It’s not today, but this is my last blog post before my birthday. As far as birthday posts go, I think each year I’ll have to recycle My Birthday: A Memorial Stone because it captures everything so perfectly. If you haven’t read it, then please do! I’ll be sure to reread the full journal entry […]

As I write this, I’ve just finished listening to my favourite cover of I Am by Cece Winans several times – make sure you have a listen (it’s such a blessing and starts around 12:45 into the set). The verse that really stuck out to me was: “I tell the sun to rise, the wind […]

My first exposure to sex was when I was no more than 8 years old. It was on a bus back in Zimbabwe where I saw the bus conductor having sex on a seat with a passenger. At the time, I didn’t think much of it because I had no idea what they were doing. […]

How have you been finding lockdown? As a homebody, I’ve enjoyed working from home. I marvel at those who’ve taken the time to go for walks and consistently post workout videos and running stats. That’s simply not me. My room and I have seen more of each other than ever before… in fact, my bed […]

Durian, starfruit, and karela are revolting. I’m also suspicious of anyone who finds okra or white aubergines palatable. How can I be certain that they’re all vile? I’ve tried them! If you haven’t… spare your taste buds the pain. Please. “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts […]

Growing Young is the paradoxical title of a book by Kara Powell, Jake Mulder, and Brad Griffin. Young people leave church for a variety of reasons and the void that is left means that the church is, in essence, growing old. The book focuses on six essential strategies to aid youth retention, thus enabling churches […]

I wish I could remember why the 13-year-old me wanted to get baptised so badly. Looking back, all I can remember is feeling a sense of urgency because of a campaign that had been happening at the time. It felt like it was now or never. It’s funny how much of a fuss I made […]

Although giving generally has good connotations, an experience last year reminded me that it’s possible to give selfishly. There’s a big difference between giving what you want versus what the other person needs. She needed friendship and quality time, but I convinced myself that money and occasional phone calls would suffice as they were other […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about 2020! Not just this year, but the entire decade. As I write this, I’m reflecting on the past decade and so much has changed… way more than my 14-year-old self could have possibly imagined. But that’s the thing with life, there are so many twists and […]

Present The thing they say about habits taking 21 days to form is so true. Well, in my case anyway. This particular habit (of not having devotion) is one I’d rather not cling to. That probably seems slightly perplexing given that this is a devotional blog and there’s been a post every week this year […]
