Hi everyone! This is not a typical post. A lot has been going on in my life, and with a new year comes new things! So I'd like to share some of those with you today. (if you're really impatient and want to get to the part where I talk about my NEW SITE, scroll... Continue Reading →

2017 – Perspectives | 2018 – Reach

This year changed me. I hope there is never an ending of a year when I cannot say those words. In 2017, I learned to open wide my heart to the unexpected things God was doing in my life. Instead of holding back my heart, with iron-walled defenses against the possibility of hopes being dashed,... Continue Reading →

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth. The stars hang overhead, on the quiet Bethlehem hillside. The shepherds stand there, spaced around the area so as to keep in sight the many sheep in their care. I wonder, do they talk among themselves? Or are... Continue Reading →

More real to me

One of the most pressing questions we often have about things in life is Is it real? When we are scared, we want to know if the threat is real.
