One of our teams who will take the journey to Uganda with Kirabo Seeds this summer will be teaching Ephesians. They’ve had several meetings, and they are getting creative in how to present some of the themes from this book in the bible.

I’ve been searching through old photos of when I first met Phiona and Julie. These photos are precious to me. We never would have known then what God would do to connect our lives as he has now.

She likes to pretend she’s a mama, pushing the stroller, putting her baby to bed with a blanket, feeding us, cooking for us, and of course bossing us all around … Continue reading The new normal.
