I Sat Next to A Man Who Purchases Sex. This is What I Learned.

“Do you know where to go next?” I was staring at an arrival board in Tokyo when she approached me. Fresh off a twelve hour flight with greasy hair and fuzzy teeth I stared at the transfer board. It looked like  the next flight to Manila was departing from terminal two. And I knew before […]

When Hope is Dead.

Have you ever desired something in life? I am not talking about cookie dough cravings — I am talking about that deep guttural longing and hope, that thing you pray about before you go to bed and when you wake up. I’m talking about that thing you know God has promised you, that thing you […]

An Open Letter to Mr. Trump

Dear Mr. Trump, Yesterday a man, Brandon Stanton, whom I admire posted a letter to you. He reminded me that taking a stand against you and your ideologies of racism, sexism, and violence is not a political one, but a moral one. In so doing, he reminded me of the power of my own voice. It’s […]

Can We Please Stop Defining Ourselves By Our Sexuality?

It came out hurting pretty badly and looking like this. Of course, was initial reaction was like “cool” this will make a good story. And then, […]

Why the New Star Wars Movie Might Be a Little More Real Than We Think.

Last Friday, the CEO of Adventures in Missions, Seth Barnes, took out the entire office to see the new Star Wars movie. I’ll admit, I haven’t seen any of the other ones (gasp) so going into it I didn’t know much besides the name of a few major characters and that maybe the force (whatever that […]

The Truth About the Sex Trade From Someone Who Has Seen It (podcast)

  Hey friends, I know it has been forever since I have posted. And for that I am truly sorry. You see, I have been galavanting around the world, traveling to New Zealand, Texas, California, Hawaii, and New York and I haven’t had much time to post. I have been busy living, so I have […]

Disillusionment: Maybe I Can’t Change the World

Have you ever been really excited about something only to find out a bit further down the road that maybe it wasn’t what you hoped? I’ve recently gone through a bit of disillusionment with a friend very dear with to my heart, with my friend who had left the sex trade. It’s not so much […]

How A Million Moments Make A Life

Lately I have been finding myself waiting for that big moment. You know when you are so overwhelmed by God’s presence that something bubbles out of you, whether it be tears or laughter. I faithfully do my quiet time every morning, begging God to overwhelm me with his love. And every time I feel his […]
