World Breastfeeding Week Spotlight | Extended Breastfeeding Benefits & Tulsa Lifestyle Session

Confession: I used to be fairly ignorant about breastfeeding. Don't get me wrong... I was breastfed as a child, and felt like I understood the benefits enough to plan to breastfeed my own children. BUT - I also felt like there should be a hard cut-off as to when babies should STOP breastfeeding.

A New Adventure: The Journey to Birth OK

Last November, I was sitting in my living room brainstorming marketing ideas with a fellow momtrepreneur friend of mine, when out of my mouth rolled two words: birth magazine. I almost giggled when I said it, because during my teenage years one of my greatest aspirations was to become editor in chief of Seventeen Magazine. But almost as soon as the idea had flown from my lips, I shut it down. That sounded like a lot of work, especially just for the purpose of promoting my already-growing birth photography business; and I wasn't sure I was up for it….

Home, but Homesick + a Lesson in Hospitality

It has been about a week and a half since we landed stateside; and I'm sitting here at my home desk sipping on a cup of Kenyan chai, somehow feeling a little "homesick."

A tough week, but God reigns

The title above transports me back in time, to the note I shared on Facebook almost 6 years ago when we were losing our first child. And after the trials of the past week... it feels appropriate once again.

And, if you caught my Facebook posts in the last couple of days, you’d know that dream came true! (And this birth photographer was overwhelmed with joy!) But...

When in Kenya... (do as the Kenyans do.)

This past week has been a week of firsts. First time to Amsterdam (during a long layover pancake jaunt into the city), first time in Africa, first Safari, first time speaking Swahili, first time driving for Rhys (our Safari driver let him try it out while sitting on his lap on the Savannah), first time lighting a gas stove with a match (I’ve been spoiled by electric starters), first time sleeping under a mosquito net, first time trying mandazi, chapati, Kenyan Chai, and Kenyan candy (enter nature’s version of chewy warheads)...

We're going to AFRICA! | Fishers on Mission

When we first found out that April 2018 would be our first "missions month" for Jake's residency program, I was giddy, even though I had NO IDEA where the Lord would call us to go. So, what a joy it was to get confirmation from the Lord through some trusted mentors earlier this month that we indeed should spend April living and serving alongside the Jones family in their home of Kapsowar, Kenya...
