God Provides For Your NEEDS So many times we plead for God to give us our desires while he is busy caring for our needs. Then we get confused as to why God didn’t give us what we asked for. And, we use God as a punching bag for not giving us our desires. Little [...]

Where Can I Travel With Purpose?

By |2018-11-01T16:16:54+00:00October 30th, 2018|Discipleship, Missions|

Our Purpose Behind Traveling Having the ability to travel with purpose simply involves asking ourselves one question... “What is my desire?” As Christians, if we claim to believe in the expansion of the Gospel, and intend to go somewhere with purpose, our desire must be to follow His call and go, wherever it is He [...]

It's Not Culture Versus The Bible... Culture might tell you that you need a certain degree in order to be a missionary or be a certified pastor, but the Bible does not. The Bible tells you point-blank what you need to do in order to be a missionary or a pastor. Make disciples. That’s in [...]

What Should I Go To School For?

The Trip That Transformed My Worldview Throughout most of high school I was never the one that wanted to get a degree. I never knew what I wanted to do after graduation. I didn't know what I was good at and I wasn't sure what I was passionate about. The thought of college and a [...]

Can I Study Abroad And Earn My Degree Online?

Dropping Out of College I dropped out of college to move to Haiti. I never had anticipated doing anything else but getting my degree my entire life, but ironically, sitting in a classroom was never my cup of tea. Dropping out of college should have been a harder decision. But for a gal who doesn’t [...]

Set The Captive Free

Complacent Church Why is it that we try walking humbly with God without doing anything? Why is it that we want God's grace for ourselves but want God's wrath for everyone else? Why do we try to love God, but not love people? For the longest time, I would go to church and do the [...]

The Funny Thing about Obedience

When I Said, Yes... When I said yes to God, I had no idea what that meant. When I said yes to ministry, I had no idea how to serve. When I said yes to Haiti, I had no idea how my life would change. That’s the funny thing about obedience, when we say yes [...]
