I am a friend to all people and create connection throughout the world. The main areas I focus on is through humanitarian efforts, experiencing different cultures first hand & teaching education and self-reliance among underdeveloped countries.
Matthew 10:39 "He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it."
When I first ventured into service, I believed I had something greater to offer the people I served. I quickly discovered that they have so much more to offer me. The people in these simple circumstances have something those of us in the wealthier lifestyles have lost. Only walking side by side with humble circumstances can you find what we all seem to be searching for. Even though they are physically hungry and dirty and hurting, their hearts are gentle, peaceful and loving. You will find no entitlement, no guile. And this is where I began to discover the ME I have been searching for.
I hope in my travels I am able to find a way to bring this connection back to my family and friends and those who are also searching for self. I ask God for guidance in all of my adventures, "Lead me, Guide me, Walk beside me..." And time and time again, he places people in my path that only increase my love of self and of mankind and of heaven and angels and of my Savior.
Life's journey is a gift. Relationships, old and new are a gift. We are all in this together! And that's just the way I LOVE it!
I am a mother of 3 awesome, smart & generous kids and wife to a super, supportive (healthy, athletic, handsome, design freak) husband. I live in abundance, surrounded by family, my newfound biological family (i was adopted) and friends galore! I love people (duh), and good food, and spontaneous adventures, and being curious, and gardening, and teaching, and travel, and starting new projects and the Plan of Happiness!
I hope YOU are in my next great adventure!
