 100% prepared for something it's usually too late. Feeling fear doesn't mean you're doing the wrong thing. Most things in life worth fighting for take some risk! I am not a natural "risk taker" but God has challenged me over and over again to face my fears and I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't feel the fear and do it anyway. If you looked at my life now, you would think all I do is take risks! I've said this before and I'll say it again, God has a way of taking our weaknesses and turning them into strengths by His power. Surrender your weakness to Him and watch what He does. I can guarantee you will be amazed!

⠀ Nothing special; if you’re reading this just wanted you to know I got nothing but love for you⠀ ⠀ Yesterday was #nationalphotographyday what are the chances I got together with two of the dopest people, thanks @taylorrjames_ and @manoaraine for the dopest weekend. ⠀ ⠀ The internet is a crazy thing, in the palm of your hand you have something that can connect you to a person or people that are on the other end of the world. We could do in a moment, what even our grandparents had to wait weeks to do something as simple as having a conversation. ⠀ ⠀ Speaking of connection, one of my favorite creators, @itswillcarmack said a friend of his was in Vegas. So I slid in the DM's 😂 and we met up the next day. It turned out to be such a fun day that was filled with encouragement and new learns. ⠀ ⠀ To all my friends out there, connecting with people is so important. Idk who said "Stay away from strangers" but whoever did was uptight and didn't like people. Everyone's a stranger at some point until you meet them. ⠀ ⠀ I urge you to connect with someone outside of your circle. It's so worth it. Be present, be engaged and get connected. To all my friends that I've met in the past 2 weeks, I hope our conversations can attest to this hahah. ⠀ ⠀ You made it this far, do you feel me on this? Have you made any cool connections with great people recently?

Loving these One in Christ cards from @tinytheologians! These are a great way to teach Ethan how much Jesus means to me. These cards are perfect for a multitude of ages. There’s one large word to remember how we are one with Christ. Theres also a paragraph of more info to discuss with your older kiddos. My favorite part is the Scripture on each card: perfect for memory verses! These release next week so stay tuned for more details!

Nothing is impossible with God, even that mountain that you face can be conquered and claimed through His power, strength, and love. Remember who it is that walks with you, who it is that died for you, who it is that loves you and then say to that mountain MOVE! ⛰

Monday morning reminder: We are as safe as we can ever be if we entrust our lives and our future to Him.

Joseph told his brothers to not be distressed. Not to be angry with themselves because they sold him into slavery because God sent him before them to preserve life. God always has a plan for your life. Detours look like an inconvenience but God is shaping your heart. Let Him do it! Keep an attitude of forgiveness. Minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, release them. By releasing them, you are releasing yourself. ❤️ #conversationswithjesus

One of the most fascinating historical features is the archetype of the garden. Interestingly, each civilization has its own version of a garden in their civilization stories. The garden symbolizes cosmic nostalgia. It’s green features don’t just represent life and beauty, but the point to fulfillment of life—absolute satisfaction of our deepest hearts desires. The Babylonians created the hanging gardens of Babylon. The Egyptians created their pyramids to be fashioned after a garden. Of course the Jews had Eden. We as humans have been constantly building gardens because it represents something we remember and yet never had. It’s the home we long for which we’ve never been. It’s what governments try to recreate and fail. It’s the ultimate utopia. Because of Adam, we long for it and we are cut off from home. It’s not until you get to the second Adam do we realize that home we’ve always wanted is ours. - @brendan.saltvick

I love our memorization verse this week....We WILL most certainly meet people in our life which will challenge our belief of the gospel and the Word of God. "Do you really believe this happened?" "Do you really believe God will look down upon that?" "Do you really believe that sin is damning?" Paul tells us in v. 8 of Galatians that if even an angel of heaven preaches a distorted gospel contrary to the truth, "let him be accursed." In v. 10 we see we can't please man by going along with his distorted opinion and still be a servant of Christ. We as Christians will definitely struggle with sin in the flesh until our day of full sanctification in heaven. Thank you Jesus for repentance and grace. However, we should never, ever waver in the truths of God's Word. ❤🎀 . . . . . . . . . . . . #christian #christianity #christianwomen #intentionalliving #givemejesus #deeplyrooted #womenofgod #proverbs31woman #goodnewsfeed #christianwriter #christianwoman #instabible #jesusgirl #graceupongrace #instachristian #goodmorninggirls #goals #lampandlight #womenoffaith #givemejesus #womenintheword #wellwateredwomen #womenlivingwell #livelifebeautifully #shereadstruth #bible #biblestudy #womeninfaith #butfirstjesus #jesusislord #jesus

"What I wish to affirm is that we do need to charitably share and serve—emotionally and spiritually as well as temporally—but we must fill ourselves at the fountain of living water, at the feet of our Heavenly Father himself, or we have nothing of real strength to give..." -Sister Holland Just coming off of a relaxing camping trip with the family.

I LOVE these ladies, Keani and Jasmine! Members of Crossroads Church Randy and I recently retired from as senior pastors, so we can pursue more with YWAM and Steps to Breakthrough. We celebrated Keani, on the left, at her Hawaiian Luau Bridal Shower this past Saturday. I have had the joy of doing her and Kelii's premarital counseling with Randy who will be officiating their wedding in October! Miss Jasmine? Well, her and Austin's wedding is coming in October, too! We've been sooo blessed to see Jesus grow in these couples, as they set their hearts and lives upon Him. I set my heart on your precepts and pay close attention to all your ways. Psalms 119:15 TPT @keanialoha @smineyleomo

A few nights ago I woke up from a terrible dream, terrified & ended up encountering the strong presence of Jesus! It was one of those moments where you feel like your dream is actually your reality & if I went back to sleep the nightmare would continue. ⠀ ⠀ In that moment, at 4am, my hubby not only prayed over me and our house but encouraged me to speak the name of Jesus over myself. So there I was, in tears saying as confidently as I could “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” over myself & my mind. 😭💗⠀ ⠀ And in a moment I thought there was no hope, where I was full of fear- the power of the name of Jesus, the powerful caring presence of God began to ease my mind & I was able to fall asleep in peace! ⠀ ⠀ 👉🏻👉🏻MAYBE you have a situation that’s causing you to fear, negative thoughts you can’t get rid of, or you’re lacking courage & just need HIM to interfere. ⠀ ⬇️⠀ Heres your practical step: speak the name of Jesus OUT LOUD over yourself a few times. Speak it with authority knowing that He has defeated the enemy! There is power in the name of Jesus that can renew our thoughts and ease anxiety. ⠀ ⠀ There is no other name like Jesus. No other name that can save and heal and free! & all you have to do is speak it! 💪🏼🙌🏻

“As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him. And he did not permit him but said to him, "Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you." And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled.” - Mark‬ ‭5:18-20 . NEW POST! Monday Devotion: Go Tell Your Friends #linkinprofile

Truth for today: you are who God says you are- not your past, not a person- but God determined your worth. And he says you are very good, made with love, a product of His grace. 🌿 #findwondrousthings #lifelivedbeautifully #shereadstruth #wellwateredwomen #lampandlight #illustratedfaith #fwtjournal #wordbeforeworld⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #warroom #prayer #prayers #pray #bible #prayscripture #prayerjournal #journalprayers #journal #praying #biblejournaling #soulscripts #encouragment #devotional #biblestudymoments #bedeeplyrooted #womenoffaith #womenintheword #godsword #thatsdarling #journal #praytheword
