I'm Back!

Hi friend! It feels so good to finally have a moment to breathe, sit down at the computer, and share my heart with you. First of all, if you are reading this, thank you. Thank you, for being so loyal to me in this corner of blogland even though posts are few and far between these days. I am still learning to navigate this new season, but sitting down and just sharing my heart with you all is therapy for my soul. I am reminded as I sit here how much I need this blog and the outlet it gives me. My prayer is that as my heart spills out with the words on this page that God would touch your heart as well.

So this post is just a bit of everything. I want to catch y’all up on life in Oz, introduce you to one of my friends, and give you a little commercial of what is to come in a new series I want to try out on the blog.

I am going to stay true to my random character and actually go in reverse order of what I just told you.  First, the commercial…One of the greatest things God is revealing to me here are these beautiful truths about identity. I want to take you all on that journey of identity with me and just unpack what He is showing me. My prayer is that my journey will somehow inspire, touch, or at least cause you to think about your own.

Next up, I need you to meet my friend, and you may not know it yet, but you need to meet her to. This is my friend Linds.

Yea, did I mention she is gorgeous? She totally is. {:Inside and out:} I have known Lindsay since I was a teenager. We were in youth group together at our then church, went our separate ways and then about 10 years later we were reunited at a different church where I started attending and she was interning. {:Crazy God connections huh?:} After reuniting, she has been one of the strongest Christian friendships God has given me. Her wisdom and love for people is unmatched. AND lucky for you she started a blog. She started it as a place for her to just journal her thoughts, but her thoughts are gold and you will be better for reading them. Promise. You may have read my post about her and her adorable hubby here.

Oh, and yea, finally how about some pictures to keep you updated with life here over the past few months?
I serve on a team called Frontline at church. It is the 25-35 year old age group and I love it! We have been playing life-size Jenga the past few weeks and it gets pretty serious. Look how tall that is! This guy is probably about 5'9'' if that gives you any indication.

I am not sure I have ever been to a more beautiful place than Australia. A few weeks ago I went to an outlook point over Sydney and as we were there, there were fireworks. What an awesome surprise. 

This girl is one of the first people I met here and she is pretty much the The end.

This is church! Yup, whoever said Christianity is dead is going to the wrong church. It is alive, well, and spreading.

A huge portion of my time here at college is spent serving. But, when you have the right attitude and serve with awesome people it makes even the most mundane of tasks fun {:like plating food at 6am for a breakfast of 500+ people:}!

We have chapel each day with all the students of the college. If the word "chapel" makes you think stuffy, boring church service then this chapel service would totally shatter that definition for you. LOVE chapel and what God does through it.

And these are the people I have class with every day. Legends.

I hope you are having the best day! *HUGS*
