Our lives are not our own.

Follow our family's journey as we give up the "American Dream" to live and love in Uganda.

The countdown has begun...
Only 3 weeks till I leave my beloved Uganda. I think I have moved past grief to acceptance. I am defiantly sitting in the wonder of it. I got to live in Africa with my family. A dream come true. So now the dream I can surrender.

How amazing that God sees us and knows us.

When I got married at nineteen, I still believed in dreaming. At the age of twenty four with four kids, I started to let go of my dreams. When I found myself turning 30 with seven children, I gave up dreaming because I was stuck in a nightmare.

Some how.


God has awakened my heart to dream.

He is giving me the courage to see beyond myself.

Past me I find HIM. The reason for dreaming. The one in whom I hope. The giver of all good things.

My Savior.


  1. I wonder what adventures He has for you in the future, this Giver of Dreams! Like you, I am sad to see this one end - but I believe - truly - that what's in store is going to be awesome!
