Whitney Peterson  Transplanted to Seattle by way of Nashville. Saved by grace. These are a few of my favorite things...

I'm packing up to head back for another month in northern Iraq tomorrow morning. When you're only taking the essentials it's good to have clothes that double as a refreshing reminder. I'm so glad to have the opportunity to return and see the abounding hope coming out of Mosul. 💕

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Last night was filled with all kinds of perfection this side of heaven. ❤

Their bravery with this snake was so impressive 🐍!! (I was not so brave 😬)

10 years ago today I stepped off a red eye flight by myself, hailed a cab, and arrived in a city that became my home in more ways than I could ever imagine. I never expected Nashville to become what it has for me but I'm so grateful that it has and that I get to be here to celebrate 10 years of the impact this city and its people have had on my life. In honor of having lived here for so long I decided take the most touristy picture I could think of. Here's to 10 years! ✨🤗✨#nashville (📷: @carradru)

And people think they wouldn't like winter in Seattle....being surrounded by this in every direction makes up for any amount of grey and rain we might get in the city. #pnwonderland

Things I was reminded of today.... If you don't face plant into powder at least once you're not trying hard enough.
Good thing I had some awesome teachers to re-acclimate me to the slopes! ❤️❄️🏂❤️

People always ask me if I like my job and these people are why I always answer with a resounding YES!! We may not have taken any group pictures tonight but we hit pause on all the fun to take part in the cultural hashtag challenge of the moment. #girlsnight #mannequinchallenge

It took me a year and a half but I'm really starting to love this city and it's people. #seattlelife 💚💚💚

Nobody in the group enjoyed hunting for a Christmas tree more than Kai.

Spent the last 2 days learning about and training to be a part of a team to medically respond to international disasters and humanitarian crises. I honestly can't tell you what I loved more...soaking in all the new information from experts in the field that I love or the people I met. It's humbling to hear from those who share your passions and have done such incredible things for others and for the kingdom of God despite the sacrifice it may require. What an inspiring 2 days. Here's to the future and spending time around those you want to be more like!

Took a break from life and responsibilities yesterday to get outside and walk around Garden of the Gods with @leahnicdoug. It was beautiful and this guy was super impressive. 👌🏼

From dinner at the reincarnation of The Max a la Saved by the Bell (my favorite show growing up), to the game of the century and the celebrations that followed, none of it would've be the same or even possible without my best friend of 15 years. So glad that my welcome back to the US included 4 days of Amanda, her boys, Chicago and so much joy. Next stop...Seattle!
