The Value of Time and Connection

As my time for departure quickly approaches, I’m scrambling to make more memories with the kids. The reality of it all- that I will be gone for 5 MONTHS- is finally hitting and I’m wishing I had done more things with each of the kids individually when I had more time.  I’ve been skiing and doing little things here and there with all three, but … Continue reading The Value of Time and Connection

College and Mission

    Hah, original title, I know🙂 Let me first start by saying that prayer is something I’ve never truly gained a testimony of. I have struggled to implement it into my day to day life, and it still isn’t always my go to when I’m feeling overwhelmed.

Anyway… Trying to clean out my room before … Continue reading Thankful for Friendships and Vulnerability

As I’ve already mentioned in my first post, I wasn’t too keen on (British/Australian saying that just sounds so cool… pretty sure I’ve never said it out loud before though, haha) the idea of college and MORE SCHOOL was just depressing. There are subjects that I do excel in, and-more importantly- ENJOY, but I was letting my weaker areas (math and science) really drag me … Continue reading Random College/Life Rant

About Me

Hello all! A few things about me and in no particular order: •The oldest of 5 kids, 3 of which were adopted from Taiwan. •Love all things musical (as long as I’m alone singing/messing around on the piano and there are soundproof walls separating me from my audience). •Enjoy sports, especially soccer, volleyball, and skiing (cross country and downhill for life). •Was quite a perfectionist … Continue reading About Me
