I just got back from vacation to my home town in Washington State. Ten beautiful days full of family, friends, fireworks and lots of food!. And completely guilt-free from any anxiety or worry from being off my nutrition and working out routine.
It is almost midnight here is Ethiopia
We just got back from a true Ethiopian dinner- with dancers and all!
It was a long, exhausting day so it was nice to sit down. We ate, we chatted, we made new friends. I still can't comprehend that I am in Ethiopia, Africa. But then we leave to go to another organization and I remember I am around children who have been abandoned.
It was Monday evening, I was sitting in row 20C on Alaska airlines, and we started to descend into Phoenix. I was returning from an amazing weekend back home in Washington State. Not only did I get to meet my new niece for the first time, I was able to finally attend the Washington State Spring Fair with my nephews and attend my nephew’s fourth birthday party. It was one of the most special weekends home since I moved away almost four years ago.

What if stepping out of your comfort zone meant you would find God's purpose for your life? Would you still step out knowing you would have to leave your family, your friends, the only life you knew? Four years ago God told me to leave the only life I knew, leave my comfortable job, and move away from family.
I looked at her toned arms, long legs, flat stomach, and flawless skin on the cover of Women’s Health Magazine, and without even thinking about it started shaming my own body. Self-consciously I thought to myself, “If this is how Women’s Health Magazine defines ‘healthy,’ then I must be far from it.”
