      No one ever thinks that your life can be turned upside down in only ten days, but it can. When I went to Brazil last summer on a mission trip it changed my entire outlook on life. The people I encountered made me realize how good I have it and that too much is taken for granted.  On July 22...

    I am going to inform about my wonderful time at Disneyworld during the summer of 2006. First, our family awakened at 5 o'clock am to catch our plane on Saturday morning. When we boarded the plane, my stomach was full of butterflies because of the excitement and the epic Disney adventure that was...

  • When you think of any national park, you probably think about a place with bright green foliage and craggy waterfalls scattered over a few acres of land. In Joshua Tree National Park however, that expectation could not be further from the truth. The whole space seems to rumble with a slow rhythm...

  • Chicago

    A place exists where it is considered normal for children to not have a father present. A place where mothers who cannot find work turn to prostitution just to bring home a few dollars.   A place where a mother will feed her addiction before her children. Where darkness lurks so abundantly that...

    When travelling to Illinois, most people wouldn’t even consider Lisle as a possible destination. Dwarfed by cities like Aurora, Naperville, and Chicago, why would anyone choose to visit the small town?             It is precisely for that reason that it should be considered. Lacking much of the...

    On February 21, 2008, I boarded a plane for Montego Bay, Jamaica, excited for what God had in story for me. Little did I know that I would leave part of my heart in Jamaica. During the eleven days that I served in Jamaica, I witnessed poverty and wealth, joy and heartbreak. I did not travel to...

  • 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...

    When you think of the Bahamas I bet you think of palm trees and beaches, a tropical paradise, but that’s not exactly the case. In January of 2009 my family and I boarded The Disney Wonder cruise ship expecting nothing but pure entertainment from what promised to be an exciting vacation. The cruise...
