Hi, I'm Katherine Bowman from Iowa and I'm blessed to be living out the dreams that the Lord has placed in my heart! Having a photography business has been a dream of mine for many years. I feel that now is the right time to take the next steps and make it a reality. I am passionate about my relationship with Jesus Christ, my family, Brasil, staying fit, traveling, and of course photography. This blog is a reflection of myself.

Thankful

Last night I read in a Joyce Meyer magazine about one of her mission organizations in India that gives free medical care to people that live in the slums.  I was the most surprised by the illnesses that they had... many that could have been avoided by a healthy diet.  For example, most of the people just eat rice and bread, with little or no protein.  The foods aren't washed properly and they get parasites and worms.  Sewage isn't disposed of properly which infects their drinking water.  One thing that really struck me though was children who would eat mud. They were anemic and because of that, they craved dirt which had traces of iron that their body desperately needs.  
When I read about living conditions in other countries, I am very thankful for what I have.  The Lord has blessed America whether we see it or not, it's true.  So I'm thankful for my small but cozy home, my family, my job, food to eat and my ability to worship my Lord and Savior.  And I'm thankful for all those who fight and have fought for this county.  



Despite the lack of luxuries and even shoes, this boy had a smile a mile wide!!
