Trials to Triumphs: As The Journey Spreads!

Girls Journey in Mexico! The picture you're looking at has very special significance. It is the first official Journey to the Heart in Mexico!  28 young ladies went through the full ten day Journey in their own country. To say we were excited would be a very large understatement!  The testimonies we heard from some of these young ladies  enough to bring tears as we realized once again how much God loves us, and how much He wants us to know Him, and experience the joy, and freedom that He desires for us!

But enough of that intro, here's a first hand report!

Stories to Enjoy: Empty Homage

Mountains in Mexico"A while back I went to Chiapas.... I have so many pictures from our time there. I have pictures from every place I went to in Mexico but one. It was a place that by taking just one picture it would mean confiscation of your camera...

"Stepping through the gates of the courtyard I smelled smoke. Peering into the massive doors of the church, I couldn’t see much. It was dark, really dark. As I stepped in my eyes adjusted. What I saw I will never forget. It is ingrained in my mind forever......"

Updates and Exciting Happenings!

Guess what those dates represent....

The second full length Mother's Journey to the Heart!

With less than three weeks left to register, we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this special chance for ladies to
 have time away from distractions, pressures, daily responsibilities, and constant busyness. The goal is for them to be reminded of the love and grace of God, and His longing to fulfill their every need, and give them life to the full!

Mothers are usually the last ones to take time away for themselves, or to spend money on themselves, so it's up to us children and the fathers to encourage our moms to go.
If finances are a problem, then contact us at, there may be some partial scholarships available.

We hope you'll spread the word about this chance for mother's, and then join us in praying that God will use this to bless and encourage all those who are willing to take the time to seek Him!
