August 2012 Ministry Update


Happy August!

I hope it’s cooling off by you – I know I’m enjoying the cooler (upper) 80s that I have come home to after being in the tropical heat of India!

My time in India was just as wonderful as I could have hoped. I couldn’t get enough hugs from those dear little girls. Read my summary of the trip in the picture below.

May 2012 Ministry Update


May has been a good month! I hope it has been good for you too!

At the beginning of the month, I spent a morning with the MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) sharing with them about my little girls in India. I got to spend time with my family and some friends in Illinois this month, which was such a blessing. We’ve also been doing a lot of prep work around the office for our new staff member (Dave Johnston) and his family to move to Knoxville from South Dakota. We have two interns who will be with us for the summer, and our Staff Retreat is coming up very soon! I love the summer months around here – always so full of people and activity. (more…)

March 2012 Ministry Update – Back to India!


Happy Spring!

Yes, you read it right – I am going back to India! I am very excited about returning to STEPS Home and the city of Chennai. I definitely left a piece of my heart there in December. Below you will find all of the details of my trip as well as how you can help! I am also building a small team to take over with me. If you know anyone who is interested in a summer mission trip to an orphanage, let me know, send them my way, or send them this link. (more…)

October 2011 Ministry Update


Happy Fall!

Can you believe that October is already over? I love this time of year, watching all the leaves change to beautiful warm colors. Here in Tennessee, many of the trees turn a bright red or orange. It’s simply stunning to take in a view of the turning trees on the mountains here.

I have exactly 30 days and counting until I leave on my trip for India – I am so excited! It was great to be home a couple of weeks ago and share about these precious girls and God’s heart for them. I am looking forward to another trip home for Thanksgiving and I hope that I get to see many of you back home while I’m there. (more…)

March 2011 Ministry Update


Happy spring! I hope that March entered like a lamb and left like a lamb for you. I love the newness of spring – it reminds me of how Jesus takes the dry, broken places in our lives and makes something beautiful out of it, like a well-watered garden. Here is my update for March (click on the picture to enlarge it for easier reading): (more…)
