Welcome friend! I'm Ali and I am a law student from Dallas, Texas. After my first year of law school I accepted a year long legal internship with International Justice Mission on the other side of the world. So, I packed up this January and moved to Africa and now Eastern Europe-- and I want you to join the journey with me!

On this website I post weekly stories about life in Uganda and Romania. I love sharing short stories, good recipes and simple joys. Life is better when we place intention in every step and search for the extraordinary in the mundane. I am not always good at this, but I am trying and I want to encourage you to try as well. I hope my stories inspire you to celebrate the extraordinary within your own life. So pour a hot cup of coffee and pull up a chair, I can't wait for you to join me.

Lastly, as you follow along, I hope you consider supporting me. Support through prayers, support through shares and support through donations, the smallest things make the biggest differences. Click Here to DONATE and make my time serving with IJM possible.
