    Living in the United States of America forces us to take everything for granted. Resembling most American teens, my perspective of school was just another requirement forced upon me by society. During my sophomore summer I had to travel to my native country, Haiti, with my parents. I would have...

  • We arrived to Oaxaca!

    Six hours in a musty, smelly airplane and finally we had arrived. I descended the steep stairs of the AeroMexico plane into the sticky Oaxaca air, and took a deep, solidifying breath in. I made it, and there was no turning back. For twenty-one days I did not have to worry about take-offs, landings...

    Thank goodness I kept a journal. You never really know how much you’re going to forget something until you pull a year-old, leather-bound, sea-salt scented book out from the bottom shelf of a bookcase in your bedroom and realize that you hadn’t thought about it for almost a year. Trust me, that’s...

    After moving to Colorado from California the summer before my freshman year of high school, I thought I had seen it all. At that age, a move to another state can feel like you’re moving to another country. My over-reacting, dramatic teenager abilities kicked in on the one-thousand mile life change...

    Crying girls, yelling boys, pacing leaders -- these aren't phrases that usually come to mind when people think about their favorite vacation; but most people don't use words such as hypothermia, Swiss nuns, or drowning to describe it either. It began one year ago when I joined a leadership...

    This summer I travel through Europe with a group called Sound of America. They take the best singers and musicians in the country and go on a tour through Europe. Our tour happened to occur during my birthday, which I celebrated in Stresa, Italy. My bus stayed at Hotel La Palma, located right on...

    Dayton to Chicago, Chicago and back. Dayton to Chicago, Chicago to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to Bombay.  In a span of 54 hours, I travelled around over half the world on several United Airlines aicrafts.  Going to India is always an amazing journey through spirituality, history, and fun.  This trip,...

    The whole world looks to California as the land of sunshine, surfing and movie stars. I will admit that, as a first time visitor to the "Golden State" and only 15, these were my expectations, but I returned home with a very different experience.        As my youth group pulled out of our church...

    As the shore approached, I reflected on the reason of my being here in Mexico. A group of 11 from my home church of House on the Rock had gathered on the shared goal of spreading God's love on foreign soil. We had been received by two missionaries who had been settled there for quite some time...
