I was organizing our bookcases the other day, (aka getting my OCD therapy in) and I stumbled upon a photography book of Darryls. Within the Frame by David duChemin, a photographer Darryl really admires and respects. Darryl has owned this book for quite sometime and I've paged through it many times. I know if you had the conversation with Darryl regarding it, he'd highly recommend it. The book is about finding and expressing your photographic vision as a photographer, and telling a story … [Read more...] about Within The Frame Of A Photo
We have great news! As of last week we have amazing news that our application was processed through the agency The Great Commission Foundation. We were informed that the processing time (the application process is quite extensive) would take 4-6 weeks, but thanks to God our application was accepted a few days after we applied. Thank you Jesus! What An Agency Means For Us I wrote here about why we are choosing to go with an agency, but here are a few more reasons. We have felt Gods nudge to … [Read more...] about We’ve Been Accepted!
We have amazing news! For the last two years, nine months of which was in Mexico, we have been volunteering with The Vineyard Church to help them establish and share their Child Sponsorship Program.

While we wait for our application to be processed, we are currently working on … [Read more...] about We’ve Found An Agency!
As Darryl and I and our two children prepare for our next trip to Mexico in January of 2017 to continue our work with the Vineyard Child Sponsorship program, we are continually asked why we do what we do? (actually to be totally clear, due to the marvel of technology this is a year round effort on our part, with only a portion of the year being on site in Mexico) Why would we make the decision to work only 50% of the time here in Canada to be able to volunteer with the Vineyard Church … [Read more...] about Why? Because God Has Asked Us To
Thanks for your overwhelming response of love, advice, and prayers as we journey along in these next few weeks. We feel very encouraged by your wisdom, and look forward to connecting with you more as we hear from God. One of the things I in particular have been feeling is that even while we feel paralyzed when it comes to the "How things will happen" we need to keep trucking. It's been quite difficult trying to manage all that we need to do, but need to take our long to do list and just keep … [Read more...] about A Few Thank You’s!
The summer has swiftly moved along far more we would all like, but we would like to take this time to share some of the things God has been stirring in our hearts, and the direction we feel he's asking us to go. Darryl and I have been on a journey of refining our businesses the last few years. In particular, Darryl and I have quite honestly been really hard and impatient with ourselves. It's taken us years to figure out that we while we are passionate about helping people through the creative … [Read more...] about If Only We Could Slow Down Time.
