Hey y’all! Sorry I haven’t been on here but my new goal is to post on here more often so y’all can be updated with my random and pretty much dysfunctional life. I plan to blog a little more with my pointless adventures and hopefully put some inspiring stories in… BUT for now, let me update you on my recent epiphany.

Sooo basically, these are the last few weeks of living at home and lately I have been trying to go through stuff of what I do not and do need for my new apartment in College Station (yippee!). Throughout this process I had to clean out my dresser and closet. It really was not as bad as I expected it to be; every piece of clothing had a story and I reminisced through it all. However, I did realized how spoiled I was. In the end, I had over 50 pounds of clothes, shoes, and old accessories I did not use. I begun to think about the mission trip I took to an orphanage in Peru last summer and how the kids barely had anything! Compared to what they’ve got, I have Carrie’s dream closet. Once again, I realized how lucky I was. I have numerous jackets for when cold fronts hit and more Nike shorts than necessary. Therefore, my giant bulk of old clothing is going to Goodwill and Salvation Army (like always).

Anyways, this is just a friendly reminder to remember how lucky you are and that if you do have excessive unused items of clothing- clean it out and give it to a good cause!! I hope y’all’s summer is fantastic and see ya in my next post!

XOXO, Heidi

Even More Super Secret Menus [click for more]
Starbucks recently leaked their “Secret Menu,” but the rabbit hole goes much deeper. We got a hold of their Secret Secret menu, plus the secret items of other fast food giants. Try these out, and let us know how it goes!…

Zambia, World Malaria Day 2012
The National Malaria Control Centre organized mobile clinics around townships to screen, test, and treat people.
The Peace Corps Stomp Out Malaria Coordinator Jane Coleman and a Linking Income and Food Environment Volunteer Laura Walls walked around with community health workers and their loud speakers, letting people know to come to the mobile clinic to get tested!
Jane and Laura spent the rest of the morning with the patients and staff screening, testing and treating mothers, children under five and even some of their fathers.
People were lined up around the clinic and many people went home with Coartem and will be happy and healthy for the month of May!

God always entices us through love.

Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change, is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change. If the mystics say that one way, they say it a thousand ways. But because most of our common religion has not been at the mystical level, we’ve been given an inferior message—that God loves you “when” you change (“moralism”). It puts it all back on you, which is the opposite of being “saved.” Moralism leads you back to “navel-gazing” and you can never succeed at that level. You are never holy enough, pure enough, refined enough, or loving enough. Whereas, when you fall into God’s mercy, when you fall into God’s great generosity, you find, seemingly from nowhere, this capacity to change. No one is more surprised than you are. You know it is a gift.
