The adventure begins

So much of our life has seemed like one crazy ride after another, but we're about ready to plunge into a very different sort of adventure.

Empty nesting.

This was definitely not on my to-do list. At least not this soon. It was meant to be experienced in another half a dozen years, BUT, God has opened doors and we are so excited (and yes, nervous) about the future. We leave tomorrow to start the journey to take the kids to RVA, a boarding school for missionary kids in Kenya.

Our oldest has loved his time there for the past two years, so with his sister starting high school, I guess it was inevitable that the youngest would beg to go as well. So after six years of homeschooling, life will change tremendously for me.

They are excited about sports, new friends, and music lessons. I'm excited about their upcoming mid-term break when I can see them again in October!

Please keep us in your prayers as we step out in faith and this new adventure begins!

Be blessed,

The countdown begins. . .

Hot off the press!
When the first immigrants arrived at Ellis Island, they were looking for a piece of the American dream. Today they still arrive at our shores, believing they will find freedom and opportunity. Some do, but there are others who aren’t so lucky.

After months of writing, edits, and cover art, I'm feeling the anticipation of the upcoming release of Dangerous Passage!

While I still haven't seen a copy, my father-in-law just received one straight off the press!

If you'd like to read more about the background of the story, FamilyFiction has a great new feature article here.

There will be plenty more interviews and giveaways in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Happy reading,

Be blessed!

What is your calling?

Scott and I recently put together a video for a church in Texas about our testimony, and decided to share part of it here with you. It helps to answer the question 'what is your calling?'

Be blessed!
