Instagram Public Photos with #jessefreedom

I’m sat in jfk airport right now, after a slightly traumatic day (knowing me, i’ll probably blog about it soon ๐Ÿ˜‰) and just had to take a moment to honour the people you see smiling above.
@paulwandrew @andiandrew @rvannamangreen @mavisakanonni the way who have loved on @phillipattmore and i, in the midst of one of our hardest years to date, is not normal. you literally let your home become our own, and embodied what it means to be and build family. as excited as we are for our season in chicago, we will miss you immensely!
also, @mavisakanonni you truly are a wonderful momma. thank you for holding me today ๐Ÿ’—

This one hit a home run this morning (didn't touch all the bases so it didn't count ๐Ÿ˜” lesson learned.) quick stop at dub pies for a sausage roll and into an uber to @libertychurchsoho ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ #jessefreedom

He's 8 today. #jessefreedom - who's name means "gift of freedom" is growing into just that sort of young man. cleaver and deep. funny and old man serious. handsome and tender, and a passionate firecracker! we are grateful that he was given to us as a gift from heaven 8 years ago today. happy birthday jesse freedom!

Caption this! .

the only photo i managed to take tonight at @amarkschrader and @trishschrader ‘s leaving party but i kinda love it. to me it’s evidence of the richness of people that filled the room this evening to love and celebrate you both, and also how much fun was had by us all. cheering you on as you go!
@deebeck and @rajiahsan there is never a dull moment with you two around, thanks for passing this on to the next generation ๐Ÿ˜‚

Jesse - you are something special. thoughtful, deep, kind, tender hearted, loyal and super handsome ๐Ÿ˜‰. you live up to your name. (jesse /หˆdส’ษ›si/, or yishai (hebrew: ื™ึดืฉึทืื™, modern: yišay, tiberian: yฤซšáy, meaning"king" or "god exists" or "god's gift"). even in the last weeks i have discovered more of the depths and the wonder of who you are. and your middle name - freedom.... liberty.... the release of captives - i am seeing this in you as you discover jesus love for yourself. my son, you are gods gift to us... i love you more than words will ever be able to say. happy 12th birthday. may this be your best year yet. #jessefreedom #happybirthday #vsco

#jessefreedom is almost home from southern africa with his dad. cannot wait to squeeze them both. it seems like yesterday that he was holding cars - always one in each hand - and dressing up in multiple costumes. now he’s telling me on facetime which city in africa he’d love to live in ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ okay, time can stand still now. .

comment 10 star 322 February 2019

Since he was 5, africa has held a big space in this kids heart and it only gets bigger with time. today he leaves with his dad to go to @libertychurchmanzini and all around southern africa. this will be his 5th trip there (he’s been there more than me).
.
.
the truth is, we made a decision a long time ago to bring our kids with us on the journey. they are not a separate to our calling and destiny as a family, we are all called and in it together. it’s not always easy, it is costly on several levels, and totally worth it. when you watch nations bring written on the heart of your children in ways that you can’t fully comprehend - because god - the hustle, planning, long plane rides, financial and emotional investment, homework from teachers (that we don’t always get ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿฅด) and investment of one on one time are worth their weight in gold. #jessefreedom .

8 years in the city with this crew, plus one brooklyn born samuel malachi not yet pictured. i am beyond grateful for every moment. the highs and the lows, the joy and the sorrow, the triumph and the tragedy and everything in between. the faithfulness of god has been the through line in it all. wherever you are, whatever season you find yourself in, take a moment to look back today and remember god. remember his faithfulness even when you couldn’t see it, feel it or perceive it. he has always been there. #nyc .

comment 30 star 939 October 2018

Well, you'd think i would have posted a selfie with this thing the moment i ripped open the package. truth be told, i was in a bad mood when it came. i was sitting under a pile of back to school paperwork for my kids, with lists upon lists of things i needed to purchase yesterday, and 30 forms i needed to fill out and sign per kid. not to mention, all 4 of my children seemed to have “urgent" questions, interrupting every moment i’d just get back in to a work flow. slight exaggeration, but - you get the point. truth is, that night, my kids still needed to eat their dinner, bathe, be looked in the eye, loved, acknowledged, seen, tucked in and prayed for (sometimes i even bless them with a rap), and i still needed to pack for the trip i was going on early the next morning. and i hate packing. whoa is me. in the middle of my pity party, i turned and my son, jesse, was reading the dedication written out to him and his brothers and sister in the book that i carelessly ripped open without even celebrating for a hot second. i quickly looked at it, set it down, and acted as though it was just another interruption to my day. jesse was silent, smiling, and pensive as he read. he turned to me with his deep brown eyes, with a sweet smile on his face and said, “thank you mom.” you see, this is a love letter to my kids, it’s a love letter to the church today. it’s about the beautiful mess that is following jesus with a radically surrendered life. i snapped out of my pity party, embraced the chaos (and my child), and remembered to be present. #fakeorfollower #jessefreedom

comment 14 star 320 December 2017

They’re not perfect kids, but they’re pretty awesome. i love raising children in godly community. the moment our family walked in to hang at the farragut community center in brooklyn a couple weeks back, @quincycarmichaeljr grabbed my boys by the hand and gave them each a set of gloves to serve with. he set them up at the dessert table and they stayed there the whole night. it was simple and powerful. he set them up to love on others and it doesn’t hurt that it was with pie! i know in the future when my boys get older, i’ll be calling jr and other great men in our midst to come and pick up my boys to hang out with them, disciple them, show them what it is to be a godly man. i am so grateful for the countless amazing men in our midst that they get to do life with - especially @paulwandrew

#jessefreedom - our "gift of freedom"... this world is yours to love well and show the fathers heart to, revealing the truth of his nature and goodness. i believe god named you well and that you are a gift of freedom, spreading his good news wherever you go. as i sit here in meditation and prayer this morning, i am filled with overwhelming gratitude that daddy and i have been entrusted with your life. the day you were born 10 years ago was filled with such laughter and joy - you still bring that to our lives today. happy birthday sweet, fierce, and tender boy - you are greatly loved. #enjoyyourboysweekend #happybirthday #nyc #brooklyn #doubledigits
