I thought I was clinging to God in the world of dating, trusting him and seeking his path for my life. But I wasn't. In all honesty, it was God who was clinging to me.
Recently my church hosted a women's ministry kick-off event where I was one of 3 speakers, sharing a testimony of how I've seen God work in my life. I looked out on the crowd of women mostly in their mid-30s-40s, and several older women and joked that since I was 26 my friends thought I … Continue reading The pains (+joys) of becoming an adult
The mist rose over the water on a perfectly calm lake on a crisp autumn morning. It's so beautiful, I thought. And I wasn't supposed to be here. In fact if the year of 2017 went as "planned" I was to be overseas navigating a new culture and winding through the busy streets of Northern … Continue reading I didn’t expect to find myself here.
I'm not one to make New Years Resolutions, plans, or promises of "change". Actually I'm fairly cynical of such things, and it even took me years (literally) to even enjoy celebrating New Years at all - much thanks to the sweet NYE parties at the annual conference I attend. But two weeks in to 2017 … Continue reading 2017: My Year of “Why Not?”
Spending 4 days in Rousseau at Muskoka Woods was a (winter) dream come true. I'm grateful to work for an organization that deeply cares for its staff - not only our day-to-day work but also our hearts. So at the end of a busy semester of school, escaping away to reflect, and spend time with … Continue reading A Winter Wonderland [Photo Dump]

Whew 8 months feels long to be away from this blog. So much has happened in my life, and it's happened off the internet. Well, except for my Instagram. I love writing, and being creative. My job has taken up much of my creative juices with writing, overseeing Communications, and juggling one too many plates … Continue reading [Photo Dump] Highlights of 2016
Ok so my French skills are zero , but I do have exciting news. This summer as I celebrate the big 25, I'll be basking in the late summer sun of Quebec City! With the throng of hundreds of other tourists I'm sure. It's going to be magical. Road trip, outdoor cafes, the Plains of … Continue reading la ville de Québec!
I finally got around to editing and uploading these long-lost film photos of the Rocky Mountains to when I was there 5 years ago. I'm excited to return to BC in less than a month now. Aren't the mountains gorgeous? They always make me feel really small, like I'm standing in a little piece of … Continue reading Rocky Mountain Collection [BC, Canada]
The last time I was in British Columbia my heart was breaking. I'd like to think I was a victim, but I made some pretty poor choices to get me to that place. No healthy boundaries, unrealistic expectations, and I just couldn't let go. Once you say "I love you" for the first time, in … Continue reading Returning to the mountains: I am new.
