Day in the Life: Slip n Slide, Spontaneous Worship, Coconut Cream Pancakes

Awake. In a new, but altogether familiar, room. I am back living in the apartment I lived in all of last year, and I am so happy to wake up here. It feels like home. I remember what Jesus did the day I surrendered my "food rules" to Him, crumpled on the floor in this…

The Glass Castle: A Movie Review

I am not picky when it comes to book-to-movie adaptations. As an avid reader, I've been told people would guess otherwise; that I get worked up and nervous about whether or not a movie will "do justice" to one of my favourite books. The thing is, I love and appreciate movies in their own right,…

WHAT I “ATE” WEDNESDAY: Your Presence, Lord, is Irreplaceable

Today has been beautiful. I am ever-amazed by God's provision and timing over us, and yet isn't it almost prideful that my amazement might exist; for His timing and authority over us is simply an everlasting Truth. I woke up, breakfasted, spent some time in the Word and enjoyed a slow morning before heading out…
