When you head to a place like Maui or anywhere in Hawaii, you can easily get focused on the beautiful beaches and draw dropping hikes to take. Something I've found so amazing and intriguing is the people that live there. There is so much deep history running through the land that makes it even more beautiful and the Drums of the Pacific Luau at the Hyatt Regency does an incredible job of telling the stories. We are so thankful they invited us to take part in the tradition so we can tell you about it.
Have you ever had to eat a slice or even a whole humble pie? Well I have, many times in my life. A couple of years ago my husband, being the awesome youth pastor that he is, felt called to talk about grace and forgiveness. I thought it was such a great topic especially since it’s such a huge and deep concept. I mean really, can we fully grasp God’s grace for us? I honestly think that NO ONE can fully know how DEEP and how WIDE His grace is.
We give grace daily – to our children, to our co-workers, to the people who cut you off on the road. Grace has a wide range and covers a multitude of sins or misgivings. But, I’m talking about a grace MUCH deeper than these. I’m talking about life-changing, spirit altering, joy overflowing GRACE that comes with forgiveness.

Have you ever asked God to change your life, but not really known how or why? Well, I have some advice for you… don’t ask it if you don’t mean it!!
4 months ago I spent about an hour touring a court-ordered residential facility for teens. It was only an hour, but I knew that my life was changed forever. This wasn’t the rough and rigid juvenile hall we’ve all seen on TV. Confidence, respect, and smiles filled the sweet faces of my resident tour guides. There are no bars here. No cells. No barbed wire. Instead, the AMIkids halls are filled with counselors, educators, mentors... family.
It's not hard to imagine how a place like Maui can make you feel--relaxed, free, adventurous. Although the carefree vibe is clear everywhere you go, there are certainly a few things you need to be able to jump right in. This last trip was a little different as we went for my sister's gorgeous wedding and there were a lot of people to coordinate with on top of the usual three kids busyness. I'm sharing some of my favorite fashion and travel finds that stood by us in the mix of exploring and relaxation.
