Top 5 of 28

Howdy! So yesterday was my birthday again.  Today is Thanksgiving.  Now that all the festivities have drawn to a conclusion, it’s a good moment to share my favorite five moments of my 28th year of life.  I reviewed my Top 5 of 27, and kids, life gets better with age! So, you probably know all…

Turning Hell into Heaven

When I was little, I heard my dad give an illustration of heaven and hell in one of his sermons.  You’ve probably heard it before.  A different version perhaps, but same idea. He described hell as a place with a long dining table with people, chained to the table, sitting on each side and a…

Proverbs gives me tummy aches.

Hi.  It’s Dam, here. So.  I’ve been reading through Proverbs since September.  Very sloooowly, obviously.  Partly because it’s full of good stuff so I need to eat it little by little in order to digest it well.  The other part is because sometimes I suck at doing a daily devotional by myself.  Osiris helps me out…

Imaginary Music

“Living in Honduras for the first [several] years was the best decision we could have made for our marriage,” one wonderful lady said to me a few weeks before leaving my life behind to live with my future husband in the Dominican Republic. Today as we were walking into the grocery store, I noticed the…

2015, let’s go!

Hello & Happy New Year, everyone! 2014 was pretty cool.  But 2015 has to be better. Okay, goals?  Go to Texas with Osiris.  Second, take a picture with the B & G letters in Dallas with Osiris.  Third, start making babies with Osiris.  Hopefully, twins.  Fourth, be awesome with and for Osiris. Basically, that’s it. All…

Just Add Water

I used to be afraid to make things from scratch.  I realize now that it was because I was afraid of the imperfect outcome of my intentions.  I watched as my friends and family made amazing cakes and pies and tortillas from scratch and I’d say “You go, girl!”  As for me, if it didn’t…

Molding Us.

God has been so good in providing for us this month. Not just in providing for our physical needs, but for our spiritual and mental needs. It’s not easy to wait on something that you’ve worked so hard for but you don’t know when it will come. It can make us go crazy to think that…

The women on the TV shows…

Hi. Last month, I started reading Galatians. It had been a few months since I sat down by myself to study a book of the Bible. I had been reading my Spanish Bible, but I realized that as I read, my mind wandered and I end up not engaging the scripture at all. I shared…

Luther. Bonhoeffer. Gutenberg.

I must begin this post by celebrating that at least one of my favorite teams has made it to the World Cup FINAL: GERMANY!   Did you know I spent a couple of summers in Germany?  Did you know how much I love the German language and the German people?  Did you know that some…

Summer is Coming!

Howdy Y’all. Just a quick update for our busy readers.  It’s been a complicated and stressful last two weeks, dealing with a mess of paperwork, temperature changes, & sickness, but we are glad to say we made it to TODAY! Today was my last day of classes, which means that from here on out, Osiris…

Tia D & Ti-O.

Well, I don’t have much to say, but here are a few updates.  Also, I’m going a little more public about this immigration process for those that really are interested.  Before, I didn’t want to say anything cause the initial process was sooooo slow, but we’re finally moving forward. 1.  We finally heard from the…

Jesus whispers “Patience.”

Pardon me for missing the weekly blog post last Friday.  It’s been a series of wild events keeping us busy recently.  Spring Break has come and gone, and I’m seriously feeling it wasn’t enough.  But let me update you… Last week, Osiris’ sweet mom had a surgery.  Thankfully, everything went smoothly and she’s doing great…
