    Just before departing, my sister and I fill our incubator backpack with ice to contain leftovers and cold water. I could hear my brother fumbling through his pockets by the jingle of his coins, and my Dad starting the engine to speed up our pace. After several delays of my brother apparently...

We were on an Alaskan cruise, sailing through snow covered mountains, glaciers, and seeing a variety of...

    Dust flew through the air, people ran everywhere, and the traffic is a mess of unorganized chaos. When my youth group and I first stepped outside the airport in Guadalajara, Mexico to begin our mission work, I saw cars going every which way and I realized that a car ride in Guadalajara was going to...

    Everyday, an estimated 400,000 pick pocketing incidents occur around the world. In any given city, this means there are thousands of pickpockets, and my father was convinced that every single one had him squarely in their sights. In the months leading up to our trip to Morocco, he questioned...

          You know that homesick feeling you get when you're away from home for an extended period of time? You just feel like you're ready to get back into your own bed, eat your own food, be in your own home? Well, I never got that feeling when I went on my ministry trip to El Salvador.       In...

    In the final weeks before our senior year, my friends (Jon, Phil, Denton, CJ, and Jeffery) and I decided we needed to celebrate the close of summer with a bang. We ended up commemorating it with something more like an atomic explosion at Northern Michigan’s premiere paintball facility, Area 51 (www...
