Big Crazy Dreams

Have you ever had a day when in a matter of minutes, the course of your life completely changes? I'm sure it happens more than I think it does. Probably in ways that aren't so great and in others that are brimming with joy. 

This happened to us in April. One beautiful day over his spring break, Matt and I were having lunch down on Mass Ave here in Indy. Going to lunch for us is a rarity because of our work schedules, so it was a treat. 

Through the course of our conversation, I started talking about some writing projects that I would love to see take off. I said that I thought it would be great if we had a place where I could go and just write for a week or so.

Then we started dreaming big crazy dreams.

What else could we do with this place? What could it be? Who could we serve there? 

And by the time we finished lunch, we were selling our house, saving money, and building a retreat center. 

And that's what we've done. We sold our house. We're saving money. We don't know much else beyond that, but that's where we are. 

Check out this little video that gives you the update. 


We need your prayers. Pray for clarity and direction. Pray for God to surround us with people who are doing what we'd like to do. Pray for us to learn from them and to build relationships with them that will help build the kind of ministry God wants. Pray for those who are in need of rest and retreat and will be renewed by this future ministry. Pray for us to wait on God and to move when He says move. 

Thank you for the ways you are already partnering with and supporting us. Your encouragement and prayers are a blessing to us.
