I am a mom of 2 kids and wife to an amazing red head. I love Jesus with all my heart and strive to make my life a reflection of Him. I'm a photographer, a busy body who can't sit still, and a girl who's traveled to 21 different countries but wants to see so much more. I co-founded Ten Thousand Homes whose goal is provide HOPE and HOME to Africa's orphans and vulnerable children. I'm also the writer behind my personal blog, I Believe In Love where I share my travel adventures, my photography, and creativity.

Reporting LIVE From India

Hello Mamas!  I’ve been in India the past several days with about a week left before I return home.  This is my second time in this crazy country, but I have to admit that the impact has been much stronger on me this time.  Can you imagine a 16 year old girl being sold into prostitution working off a debt that she will very likely never be able to repay?  Can you imagine a 5 year old living on the streets, begging to survive, living in a home that barely keeps out the rain much less keeping them safe from outsiders?

That’s the reality for so many people here, and I can hardly fathom it.  Please pray for these kids who are so vulnerable.  Pray that the vicious cycle would stop and they would find hope.

You can read more about my time in India on my personal blog, I Believe In Love.  I am here photographing for an organization called Hope’s Gate.  You can find out more about Hope’s Gate on their blog.

    The pic you have is beautiful; the message you send it clear and I agree, something must be done. Thanks for sharing-
