How I Pack for a Trip // Lisa Leonard


Look what’s available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble! This thing I wrote last year is going to be available in a few months.

I’ve barely even told you this…. -1 I’m traveling to Uganda with Compassion International. Once again, this non plane-riding mom got a bunch of shots and was offered the Go Girl (best tagline in the history of taglines: Don’t take life sitting down, apparently I’m still into taking life sitting down, I’ve never really been a Go-Getter (get it?!)) I’ll get on way too many planes, poo in another country, and spend time with children and families who are living in poverty. And I’ll be documenting all of it here on this blog. (Remember last time I did this?) This time my sister will be on the same trip along with two creative bloggers: Joy the Baker and Jeff Goins and of course Shaun Groves will be there along with the precious Brianne McKoy and SURPRISE! Wess Stafford, the President Emeritus of Compassion will be leading the team. We’ll meet way too many adorable children and tell you about the work the local churches are doing through Compassion International and sponsors like you.  Our goal? To find sponsors for 400 children in Uganda.

  1. I’m so excited now I can finally pre-order your book! So looking forward to holding the book in my hands. I’ve been pretty uninspired this week (weather? hormone? probably both), so I’ll go ahead and savor your weekend links to be inspired. Sending my prayers your way as you leave to Uganda – I’ll be following along your journey through your posts. oxox

    I’m also excited to read about your trip to Uganda. Your words from your last trip greatly moved me. Many, many blessings as you prepare and as you journey.

  8. Re: Uganda… I’m sure you’ll hear something like this a lot, but if you visit the Kabatunda Child Development Center and meet a sweet 8 year old called Daphin, will you give her a hug for me? Or a high five if she values personal space like I do. :)

  9. Congratulations on the book! I love the cover.

    Would love to see your book!

  13. If my feet were small enough, I’d love to wear Barbie’s cool pink boots! That doll house is an absolutely amazing work of art, I adore it! I think it would require “the patience of Job” to create such a unique doll house. I would live in that house! Happy Sunday!
