There's a phrase that I've seen floating around the internet, especially in Christian female circles, and at first glance it's empowering. "You are enough!" At first, I kind of felt weird about this phrase, but I wasn't sure why. Maybe it was my own insecurities, not believing it or not feeling "enough". Not pretty enough,… Continue reading You are not enough (and that’s okay)
At the beginning of the year, I decided that I wanted to commit to reading more this year (I guess you could call it a New Year's resolution). I used to be a HUGE reader; flying through whole series in a week as a kid. High school and university pretty much killed my enjoyment of… Continue reading 2019 Book Reviews
You know how when you get married, people ask you the same question every time they see you? Being an interim youth pastor is kind of like that. Every time I talk with someone, the same question comes up, and I have the same rehearsed response. "Have they found a new youth pastor yet?" "Nope,… Continue reading Still me.

Although it is a popular song, it's relatively unassuming… Continue reading The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Experienced in my Whole Life

I still went to school for biology though, and completed my Bachelors of Science in… Continue reading Confessions of an Accidental Missionary
2017 was nuts. If you've missed all my previous blog posts/insta stories/ Facebook updates, the short version is that I had a major career change and entered "The Ministry" - committing to raising up young missionaries and raising all related expenses (like a salary). A couple months back, someone asked how all that was going… Continue reading The Hard Way
PICK YOUR WORD CAREFULLY | PART ONE At the beginning of the year, I wrote a blog post sharing about a "word" that I had picked that represented an area I was asking God to grow me in. I also shared a bit about my experience from the two previous years (with words "patience" in… Continue reading Pick Your Word Carefully | PART TWO
Picking a "word of the year" seems to be all the rage right now, with popular bloggers selecting vision words like zest, intention, or create.
