She has a master’s degree in missions and intercultural studies from Wheaton College and has used it to work with people from over a dozen countries. Her first book “Dangerous Territory: My Misguided Quest to Save the World” was released in February 2017. Amy lives with her fellow adventurer husband and their two children on two acres of Indiana farmland.
I had this idea that I wanted to be one of Heaven’s heroes.
I couldn’t understand why God would answer all those prayers in the beginning and then suddenly God was silent and He was gone.
It’s not about striving it’s about being.
Put love where love is not.
We have no way of knowing what is a big thing for God or what is a small thing for God.
God has not actually asked us to do big things. God has asked to us to accept our identity as His beloved.
What looks small to us looks big to God.
Need to be faithful with what God has given to us.
