Lemon Chicken and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m a really slow eater, and I’ve always been that way. Especially when I don’t like whatever food I’m eating. From about age 5 to 10, I would often be the last person at the table; the rest of my family would rinse their dishes and then go do something else. Sometimes my mom would […]

Trusting God in the Storm

Hey, guys! I haven’t posted anything in while, so I thought that I might as well blog now. This school year has been pretty good so far. I’ve had a lot more homework than I expected, but I’ve been able to get it all done. Near the end of the summer, I started having some […]

Our Life in Uganda: Part 1

Hi all!! When we were in Uganda, I made a few photo videos/slideshows. I have been meaning to post them for about a year now, but I never got around to it. I thought, now is as good a time as ever. So, here is the first installment. Enjoy!! http://animoto.com/play/ALR5DFUOokbtnB5HaLXKMQ Above is the link to […]

“We’re doing this because we love you.”

“We’re doing this because we love you. This is the best thing for you. You’ll thank us later.”   I never REALLY understood what that meant. I mean, I knew it wasn’t just my parents’ way of justifying their decisions. But, I didn’t understand what they were really trying to say to me. I assumed […]

Reflecting on the year

Hi, readers! I’m 13! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging ever since I was eleven. So much has happened to me since then. I’ve lived in a third world country for 6 months, survived 6th grade, (phew!!) and now, I am almost done with 7th grade. It is really hard for me to wrap my […]

A Collection of Thoughts

I was sitting in my dining room re-reading the posts I have written in the past and reflecting on them. Reading them made me wonder, “What happened to that girl?” What happened to the girl who was never afraid to be who she was supposed to be and follow her call from God? What happened […]

How He Loves

This past week, Monday through Thursday, I went with my school to Arizona. By the way, this is my first post since we returned to the US about two months ago. Nothing in my life has really been “blog worthy” until now. This wasn’t just a camp where we learned about nature and went hiking. […]

So what now?

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s thinking this. I know some of Throwing Starfish’s readers are wondering, “So what now?” Believe it or not, but some people checked our blog every day. The truth is I don’t know what’s next. Ever since I got back, I’ve been wondering the same thing. I […]

Goodbye, Uganda

I can’t believe I already have to say goodbye. It seems like just yesterday I was boarding a plane to come here. The good thing is that I feel like I’ve accomplished what I personally came here to do: #1-Make a difference in someone’s life. #2-Strengthen my relationship with God. #3-See the beautiful things in […]
