As a kid, watching Toy Story changed my life. I mean me and my toys lives. It only took watching it once to convince me that when I wasn’t in my basement, all of my toys came to life. Thinking this made playing with my ninja turtles that much better as their secret lives were not so [...]

The Sound of Your Name The young man dressed in white spoke in peace, knowing why they had come. “You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is not here.” Did you [...]

One in Six Million…

I remember a couple years ago, walking to the highest peak of an unfamiliar mountain, making the steep hike up by a rocky, dirt road. I recall wishing I wore sturdier shoes, as the unevenness of the road was just begging to twist my ankles. We made our way to the top to visit a [...]

I’m sure that somewhere, whether at the grocery store, on a bag of chips, on random commercials, or on tv, you have seen an incredibly cute twig baby. And maybe you just haven’t asked any questions of what or who the heck it is. First off, ask more questions because a little twig baby being [...]

Masterpiece

Walking through parts of Philadelphia this month we have seen so many different styles of art; on walls, in homes, graffiti, professional murals, architecture, you name it, it’s here. Some of it dates back hundreds of years. All of it is beautiful, none of it is the same. Tonight I am struck with the reality [...]

The Story of Redemption

By | 2017-08-24T19:29:44+00:00 August 22nd, 2017|At the Movies|

All stories, fictional and not, have a theme or topic that is trying to be portrayed. For example, in one of my favorite movies ‘Star Wars: A New Hope,’ there is a theme of hope as the young Luke Skywalker stares at the twin suns of Tatooine hoping for a different life, as he not [...]

Kneeling, I clenched her one open hand with both of mine. Her body frail and tiny compared to mine. Hunched onto a tiny seat, hair falling on both sides of her shoulders, colorful earrings draping from her ears. Tattoos covering most of her uncovered, pale skin. I thought she was beautiful. I begged for her [...]

The unemployment rate in Haiti is 70%. To put that in context, during the peak of the Great Depression, the United States was around 30% unemployment. Living wage in Haiti is the equivalent of around $5.50 per day. Minimum wage in the United States is $8+ per hour. For every Haitian that has a job, [...]

If I Go There’s Just No Telling How Far I’ll Go

I have been living in Haiti for a month now. I had no idea what it would mean to live here when I left the states in June, and honestly, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to fully grasp the way that God works here. Every day I am in awe of Him and [...]
