I had to come to Honolulu this weekend for an interview to get global entry. To make it more fun and worthwhile, two of my favorites @gramforthelamb and @lmp.mfg came with me, and we made it a getaway weekend. We were blessed with an amazing house to stay in (with this rad view!) and got to experience a new island in Hawaii. Oahu is so beautiful, and I was constantly in awe of the landscapes. I'm just reminded again and again how amazing our Creator is! So thankful this weekend, experiencing new places, and getting quality time with my good friends!!

The reason we are here is to risk everything for those oppressed people over there outside the gate. You are where you are to help others where they are. This isn't a Christian's sideline hobby; compassion is our complete vocation. We do not just care about people; caring is our calling. That's it. || Ann Voskamp

I've met mothers all over the world, and the same is true everywhere - they are heroes. Not only are they literally life giving, but they are also life giving in the way they comfort, heal, care, and always persevere through circumstances for their kids and those around them. Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing heroes and mommas out there! (And especially to my favorite heroes @nbeard214 & @rachelsimpson09)

Having a blast in the Middle East! It's so beautiful, and I'm constantly blown away by the hospitality and friendliness of the people.

Feeling super grateful today that I get to live out my dream of using photography and design to tell stories from around the world. I got to meet this girl in Nigeria a few months ago and hear her story and take her photo. Now I'm on my way to the Middle East to do another project. I'm so excited to see a new country, meet new people, gain more understanding of God's character through another culture, get God's heart for the country and people, and to capture it through photography. I would love if you would pray for me and @susichilders as we embark on this wild adventure the next few weeks!

Sometimes life is crazy and busy and wild and spontaneous. Last week I bought a ticket to go do a project, and I leave tomorrow night. Before I leave I have to finish a huge design project. So here's to late nights, early mornings, hard work, and lots of grace. ✌🏼

By believing against all odds and loving against all odds, that is how we are to let Jesus show in the world and to transform the world. --Frederick Buechner

"Whatever you're caught in, I make you free. Whatever you're accused of, I hand you pardon. Whatever you're judged of, I give you release. Whatever binds you, I have broken. All sin and shame and guilt and lack I have made into beauty and abundance."

There's joy in serving and loving others well. The orphans at the base had decided that everyday they would bring water from the well to the base director's house. Everyday I would see about 5-6 kids walking to the well with buckets, filling them up, and bringing them to the house. No one asked them to do this - they just wanted to love and serve. I'm learning more and more how much more you get filled up when you pour out.

There are very few men who realize what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves into His hands and let themselves be formed by His Grace. --Saint Ignatius
