You won’t believe this, but I am now officially a calendar pin up girl. Although, I have no idea which month I will be. The fact is, I will grace the 2011 Hope Chest Calendar with a shot of moi along with my thoughts on what gave me hope in the midst of my cancer journey.

Wow! Wow became our word to describe our experience in Africa and specifically Peace House itself. I first said, “Wow!” after hearing the headmistress of Peace House share her moving story. Unbelievable trial and tribulation brought her to serve as this orphanage and school’s special leader. Against all odds, she pursued her own education and chose to make a difference for the children of her country.
