This time of year I like to pause and reflect on everything God has done during the year, how my kids have grown and matured as they walked through another year of life, and the way my life and character changed for the better. So take a moment with me to celebrate this past year!
January 10, 2009 ~ DTS begins! I started a new, wonderful, crazy adventure as I led my first DTS ever! And we had our first African students!
February 25, 2009 ~ A home was built in Mbonisweni for some kids! Thank you, YWAM Orlando!

Yes, it’s been a busy year and a good year full of lots of great things. I was stretched in more ways than I could have imagined. Creativity abounded in our home as I become a huge advocate for others finding their creative outlet. My kids grew a little big bigger and matured a little more. As I look ahead to 2010, I’m very excited about this first season of rest. What are you looking forward to as you enter 2010?
