Christmastime in Paradise

Christmastime in Paradise

Well, we made it! From cold showers to spotty internet, the Adventure in Nicaragua has begun! Thanks to everyone who has been praying and supporting us in this journey! We have a really great group of medical personnel here, and I’m excited to see it in action starting tomorrow. Be praying that we are sent […]

God of Love

Ok. I promise that this blog is not only going to be about the CD. BUT, it’s wonderful, and I love bragging on my husband. Deal with it 🙂 Plus, for those of you that I only know in the blogging world, this is what’s going on! You would think that I would be sick […]

For All You Worship Lovers Out There

For All You Worship Lovers Out There

It’s here! The church is releasing its very first worship album…and you have no idea how excited I am that it is finished! I am so very proud of my husband for heading this up (and for the amazing songs he contributed)!!! The entire team has done a great job and given a lot of […]

So, You Love a Student Doctor…

You are the few. The chosen. Perhaps the disillusioned.  But without you, we couldn’t make it. Medicine is a tough road to travel and not just for the student. Sometimes (ok, often times…) it’s the family and friends that get the brunt of it. At the beginning of the school year, I posted 10 Practical […]

Half-Way Gone

Update Time!!! We’ve been getting more information about the trip to Nicaragua through DO Care International, and I’m excited about all of the progress we’ve been making!

An Adventure in Nicaragua

An Adventure in Nicaragua

At a very young age (like age 5), I decided that I wanted to travel and help people. I was going to be a veterinarian in Africa. As we can see, that is not exactly how life played out. We don’t even own a dog. When I was about 13, I worked in a vet’s […]

The Problem with Christian Universities

The Problem with Christian Universities

I knew how many rules I was subjecting myself to when I decided to attend ORU. Curfews, no drinking, and for a while, nothing less than slacks in class. I loved it. I was 18 and ready to conquer the world. Every chapel was a face-to-face meeting with God surrounded by hundreds of others pointed […]

10 Practical Tips for Your First Year of Medical School

Take EVERYONE’s advice with a grain of salt. – Your mom means well, your friends mean well, your mentors mean well, even I mean well. But even the people who have been there before you are—well—different people. They have different priorities, responsibilities, goals, and bents. So seek advice, but then craft a plan that is […]

Doing It Myself: Words of Love

Doing It Myself: Words of Love

Michael and I are having our 3rd summer marriage/wedding anniversary celebration. Apparently, people who have blazed the marriage trail before us were right. Year 3 can be a bit of a hill. They say year 7 comes with some “transitioning”, too. So, we have taken some great advice, and are (again) reading “The 5 Love […]
