I cannot believe that Christmas is days away and we get the opportunity to celebrate the joy of a little baby that was born in a manger to save us all from sin, to be our strength, peace, and joy to the whole world. His name is Jesus! I wrapped a few presents last week and put them under the tree unlabelled, and it's been driving the kids up the wall. Not knowing whom they belong to is hard, but with that comes expectancy and anticipation. I think this is a lot like faith. Our … [Read more...] about God’s Been Talking To Us All This Time: Part Two
As we start to look back in the ways that God has been slowly guiding us it's all so clear now, but it felt really foggy a few years ago. Back through 2013-2014 we were at a cross roads with our businesses. Our life was good, work was very successful but it seemed like there was something more out there that we were missing, waiting for, but really unsure of what that was? We know that God has always been guiding us like an unveiling of fog patches along the way. We know God heard our cries for … [Read more...] about God’s Been Talking To Us This Whole Time: Part One
It has been really busy starting a ministry in the New Year, and to say that it's been easy would be a lie. What we do know is that we are leaning in each day, in prayer, silence, and all-knowing that our heavenly father will continue to guide us, and provide the way. This I know. This week was a leap of faith, as well a small leap of faith towards next year. This year the vision is greater, so great we both have moments of paralyzation. What keeps us going is the quote by St … [Read more...] about Ways You Can Partner With Us
Is it worth getting into ministry? We think so. After all this ministry we are starting has very little to do with us, and a lot to do with the vision God has placed on our hearts. We know this to be true because this dream, this vision, that God has given us is big and the two of us (Darryl and Jodi) tiny humans could never attempt to pursue it without his guidance, direction and endless supply. Our vision: We envision a community of men, women, & children empowered to give their … [Read more...] about Is It Worth It? We Think So.
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!
