A Solstice to Remember

Sebree was our second camping trip, along with being the most intense and second favorite trip taken with our Solow camping crew. After about an hour and a half on the boat, the seven of us were dropped off at Sebree Island. It is called this because at high tide, the flats are flooded, making…

When the backpacking addiction starts…

So far while here in Alaska, I have done almost everything I wanted to do on my first draft bucket list. I got to go on the day tour boast (twice) to see the glaciers, I’ve seen wolves, bears, goats, humpback whales, sea lions, and puffins, and I’ve done a couple hikes. But one of…

First Days in the Middle of Nowhere

Not even a week has gone by, however it seems like multiple weeks have passed. For those of you who don’t know, I am a hostess at the lodge restaurant and I have so far worked three days so far. Business has been slow since the season just started an I’ve only been working only…

You Thought …

With all plane tickets purchased, I am on the road to prepare for my next ministry journey serving as a hostess in the beautiful Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska … that’s right ALASKA! Although it has always been on my bucket list to go, I was not always thrilled about this opportunity. After studying…

Red, White, and Blue

Being outside of the U.S. you hear a lot about the U.S. One of the things that has stuck out the most is the Las Vegas shooting. On Monday night we flipped to the news to hear live updates of what was happening, hours after the shooting occurred, with a starting toll of 20 dead…

Oh How Time Flies

I can’t believe it’s already been 7 weeks since I’ve first arrived in this beautiful country. I have been able to experience many things and meet many people. One of the coolest things I’ve found about Australia is the diversity of culture. For example, the other night, out of a group of 11 people, 8…

Don’t Worry

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” – Colossians 3:1 This was a verse I had read about a week ago and it has really stuck with me. While being in Australia I have wanted to spend my…

No Tuesday

Two weeks ago today I had no Tuesday. Over the past two weeks I’ve been living as an Australian with an AMAZING Australian family going to an Australian college … and all of it is amazing. I’ve also had a week of classes which all went so well. For the most part I walk to…

Four Day Lesson

So far, I have been here in Australia for 4 days and I can see how mu God is working in this trip. Not only were my travels safe, but those who I’ve encountered have been great, strangers and soon to be great friends. I can see that God has had his hand over me…

Half Way Around The World

After a 14-hour flight and a 15-hour time difference, my body has never felt so confused. The flight itself was fine. The flight crew was amazing and so kind. I think I slept for a majority of the flight, but it was hard to tell how long you would be asleep for. Ever once in…
