There have been many times in my life overseas that I have felt discouraged, like I was a terrible missionary and nothing was going right. Or there are times when the culture I am living in becomes hard because it is so different from mine. Those who have lived overseas know exactly what I am talking about.
And sometimes I just wished I could speak or hear from someone who is feeling the way I do, going through the same situations I am, and here the simple words "It's Ok."
I was so blessed to come across Laura Parker's blog about a year ago. She has inspired me in so many ways. I have said so many times reading her blog "I know exactly how you feel". I have laughed at her posts and cried reading some of them because of how true they are. I am so thankful she writes so beautifully and I would encourage women living overseas (and really, even those of you that aren't) to start reading her blog. You will not be disappointed.
I was lucky to have been featured on her blog today. Check it out. And while your at it check out her other posts as well.
