So, as Stephanie said, there are a number of things that make me who I am. I am also a researcher. I am a wife, and a daughter, and a sister, and a friend. I believe that a great Hope exists. I feel as though I am a survivor most days, but sometimes this world..

Brian. Usually on July 21st, I write a letter to Andrew.  I’ve written letters of anger and forgiveness and everything in between.  Last year I reflected on how sometimes today looms, and that certainly happened this year.  I’ve been well aware of the fact that today is the 10 year mark of when I was..

I met you in the upper room Of a house where I slept with the angels From hell and from heaven Some for haunting, some for guarding Each to his own purpose over my trembling skin And I kept my secrets far from your condition And in the explosions they both were just powders In..

It seems important that I use this platform I’ve been given to be honest. And the truth is that I almost didn’t do this speech. The truth is that I have spent the last few weeks feeling like I have been asking too many questions and dealing with too many triggers in the past two..

A friend recently posted an article titled “Modesty, Beauty and Men.  What Should We Care?”. Here are some of my thoughts on the article: Unfortunately, I find this article really problematic in a lot of ways. I think it’s definitely a very conservative article that leaves out (what most people now accept as fact) that..

On May 22nd, 2011, I sat in a church in Zimbabwe and became a Christian. And then on May 22nd, 2013, I found out that I was accepted to the World Vision CIDA Internship posting in Zimbabwe.   I’ve been missing Zimbabwe a lot since I got home. Some days, I wouldn’t trade the luxuries..

Sometimes I feel like I am basically a walking contraction. I thrive off of teamwork and being around other people, but I am an introvert that experiences social anxiety regularly in large-group situations. I love being awake early and feel more accomplished when my day runs from 7am-10pm, but I do my “best thinking” in..

Name: Dr. Paul Thistle How I know/heard about them: Dr. Thistle hosted the team from Booth University College when some of us came to Zimbabwe in 2011. It is because of his willingness to host us at Howard Hospital that I went to the Salvation Army church on May 24th, 2011 and became a Christian…
