So, Laura - my Pastor's wife - got this sweet trench that I totally adored and complimented at least three times. Needing a nice fall coat of my own I asked her how she would feel if I searched for my own trendy trench. She said she would love it and that she got hers at Target. I said that imitation is the highest form of flattery and that I would go to Target as soon as possible.
So, I did. First the one in Ankeny, then Ames the next day...and finally the Urbandale Target.
I found it...in my size. Oh, the joy!
Don't we look like Nancy Drew's? (I said Nancy DREW's not NANCY's. Ugh.)

There I was, living life to my perspective of the "fullest"; active in my local church, involved in a post-college singles ministry, working at a Christian college, praying for God's direction, when BAM!!!
I married a missionary.
My life has since changed significantly, dramatically, irrevocably, forever. Daily I trudge through the mud and muck of change, and daily I realize the commitment I made was completely and utterly HUGE. I am a missionary's wife. Going into this marriage was a joyful event and each event that has followed has been just as joyful and a little bit surprising. Follow me through the momentous occasions of missionary wife-hood. (Note: it's actually pretty normal...so far.)
Missionary wives, missionary wives-to-be, single women involved in or contemplating involvement in missions and anyone interested in the experience of a woman in missions is invited to join me.
I'm about to embark on a journey of choice - a choice to serve God in the demanding capacity of ministry and in the daunting yet delightful service of missions.
