Everything DancesTeaching

Dance Like No One Is Watching!

Health Coaching tip: Dancing literally throws stress off you. Everything dances, but not everyone does…. So then, will you?   Walking through the airport on one of my constant visits, I was in a bit of a rush. I was thinking about getting to the gate, getting through security, what will the team I’m going to train be like…. Not…

Conflict Resolution

People will always perceive conflict in different ways. Some avoid it at all costs while other seemingly do things to create it! Some see conflict as healthy; others never see anything good about it. This I do know: see it as you may, conflict does occur on mission trips. As a leader it’s not a matter of will we need to…

The Father’s Touch

If you’ve ever felt abandoned by a parent or guardian in your life –like you may have missed out on some things growing up as a child because of a parent(s) not being there--, you are not alone. There is hope. I grew up in a single-parent home. It was just me, my mom and two older brothers. Growing up…

A Lesson in Leadership

A couple of years ago, I was leading a team to Haiti for Convoy of Hope (a Missouri-based ministry we often partner with). This was a youth group from Michigan, with mostly teenagers, and a few adult chaperones. As is normal in Haiti, we were to work at an orphanage for the week, doing construction work in the hot sun.…

Self Talk

What About Self-Talk! What are some of the things that go through your mind when you are in a moment of being quiet and no one else is around, or even when you are around other people? Are they thoughts that uplift and encourage, or are they depressing and sad? Do these thoughts speak the language of love, comfort, health…

Italy – a land rich with history, color, flavors, music, and more! This destination may seem like a great place to take a vacation, but there is plenty to do to further the Kingdom of God in this beautiful country. The people are warm and inviting and the landscape beautiful, but centuries of religious oppression has left its mark. Our…

Andes Mountains PeruTales From the Field

Peru – Part I

The Andes Mountains jut out of the ground straight up into the sky, making one feel small and insignificant. They are so vast it is almost more than the eyes can behold. Our bus crawled slowly along the winding, steep roads, our mouths agape at the astounding beauty. And as I looked closer, I realized those were not rocks and…

Our Source for Peace – Part II

Our Source For Peace Hello everyone! Me again! Last time I shared about how peace is defined in the dictionary as "tranquil or quiet, or without oppressive thoughts or emotions." I also began laying the foundation of how God has peace for us and we have peace with God. There is no war between God and man. God is not…

Poverty – Part II

Poverty Is a Spiritual Issue Recently, I wrote a blog about visiting our brothers and sisters who reside in a city dump in the Philippines, while serving with Convoy of Hope. This is where I began to discover that poverty is a spiritual issue. The poverty of soul is so much more prevalent than the physical poverty that my five…
