JESS// Like The Rain coming April 26th.
WE ARE FULLY FUNDED! 🙌🏻 Thank you all SO much for your incredible support! I love how God pieces these things together so intentionally- thank you for partnering with us to build God’s Kingdom! 22 days till we ✈️ to Mozambique, Africa! Getting more excited every single day!
“You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.” •Been thinking about that word “fulfilled.” How faithful God is to complete the things he starts- how he follows through on his word- how he never drops the ball- never shows up late- never forgets- how he shows grace when we lose faith- how he always fulfills his promises. •Side note, Sunday’s set list is so good. 🙌🏻 Get to @emmanuelccmn Maple Grove Campus.

It’s a great day 🌵
”Have you every pondered way back in the Bible who first thought to sing?” Well, Kenzie and I did.
Sooo many old covers and originals with Kenz on my phone. 90% of them are hilarious outtakes though... If you haven’t heard our most recent cover the full version is on facebook. ❤️ I pray it encourages you to notice those who need to be shown God’s love! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Swipe right for a few of my favorite music memories with Kenz. •Writing about whatever popped into our heads in my old bedroom as teenagers. •Leading together at @emmanuelyouthmn as high schoolers— and all our fine arts rehearsals!😭
•Lol this isn’t us singing but it is us doing our “polar bear dance” at my wedding reception to the kidzbop version of a Bruno Mars song (Gotta keep it clean 😂). •In a month i’ll be posting videos of us leading worship together in Africa. Thanks God. 😭
God’s plans are so incredibly intentional. I always knew I wanted to lead worship, I always had a heart for global missions, and I loved business/ administration. But I had no idea what that would look like for me... I didn’t really feel called to be a full time Worship Pastor, I don’t feel called to be a full time missionary currently and I know I wasn’t called to work specifically in a corporate setting. •The Monday after my last Friday final at North Central University, my role at Emmanuel Christian Center adapted to becoming the Kingdom Builders/ Mission trip admin as well as continuing on staff at the Maple Grove Campus. I get to literally help encourage and support 70+ missionaries every month, I get to send teams to minister around the world, I get to watch people take a step of faith in their spiritual walk, I get to equip people to tangibly build God’s Kingdom. I also get to lead worship with the greatest people in the world on a regular basis and teach music lessons❤️) •I know this is only the beginning... left and right God is surprising us! Like with this sudden opportunity to equip churches in Mozambique... and the fact that we’re ONLY $635 away from being fully funded. ($4,865) raised by YOU GUYS in just a few weeks!) gofundme.com/theballews to help us reach our goal!! 🙌🏻 •Really hoping that from this post you see how clearly God plans. I spent so many years thinking “how is this gonna all play out” how do these passions, skills and desires connect? Which one do I choose? The reality is that even though so many pieces seem to fit right now, God isn’t even close to finished. And if you’re in a season of wondering, you can trust that He’ll work everything together for your good.

“Jesus died on the cross to purchase peace and his resurrection enabled it.” -A peacekeeper takes initiative to view people the way God views people. -A peacekeeper is willing to sacrifice their right to be right. -A peacekeeper defends the image of God in others.

Dear 19 year old engaged me.. I didn’t realize that marriage meant lack of sleep due to a husband who tells me knock knock jokes till 1:00am.
I should’ve realized he’d be that type of man when we started dating. ❤️ Just the best.
