3 Reasons We're NOT Starting A Non-Profit (or asking for your money)

The past few weeks have been a RUSH. We are scared out of our pants. We have waves of fear - and then joy - and then "We have way too much to do!" Overarching all of those feelings is overwhelming peace. Almost every day, Tim and I look at each other and say with […]

Our 3-year-old was talking to one of her friends on the phone this week: "Our plan is to sell our house, live in an RV, and help lots of people and all of the kids who don't have food." She said it so confidently, so excitedly. She said it with sparkling eyes, with adventure in […]
