Beale Street sights

A weekend visit to Memphis to see Jacob and Katie in their new home. So good to be with them. And we enjoyed a touristy day in downtown Memphis! Fun to see the colorful art and interesting sights! Especially unique was the Duck Parade at the Peabody Hotel– it’s for real! Loved our visit with the Martin family too!

July: Liberia


In July, I was privileged to return to Liberia as part of a team facilitating a Trauma Healing Training workshop. I posted more about this trip in our family ministry blog.

These are some of my personal Liberia memories.

Early morning rain. Beautiful coconut trees. The ocean. The chickens. The morning bird sounds. Home.


Unique ingredients, the hands of a friend, preparing some of my favorite foods. Delicious food, the creativity of my friend, so much talking and laughing… all wonderful.

The beach and the lagoon. So beautiful in daylight and evening light. Ever-changing and ever-constant.

So thankful for the gift of time in this precious country. So thankful for the many people that I got to share time with. So thankful.


autumn day-trip!


John and Marty came for a visit, and we enjoyed a day-trip to Asheville! Loved the waterfall on the way… and so many unique sights in Asheville!
