• Looking Back, Looking Forward

    Nine year old me wrote about wanting three things: 1. To have a best friend 2. To wear long skirts like a pioneer 3. To travel the world It’s only now that I look back at that and see what I’ve been blessed with. I always wanted a Diana Barry to my Anne of Green […]

  • Delete

    Delete. It’s one of those buttons that can be so satisfying, and also terrifying. Most of the time, there’s no going back from delete. You push that button and it’s gone – that photo of you and your sister… You know the one, you’re both not paying attention to the camera, but it’s kind of […]

  • Salt.

    Recently, a dear friend of mine introduced me to the sermons of Pastor Andy Stanley. I love them. So much. He’s a great speaker, and really hits you hard with the truth. I listened to his series called “Christian” which tackles the stereotypes Christians are stuck into, and calls us back to who we are […]

  • Russia: The Gist of It

    My month in Russia has come to a close. I’d say “finally” but that would come across as ungrateful, and would not reflect what I have learned. Being here, was honestly the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I have never felt so far away from the people I love, the world I […]

  • Here’s to Writing

    I’ve never considered myself much of a writer. Okay, hold up, hang on. I need to stop saying that. I’ve worked long and hard to work on my writing skills, to get them to a point where I’m comfortable sharing what I write. I honestly don’t think I ever will be comfortable with it. But […]

  • Closing Off Switzerland

    My time in Switzerland is drawing to a close… I leave for Russia in just a few days, so I wanted to recap a bit of what God has taught me over the last two months. I walked into this journey with completely open hands. I had no idea where I would go, I had […]

  • What Easter Means to Me… Now

    This Easter season is a different one for me. It’s the first time I’m away from my family, my church and my traditions that make the season complete. Leaving the country, I wasn’t anticipating struggling so much with missing home and family and friends… But I have. And when a holiday so valuable in our […]

  • Winter

    The world rests in Winter… People stay in, animals hibernate, and nature sleeps. It’s natural to slow down in the cold months of the year… Perhaps it is a time for us to reflect on who we want to be, who we want to be seen as, and where (and who) we want our focus […]

  • CompCiv – Paris

    I have mixed feelings about Paris. I am charmed by the culture, the love for art, the love for wine, the love for pastry… The delicate architecture. The sophistication. But it also drives me crazy… The rude people, the awful accents, the unwillingness to help… It’s a hard balance. Nevertheless, it was a lovely few […]

  • CompCiv – Italy

    Time in Italy was divided between Rome, Venice and Florence. Unfortunately I was tired of carrying my camera around in the heat so photos in Florence didn’t really happen. Just an excuse to go back I guess! But here are some from Venice and Rome… Morning markets in Venice Docks Herbs Vegetables Sundries Tomatoes! Girls […]
