Quiet Time: The Daily March of Heaven’s Warriors

Since I grew up as a missionary kid in a Christ-centered home, the idea of spending daily time with God was basically a no-brainer! My […]

Consumers Anonymous

Hi, my name is Naomi, and I’m a consumer. I’ll never forget the culture shock of moving from a third world country to America. Growing up as a missionary kid had kept me relatively sheltered from getting whatever I want whenever I wanted it. If I needed new clothes, the hunt to find even just […]

Month One of Eating Clean

I’ve never been a dieter. Although I’m surrounded by family and friends who have discovered gluten or dairy allergies, I’ve never thought of MYSELF as susceptible to such things! It’s been eat-whatever-I-want since the land before time. But when I moved from Mongolia back to the States, I quickly became disillusioned with the options on […]

Mongolia: My Wild Homeland

I don’t have a lot of Mongolia pictures. Believe it or not, I didn’t really become a full-fledged photographer until I came to America! I got my first camera after graduating high school, which means that just a few months later I boarded a plane and forever left the land of my youth. You may […]

Hurricane Irma

“Behold, God is great, and we know him not; the number of his years is unsearchable. For he draws up the drops of water; they distill his mist in rain, which the skies pour down and drop on mankind abundantly. Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, the thunderings of his pavilion? Behold, he […]

The Seesaw and The Cornerstone

Just a few days ago, I sat in a local coffee shop ready to dive into another session of pre-marital counseling. My fiancé and I were mere weeks away from getting married, and we had been trying to spend a lot of time and energy on preparing for the marriage more than the wedding day! Our […]

The Kindest Words

I am a horrible compliment taker. There is just something awkward about getting praised by someone else! At least I personally have never been able to take it very well. 🙄 You’ll see me fidget in my chair, blush a bright shade of red and mumble, “aw thanks so much!”. 😂 Let’s just say, it […]
