Why Isn’t Prayer Enough?

I am so grateful for my life rooted in Christian community, as a young child and into adulthood where I’m now raising my own children. I have found so much room to grow and find myself in God’s story of life and healing in the world. I’ve also realised there can be a quiet stigma in faith communities around mental health; it can hinder those who are suffering from finding the care that they need. Continue reading

God Is There and Everywhere

During my latest trip to Indonesia, I was privileged to form many wonderful relationships. The people of Indonesia are so friendly, hospitable, and generous. My way of thinking and seeing has shifted through each personal experience of getting to know individuals for who they truly are, and not the countries they come from. I realize that in the world we live in it is so easy to build up walls and have preconceived ideas about others.

He’s sweet I Know

A few years ago on one of my bus rides to and from work, I found myself listening to podcasts. Despite the sometimes maddening and mundane routine, that combination of earbuds and spare time made out to be quite the precious duo. Little did I know that one of those podcasts would cycle back around in my life multiple times and serve as a reminder of a faith fundamental.

Why are You in Missions?

I think I came into missions with quite romanticised ideas of adventure, travel, and crowds of people coming to know Jesus. I’m sure it was with this in mind that I walked into a travel agency at eighteen years old with $1,400 cash in an envelope for a ticket to Australia. Continue reading

Crossing the Border

The miraculous story of a family reuniting with their son at a music concert had me on the edge of my seat. The cup of tea in my hands grew cold and the snacks on the coffee table were forgotten as my ears craned to hear. Continue reading

Around the Table

This weekend I ate the best beef sandwich I have ever had: succulent meat surrounded by a tangy mustard sauce, with fresh vegetables mixed in, enclosed by a toasted baguette to add a crunchy finish. The best part of this meal? The family I got to spend it with. Continue reading

The Pursuit of People

For years, I have been passionate about seeing those involved in human trafficking be set free to find a place of safety and belonging. After ministering to a few girls that appeared to be prostitutes, it became increasingly evident that they were deceived into selling themselves. Continue reading

Serve. Impact. Experience.

Working with teenagers can be hard. Trying to keep their focus and getting to places on time are just a few of the struggles. However, it is so rewarding and exhilarating, and that’s why I love my job.

COMMITMENT COMES AT A CO$T

If you’re anything like me, you make deals with God. You know how it goes: “God, I’ll do this, but only if you’ll do this. I’ll serve here, but only if you give me this.”

When I first moved to Australia to serve with YWAM, these were my terms and conditions: “I’ll serve in missions as long as you provide. As soon as I’m in debt, I’m done.” Continue reading
