Heat exhaustion

It was a very hot day today and more than once I thought I would pass out. In this kind of heat it's hard to concentrate and remain patient. Funny that God is continuing to test my patience with staying financially afloat for the kids. Several times he has the kids ask me ab

Perseverance worked yesterday

Much better day with the kids. Hot and muggy but no tears and mean words. The kids were super lovey today. Happy feet gave me the longest hug and told me I was a good person (yes in those exact words). I brought my bracelet maker today and the kids taught me how to make

Choking back tears of being hated

Today I was at the boys and girls club of America and it was the first time I actually almost lost it and broke down in tears. It was starting off good, I had the handful of kids working on a craft about ‘Decisions’ and teaching them how to make the right choices in life

Answering the call again

After much back and forth on prayer with God and perhaps some stubbornness. I have taken the next leap of faith in what he is asking me to do. First though yesterday I heard a bible story about Gideon and him asking God to give him a sign..something about making the morning

Traveling Pink Ukulele spotted by the kids

First day bringing the traveling Pink Uke to the Lighthouse...again it seems the kids love it. How can something so small get so much attention... I suppose similar to how 'Little Genesis' gets so much looks. It's true that great things come in little packages. The l

How to keep going…

The Kids Another month almost done and once again I wonder how long I am supposed to be on this island and doing what I am doing. It is really hard seeing how it will work when I am paying my bills with faith. I can’t let myself be led by money…I did that before in old j
