summer Insanity. 6 comments


Here’s what our ‘summer’ has looked like so far (also known as All The Reasons I Haven’t Blogged In Two Months):

Pack up our {crummy} apartment in Boise.
Drive to Denver from Boise. 13 hours in two days with two little kids and cars filled with…stuff.
Spend two weeks in Denver (which felt like 2 days).
Fly to Florida. Spend 5.5 weeks living in a dorm room (with two littles!) for our FOCUS training.
Fly back to Denver.

Tomorrow we fly back to Denver. From there we are looking at one or two more trips before we move to Washington state sometime in August.

It has been crazy. And beautiful. I’ve seen so much, learned so much, and the Father is truly pouring His graces into all the struggles. I can’t wait to share them with you! So…here’s a little preview of some posts that are rolling around in my head:

‘need’ vs. ‘want’

how we invest our time and the return we expect/hope for

toddlers and Latin

children as individuals, not just a group of kids

Maybe none of those are exciting to you. Maybe I’m just throwing out ideas so I don’t forget them. Either way, I’m excited to get back to blogging! BUT, I also want to know, what do YOU want to know? Anything about missionary life? Our training? How we move around all summer without going insane? What it is like to fundraise your salary with a family? Send me your questions and you may just see them answered on a blog πŸ™‚

Know of my prayers for you, dear readers! Can’t wait to catch up soon!

    Glad to read your posts again! I guess I’d love to see your perspective on letting go of what you’ve dreamed your married life would look like and the surrender you had to put into living in a place you didn’t want to live in. I recently got married (6mths ago) and I’ve had to move to Syria with my husband- with a house that wasn’t ready. Although we finally moved in a week ago, it’s been quite a challenge having to feel like nomads in the past months! I’d love to see your perspective on that and how you were able to cope! πŸ˜› All the best to you and your family!

      Ah, the nomad life! πŸ™‚ I can definitely write about surrendering my visions of married life to the reality of it all! Great idea!

      I’ve learned how to be settled in the Lord, even if the world around me isn’t settled. I try to keep some rhythm of prayer or certain habits so that there is something familiar and peaceful even in times of transition. I can certainly write more in another post πŸ™‚

    Would love to hear how you balance motherhood with supporting your husband’s odd hours in ministry (I know you both are missionaries, but you mentioned he is the primary one??). My hubs is in full time ministry and we have an almost 1 year old. It’s tough for me to sometimes to support his ministry when I feel like I need ministered to– like a break from baby, etc. πŸ˜‰ How do you keep the big picture in mind when little ones can make you so self-focused? πŸ™‚

      Oh that I had all the answers! πŸ™‚ I can certainly write a post about how we try to find a balance, even if our efforts are imperfect!
