etst Big tears and happy heart picking up seven years and three kids worth of baby clothes all sewed up in this memory quilt. Recognizing favorites and pointing them out to the kids--Halloween costumes, birthday dresses, first pair of overalls. @vintagegiggles tied up our past so beautifully. No more baby clothes hoarding! 1d

etst Gradually lost members of our traveling team at each layover until finally, alone for three hours at a D.C. airport bar, I open my book to decompress and read. The very first page I open to reads: "One human figure on the slope of a mountain can make the whole mountain disappear...One person fighting for the truth can disqualify for me the platitudes of centuries. And one human being who meets with injustice can render invalid the entire system which has dispensed it...We must believe in the attainability of good. We must believe, without fear, in people." (Leonard Bernstein's "The Mountain Disappears" from This I Believe) And that, my friends, pretty much sums up #styleforjustice
Cannot wait to kiss the faces off my babies.

etst This woman is just as much a founder of @ijmhq as her husband, Gary, who started IJM 17 years ago. 18 international field offices and 20,000 rescued lives later, here she is, a believer in justice, a lover of art, a proud mama who whipped out phone pictures of her kids every time she talked about them, a hilarious storyteller and a powerful voice for the voiceless. Jan Haugen is an incredible example of how women can be A GREAT MANY THINGS. @queen_janjan 4d

etst Last sunset in Africa and goodbyes with new friends--some serious hugs going on. I may not speak their language but felt every word tonight. Their stories stay in my heart. #styleforjustice 5d
  •   lindanargi1 Justin studied abroad for his undergrad in Uganda and did his internship for his masters in Rwanda. He has the African proverb "Slowly by slowly" tattooed on his chest. He has a heart for Africa and the people there. I hope to go myself one day. Thanks for sharing your journey. It has been awesome to follow along. 5d
  •   maddogmatt Your caption here reminds me of the time I spent in El Salvador in some of the most proverty stricken communities. I knew very little Spanish and the following quote was true to our time spent there with the people of San Vincente "Preach the Gospel at all times (to me that means show love and compassion) and when necessary use words" St. Francis of Assisi 5d
  •   ashleycbg I looooove this picture 5d

etst You didn't think I'd leave Rwanda without a feet pic in my feed now, did you? Bowling party with teenage IJM clients tonight. After the bowling pins were knocked down, they were put back by hand. And it didn't take any longer than our automatic ones. #styleforjustice 5d
  •   caseyleighwiegand 5d
  •   farmgirlpaints You know I love me a feet picture:) 5d
  •   marjie818 Looks like bowling is a universal language 5d

  •   nobigdillkaty Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!! 5d
  •   seeklovewalk So hard to choose... 5d
  •   kennethudayraj Where's this market? 5d
  •   twolittlefishinc Oh HOW FUN!!!!!! 5d
  •   hstr0m So beautiful! I bought some fabric when I was in Africa 5 years ago. I still look at it (I've made pillows, keychain, baby blanket, bows, etc out of it) and remember the great adventure I had and all of the people I met there. 5d
  •   kwishie My parents are missionaries in DRC and I grew up in Africa so when mom wants to send me something, I always ask for fabric. When it arrives there's always a few minutes spent smelling it to remind me of my first home. And you can't really find African fabric here in the states. 5d
  •   ottindottin OMG I would pay good$$$$ for that fabric!!! I'm jealous! 5d

etst Have loved getting to know @meretoering the #styleforjustice contest winner. The biggest heart for the vulnerable and only 23 years old. I've never met her parents, but I want to hug them for who they helped create. Watching this girl love and connect on this trip has been such a gift. 1w
