A defining moment in my life was when… I went to Peru when I was sixteen. As a sheltered, homeschooled girl with little travel experience, it was a huge big deal for me to leave my home and go with 10 other strangers to a strange country. I did it because missions had always been in my heart, since my mom read me the missionary stories as a girl. I dreamed of the adventure and excitement I’d experience on a mission field. Then I went on a mission’s trip to Peru when I was sixteen. I remember sitting by a river in the Peruvian jungle with so many stars shining in the sky it felt like daytime. God whispered to my heart: I just want you to be available. He didn’t need me on the mission field (although that’s where our family is heading next year). He needed me to be available to His calling – whether it meant washing dishes in WV or sweeping floors in Honduras.
Something I recently discovered is how much I really need to let go. And also. That there are still things I need to hang on to. Through @dukeslee ‘s newest book, #itsallundercontrol – we can find the wisdom and courage to know which is which in our lives. I love love love this book. Go order a copy now.
