I am here.

Some peoples "get-aways" would look like this:

A place serene and quiet, that makes you feel like you are away from civilization. No phone calls or emails to check... unless you want to, of course. And then you enter your hotel room; there are few without access.

My current get-away? Not like that. But still a "get-away" none the less.

I get to see people that I love. And I await the phone calls that give me my daily plans to see more of those people. I get to sit in a home, decorated by creative geniuses that welcomes kids of all ages with open arms. A place I so easily meet the Lord. A place for me to get my barrings. A place my heart still calls home.

This time around, it is a safe place. Today I feel safe enough to allow the Lord to find me, instead.

Thank you, Lord, that you meet us where we are.



On June 25th, 1988 I became a Big Sister for the first time. I finally had a baby brother, not just a doll to play with. (of which had been given in an attempt to "prepare" me for the upcoming addition)

Joseph Ross Moslander would add lessons in responsibility, love and adventure to my life in more ways then I ever knew to expect. And still to this day I look up to him because of who he has grown to become. He's never too loud, and always strong- mentally and physically and spiritually. He lives for the next adventure, the next mountain to climb, and stories to create and then tell. He is the epitome or a man truly wild at heart. He will always be my little brother. I will forever want to "look out for him" and often I have to remind myself that he's not my doll and I can't boss him around. (being bossy is a first-born requirement)

Ross, I love you with all my heart. You push me to look at things differently and challenge me in ways I cannot explain. Thank you for playing with me when we were kids.. I will never forget our garbage burning sessions. I want to be adventurous like you. Happy 22nd birthday, Brother.

“Adventure, with all its requisite danger and wildness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of a man.”

“Safe? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good.” –C.S. Lewis

“In the heart of every man is a desperate desire for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.”

The Things We Share

On June 23rd my dad and brother, along with a small group of people from our church, left for Peru on a mission trip. They were there until yesterday when they flew back to the states.

I cannot express with words how excited I am to hear every detail of the trip.. so excited because I now feel like someone in my family got a taste of what I love. What my heart truly beats for... The World.

Bring on the stories at family dinner tonight! I can't wait!!
