Between two worlds

Between two worlds

Originally written for our May 2016 Picture of the Month email update Living between two worlds is exactly what the month leading up to Home Assignment feels like.  There is so much to do to prepare for a summer in the US – buying plane tickets, hotel and rental car reservations, taking prayer card pictures, … Continue reading

Words are cheap. Do something.

I have been heartsick over the way the tragedy in Paris has so quickly been turned into an opportunity to spew hatred against the most vulnerable – those fleeing the same evil that blew themselves up in the heart of Europe.

Recently, my two first graders have been talking about how if someone doesn’t have clothes or food and you give them some, it’s like you are feeding and clothing God.  Very Biblical.  Or if you lie to someone, it’s … Continue reading

Can you keep a secret?

… our girls sure can’t! Today was one of the house moms, Pascale’s, birthday.  While the girls were studying, she was out running some errands, so Mona pulled out a card for them to sign and they all got busy choosing gifts and wrapping them up.  The plan was to surprise her with a cake … Continue reading
