Missionary Mama


From the ages of 19-25, I traveled to 20 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East just to share the love of Christ with the nations of the world. I never felt more in my element than when my feet were on foreign soil, traveling to tribal villages for outreach, and holding African babies.

But then our lives changed courses, which landed my husband and me in the D.C. area where we still are today – 10 years and 3 kids later. I will be completely honest with you – my heart wrestled against the will of God. I wanted to be there – not here. I wanted to do that – not this. But then I realized the problem – my “I” had to die.

Glorifying God in the Mundane

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31

In this season of my life, God has called me to be a stay at home mom to three beautiful girls. Two years ago, He opened my heart to the joys of homeschooling and I am committed to this journey for the long haul.

I have learned over the last six years that I can glorify Christ just as much when I bandage my daughter’s knee as when I bandaged the wounds of an orphan in Sudan. What matters most to Christ is not the activity or work I do, but the heart and attitude I put behind that work.
