Following the Call

Following the Call

I love opening up and dreaming with people. It’s such a good, refreshing thing to be reminded of the desires we have to change the world. It’s also refreshing to see people living out the dreams that the Lord has placed on their hearts. No matter how much resistance- no matter how “crazy” it might […]

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!

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.

A True Friend

Like I mentioned before in the entry about her shower, the best friend just got married. The wedding was beautiful. Hilarious. Wonderful. Successful. And my daughter was an absolute […]

The Door Behind You

The Door Behind You

We all go through transitions… New life being born and sudden deaths. Moving somewhere you never imagined setting foot or Making a home somewhere you only thought would be a pit stop. Starting school. Quitting a job. Rising to the top or falling in a pit. Getting married or cutting a relationship once thought to […]

Silent Killers: Why Do You Wear Purple?

What do Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, opera singer Luciano Pavarotti, actor Patrick Swayze, and iCEO Steve Jobs all have in common? Unfortunately, they are all joined by our first Silent Killer—pancreatic cancer. The Pancreas: What is it? The pancreas is a gland that has many functions for digestion and regulation of blood sugar.
