Children of the Philippines

The journey is never long when you take it with a friend!


Over the past 37 years I have taken many a journey with my husband and best friend.


After years of traveling together and patiently watching Joel take all the pictures, I finally asked for my own camera.


I remember the request well. We were walking through the crowded streets of Chengdu, China and my eyes longed to capture everything I was seeing.

It was then, I finally decided, that no one should ever have to share a camera!


That Christmas under the tree was a beautiful, red Canon camera. It was that Christmas and the many years beyond, when the world began to change for me; as now I began to see it, behind a simple camera lens.


Now I see everything behind the lens of my i-phone, and I still find that I capture the delight of God’s unique creation through every single click!


May you catch a tiny glimpse of the Master Designer’s incredible sense of beauty and design as you walk through this photo journal.

I don’t claim to be a photographer; but I do love the sound of a good “click”!
