New Podcast with Jessica Eileen Drogosz -chatting about Sa Voix in Haiti


I’m excited to share my conversation with Jessica Eileen Drogosz! She is an artist and photographer and teacher and advocate for women in Haiti.  She has founded Sa Voix in Haiti which exists to help young women find their voice through the arts. You can find more information at savoix.com. It’s amazing what Sa Voix is doing to empower young women!

Jessie is also an amazing photographer and you can find her work at jessicaeileenphoto.com.

I loved hearing about how God has called her into this moment and how she is saying, “YES!” and learning to trust.  Jessie is a beautiful soul who I know will inspire and encourage you! Enjoy!

The Scripture she reads at the end is Proverbs 8: Wisdom’s Call.  

25 Things

25 things

I’m excited to be linking up posts with other bloggers this week!

We are all writing on the topic:  “25 Things You Might Not Know About Me”

When I first thought about this, two things came to mind.  First, there isn’t much you don’t know about me since I’ve been blogging for over 3 years and I’m pretty much an open book.  Second, does anyone really care?

But then I thought about reading other people’s 25 Things and I got excited.  I love learning new things about people.  It doesn’t all have to be deep.   Sometimes the “me too” moments come in the silly stuff.  Sometimes we connect to other people’s memories or favorite song or embarrassing moments.

You already know the important stuff.  You know I love Jesus.  You know I love Yoga and especially Holy Yoga!  You know I love my family and being a mom and being a wife.  So I tried to think of 25 things I haven’t mentioned before in my blog posts.

Here goes:

1.)   I have two older brothers and no sisters.

2.)   I grew up in DeKalb, Illinois and I worked in the corn fields when I was a teenager pollinating corn.

3.)   My dad’s side of the family was from Croatia (original last name was Kovacevich) and my mom’s side was Swedish.

4.)   I worked as a waitress at a diner/ice cream shop for years and once I dropped a tomato slice on a customer’s head.

5.)   I lived in Spain for a summer in college.

6.)   When I was 16, I drove a Renault Encore.

7.)   I have known my husband since high school.

8.)   I’ve participated in two sprint triathlons, one 10K and several 5K races.

9.)   I was an Alpha Phi at Indiana University.

10.)I love Bret Michaels.  And Kid Rock. (These two fun facts seem like they belong together.)

11.)My first concert was Shaun Cassidy in fifth grade.

12.)I like to play board games especially Rummikub.

13.) I like to play question games and I love those “IF” books.

14.)I dreamed of being Olivia Newton-John in Grease.

15.)I’m a yoga teacher and I can’t do a handstand (yet).

16.)I strongly dislike the word “moist”.

17.)I HATED the movie E.T.

18.)I used to work at Disney World and I can still recite my spiel.

19.)I have had more than my fair share of speeding tickets.

20.)I dream of going to the Academy Awards.

21.)I just quit Diet Coke after a 25 year love affair.  (I know this is a good thing but sometimes I stare longingly at other people’s Big Gulps.)

22.)My first job out of college was with Prudential Insurance.

23.)I’ve always kept a journal.

24.) Reality TV is my guilty pleasure, I especially like watching the Kardashians.

25.)I can touch my tongue to my nose.

What about you?  What are 25 things people might not know about you?
