Announcing…

Announcing…

My first worldwide Bible study. I am very excited to announce that, as part of my fourth year thesis for my Christian Studies undergrad, I have been working on a project I am very excited to release. A Bible study done online, and also with […]

Is There Really Power in Prayer?

Is There Really Power in Prayer?

Have you ever heard someone say they “believe in the power of prayer?” As a Christian, I agree with this statement… somewhat. See, I don’t believe that a prayer in itself has power. My own lifting up words of praise and petition is not powerful. […]

What Makes Thanksgiving My Favourite

What Makes Thanksgiving My Favourite

“Over Christmas? Really?” That’s usually the reaction I get when I tell someone that Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday. But in my house, it’s the same every year. My mom makes the most amazing turkey dinner on the planet, for one thing. And the smell […]

On Worship

“Put it this way: if your idea of God, if your idea of the salvation offered in Christ, is vague or remote, your idea of worship will be fuzzy and ill-formed. The closer you get to the truth, the clearer becomes the beauty, and the […]

That song that goes “how deep is your love?” To be honest, sometimes not so deep. Right? Sometimes we don’t wanna love. Sometimes our family gets a little too on our nerves, we’re absolutely exhausted from a long day and feel like we’re not “going […]

Trusting in the "Delay"

Trusting in the "Delay"

Much of today’s musings are inspired by a wonderful message preached by Pastor Mike Rutledge   at Risen City church yesterday, where Jesus met me in my own worries, stress, and anxieties and revealed newness to me as His Spirit does, starting when I so loudly […]

Solitude over Society?

Solitude over Society?

In a world more automatically public than ever before, solitude and silence are inadvertently taboo, yet a large part of most people’s day. In my experience, at least, we as a society are more antisocial than ever before, many thanks to social media. I see […]

Daily: Do You Choose Quality our Quantity?

Daily: Do You Choose Quality our Quantity?

This question sums up my most recent conviction. Daily, we are faced with lies. Ads telling us we need to focus on anti-aging when the truth is that we all age. Or that implementing x could add 5 years to your lifespan. That “just getting […]
