Janna in Swaziland, Africa


Wow. Sorry about that obnoxious “Hi” in the very beginning. Okay, now that THAT’S out of the way…..

What would make a beautiful 20 something young lady, living in San Diego, want to up and join the Peace Corp, leaving family, friends and comfort at home? Watch this video, as I interview my niece Janna, a few days before she “shipped out.” She left yesterday. Please pray for her and she embarks on her 2 year journey. (Sorry to those who found an earlier-taped, playful, but not serious video of this same subject on YouTube. I was showing her how the blog works, and we taped that one, and I left it up there, thinking no one would find it, but some did! 🙂 I thought that was pretty funny-considering how silly it was. Janna just brings the “silly” out in me.)  Follow her adventures at http://www.jannaswazilandadventures.wordpress.com

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!
