Category Archives: The Husband


I spent the last two days in a Pre-K training and was privileged to meet a new friend.  I quickly discovered that she was of the muslim faith and therefore was fasting during this Ramadan season.  After our conversation about fasting and the meaning of it, I pulled up my email and found an email […]

Traveling Companion

My husband is my favorite traveling companion. As we entered the traveling season, I was reminded of all the plane rides and destinations we have shared together (with and without the children). A little background knowledge to understand the text a bit better: After graduating from The George Washington University up in Washington DC, my […]


The past few years when I have put my husband on a plane to head to Africa for an extended period of time, I have prepared a set of “happies” for him to enjoy while we were separated. ***Happies is my mother’s term for little things that make someone you love feel HAPPY!  It can […]

This man…

Steals my heart over and over and over and over! I am deeply in love with him!!!! I loved having him at school for a wee bit this morning.  He shared about needs of orphans in Zambia.  The Kindergartners are in the midst of an Engaged Learning Unit about Needs and Wants and they have […]

Have I mentioned…

that I am happy to have this man home?!!?!?   I love that he is sitting next to me. I love that he is smiling while reading my writings. Of course he smiles at everything!        

Smiling is my favorite!

I often look at my beloved husband and am convinced that he wrote the line from one our favorite movies, “Elf.”   “Smiling is my Favorite!”   After 17 years of marriage, I must admit that my husband pretty much smiles 100% of the time.  He even smiles in his sleep!  No kidding!!!   I […]

The children have been most helpful and displayed a happy attitude while daddy was absent. Playing games together. Cuddling is accepted by all. I love that my […]

Just Us

Our sweet friend took family photos up on the hilltop this past Sunday. I asked for one shot of the two of us….when we were not looking, she snapped a few photos of just us. I love this man with all of my heart. I am blessed that my love for him grows even deeper […]

Happy Father’s Day

We are wrapping up Father’s Day here in Zambia. We are at our villa as a family of FIVE for a brief time. We snuck out of testimony time to come home for a wee bit of family time. Doesn’t happen much around here. We are surrounded by WONDERFUL people. We LOVE being with them […]

From the Hilltop…

Our ministry is sooooooooooooo blessed to own property.  We are even MORE blessed to own a piece of property with a view like this, overlooking the surrounding areas of Lusaka, Zambia. And I am even blessed MORE by having this man in my life!  I love you dear husband!  Even though we have had very […]
