On Thursday we dropped everything to drive 11 hours to visit my nephew in Michigan who had emergency brain surgery. Praise God he is ok but he has a road to recovery for sure. A few things this unplanned trip reminded me. 1⃣God is faithful. Even when life is hard He is so good. 2⃣ I forgot how much I loved this farmhouse which my grandparents owned when we were growing up which my brother bought five years ago and has made his own. So many memories. 3⃣ It feels crazy good to be around family including my parents who flew in. Watching the kids with their cousins melts my heart and being able to hug my big bro is the best AND meeting my new niece, Gwendolyn only 2 months of age has been precious. 4⃣ Apparently we need to buy chickens because Elsie has not put sweet Henrietta down since she met her. 🐓💛 #blessed #michigan #farmlife

Family Vaccination day! The kids let me go first and held my hands and talked me through it😂 Elsie had my sucker ready and told me to be brave. After their turn and so many tears they looked at Micah & I and said "now we can go to Africa to help the kids" #ugandabound #proudparentmoment We're coming for you friends! @solehope @ashercollie @elisabethmichal @ashleyredburn

Would love to meet some Nashville peeps and what better way than having a Party with a purpose! Cutting up old unworn denim together which will be made into shoes that will impact and change lives in Uganda! The denim we cut from this party will be going with us when we visit our friends at @solehope in Jinja, Uganda the following week. We will be able to document the journey of the denim cut here in Nashville, which will then be sewn by the Sole Hope shoe tailors in Uganda, then placed on the feet of the children during a jigger removal/foot washing clinic. If you are available Sunday evening Sept.14th to join us in a Shoe Cutting party please email me at natalie@solehope.com for more deets! Would love to have you join us🎉 #solehope

Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; (Hebrews 12:14, 15 ESV) Seriously needed this truth from the #shereadstruth devotional today. Also I not only made my first loaf of bread but my first Gluten Free loaf and I totally am making French Toast and then turkey avocado sandwiches with it 🙌

It's official... Our little family will be heading to Uganda in about SIX WEEKS to work with @solehope! God has been doing a mighty work in our family for the past few years // walls have been broken and our hearts softened. Stripping us of comforts we once clung to with a desire to live with less so we can do more for His kingdom. Moving across the country just 7 weeks ago was the start of us learning to really put our faith into action and having the desire to live knowing this is all temporal. We want to live with eternal perspectives and are honored to be part of the great work He is already doing with the hearts of the people of @solehope! 📷:@lorieloo
takethecannoli1 : @thebusybudgetingmama I'll be in Uganda for Sole hope 🙌😬
thebusybudgetingmama : That's amazing!!
vpmcelreath : @cooperstar whaat? How crazy! Must be something about Nashville!
nicolemoses : We just returned from Zambia after a month with a 22 month old and baby in utero ;) anyway kids are so flexible and my daughter adjusted so easily and loved all the people she met! praying God goes before you and makes everything as smooth as can be!
guene_kris : I'm moving to nashville in January!
takethecannoli1 : @guene_kris really!!! We have to connect!
guene_kris : @takethecannoli1 would be fantastic! :) I'm moving from Miami, FL 🌴
thesehappytimes : Oh awesome. So happy and excited when I see The Lord working in others hearts and loves like this! @takethecannoli1 it is all so temporary.
