I've never been a math wiz. In fact, it took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to achieve my math goals in high school (ok, maybe not the blood). My beliefs about ability have changed a lot over the years and I believe that we can become good at the things that we are … Continue reading Keep Going, You’re on the right track!
(This is an article I wrote for a youth magazine recently and wanted to share it with you all). Shopping for the right shoes has always been a daunting feat for me. It just seems to take much longer for me to find shoes that fit just right. One thing I know for sure is … Continue reading What does the bible mean when it says to put on ‘readiness for the gospel of peace’ shoes?
I read that quote today and I loved it! So I thought I'd include it in my next blog post! I went to a Women's Retreat in November last year and learnt soooo much! Actually, I wanted to share the story of how this women's retreat came together and why it meant so much for … Continue reading Life is short, make each hair flip fabulous!
I’m sure those men had done this a thousand times before. They knew the drill; wake up before dawn and head off to work deep in the Chilean Atacama Desert mine until their shift was over and it was time to return home, completely exhausted, only to begin again the following day.

Have you ever felt like your efforts are unappreciated and you feel like you’re not even causing a ripple in the great … Continue reading Bring it all to the table

As a friend of mine pointed out during a worship study she conducted with the same title (This post is based on my notes from her study... it was soo good!). The thing is, I have been toying with the idea of those words since … Continue reading Bold Confidence
Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:4 God never gives us empty promises, there is truth and power in his words if we choose to believe them and apply them in our lives. What if we try and see what God is all about? … Continue reading A promise that sparks change…
“I can’t breathe.... I feel like my stomach is churning at a hundred k’s an hour and my vision is blurred.” This is just one example of the many times that I would experience panic attacks and deep feelings of anxiety. This was a daily experience for many years and I wondered if it was … Continue reading I am the only One: A poem
I was recently chatting with a friend about the joys and in their opinion, mostly woes of canvassing. If you have not heard of canvassing before, it is basically going door to door in a neighbourhood selling, in this case, books.
