ANNOUNCING: 109 World mission trip in Sweden! We are an all-women team running the non-profit 109 World and have been longing to do a mission trip focused on women's issues and female empowerment. We have decided to focus on a heavy, difficult and widespread issue this year: sexual violence and rape. Sexual violence happens all over the world no matter the country, financial status or level of education. Every single woman that has to suffer through this atrocity and its aftermath is one woman too many. Join me in Öland, Sweden August 17-20 for a mission...

  Here is an example of what life is like for people less fortunate than you and I. The people of Ecuador impacted by the major earthquake that took place this April are struggling for their lives. Most homes have completely disintegrated and families now live in make-shift houses created with tarp and pieces of metal. Many sleep in the dirt directly on the floor. Children are the ones who suffer the most - where do you turn to when you've lost everything? How do you start over when there is nothing left? Join 109...

We practice yoga on our yoga deck in the jungle twice each day, swim in waterfalls, make bonfires on the beach, relax in the natural jacuzzi(!), eat all-organic food from the farm, and explore hidden beaches. It really is as magical as it sounds.     My good friend...
