As the resident blogger of Kara J Lovett Co., I have most of my writings carved out on these webpages in cyberspace. But every once and a while, I write a guest blog post for another website or blog.

Using Language to Spur Cross Cultural-Communication in Andorra: A Fulbright ETA Experience
Overall, the Fulbright ETA Program in Andorra taught me a lot about myself—my strengths, my weaknesses, my passions, and my desires. I learned to be confident in my abilities, composed when things went awry, and flexible when changes came my way.

Even though I’m not physically training for a 26.2-mile race right now, I feel like I’m in a marathon in this season of life. There’s a lot of ground that I’ve covered and a lot of ground that remains. Drawing out my energy, this race is testing my levels of endurance.
I’ve had other marathons in my life: trying times at work, busy times with family, searching for a new church community, moving away from friends and family. But my current marathon with my health is a completely different race for me. Trying to battle health problems that can only be managed and not cured—I know this marathon is waning on me.
Are you in a marathon, too?
