Hey! My name is Liz and I am so happy you have visited my blog.
I am a missionary in South Africa with my husband, David and 2 of my 3 kids. I was a pharmacist in the States before moving to South Africa. You ask why did you move? Well, in 2007 David and I came on a mission trip to South Africa and worked with an organization called J-Life Africa. Please visit my J-Life page to find out more about when we do. Both David and I had been looking for something other than work and home and work and home. Being more intentional about what we were doing with our lives. Not that you can’t be intentional where you are now, you can, but God had called us to work in Africa. Scary. Moving your children and your life to another continent. God was with us every step of the way. By July 2008, we were ready to move. More about ways you can help us is found on the “Help Us” page.
Since, moving to South Africa, I have worn many hats as one would say. Being the best wife and mother come first for me after my relationship with Christ. Up until Aug 2016, I “volunteered” at my kids school and in return they got full scholarships. This now has changed and again changing what my everyday looks like. My children are still at their school and I drive them 45 minutes each way everyday. Some days I work in Johannesburg, but we live in a little town just south of Joburg (as the locals say). I recently became a writer for a website called Daughters of the Deep (www.daughtersofthedeep.com) which launches Oct 2016.
I love crafts, sewing, hand lettering, bullet journaling, blogging, baking, and Diet Coke. I love telling people about our ministry and what is happening across Africa as well as just our everyday life here as a family. I also love Kruger National Park, Durban, South Africa, any place with a beach and the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys.
I would love to be friends and share life with you. It’s not always neat and tidy. Life is messy and I am honest about that and try and learn from times that are hard.
