One of Those Beautifully Overwhelming Moments

Sometimes I feel like an old woman. Especially when I try to get up after sitting in one position for too long. (My joints aren’t what they used to be.. sad but true.) I also felt like an old woman on Christmas Eve when I was watching my little siblings (ages 5-10) sing Christmas carols […]

Uncontainable Joy: Learning to Let Him Take Care of Me

I have been feeling an outrageous amount of joy this week. It’s been a little overwhelming.

Everything has changed since then. The changes are so overwhelming that I lose my bearings at times. Who […]

Imminent Departure

It has been weird saying goodbye to everyone these past few days. It’s hard for my brain to comprehend how long 10 months really is. Sometimes I feel sad thinking about all the things I will miss when I’m in Korea. And then I think about how much I will miss Korea when I come […]
