…that life is all about the “little moments?” Romans 12:10 “Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.” I have written about it countless times. And I think about it all the time. But sometimes, in the heat of a moment, it doesn’t […]
Wakin up next to my best friend this morning was like livin the dream again, finally! [wpvideo AuGFYqqH] Maddie, my roomie who is moved back home for the summer, slept over last night at our student house that we, during the school year, live in […]
If you want to make my day and make me so excited, all you gotta do is ask me to go for breakfast and spend time in the sun. Basically the best thing to wake up to.
So, when my dear friend from Starbucks Ashlie asked me to go for a breakfast catch up and take photos in the sun for her portfolio, I was like HECK YES!
Starting the day with some time in God’s Word, then heading out with a kind, selfless friend for a hearty breakfast and a sunshine photo shoot made for a blessed Wednesday. All throughout the day, God put people on my heart and brought me near to Him in prayer, reminding me of His #1 position in my life, and so prayer made up a big portion of the beginning of my work day after time with Ashlie.
Work today consisted of WRITING! And more writing! I spent four hours on different projects, and am excited to share and announce some new ones soon. I know that writing is a gift that I’m meant to utilize and grow in, and I am blessed that it NEVER feels like work, but joy just overflows.
Homework came next. I’m in one online class for the summer called Comedy and Romance in Shakespeare, and I’m loving it! I worked on that class before taking a break to watch Masterchef, make dinner, and prep for Youth in the evening.
The opportunities God has blessed me with and used me for at youth at the church I’m serving I am so thankful for. Tonight, with the high school youth, I had the opportunity to to give the message tonight, which was all about the influence God calls each of us to have on those around us, and hopefully empowering students in that! It was such a wonderful night, and I can’t explain the special relationships I’ve been able to engage in with so many girls, and leaders alike. I so highly recommend working with students and mentoring.
That’s all from me! I’ll post the notes from the sermon next week, and be sure to check back tomorrow for a new smoothie recipe from me that’s been percolating ;).
God, YOU are the ONLY THING constant in the chaos. Equip me with Your joy, strengthen me with Your Word, may I love others through Your Spirit. Amen.
In many circumstances, I often feel the need to facade professionalism, or to “put it on.” At work as a barista and server; in meetings marketing my freelance writing services; even with my kids at youth, sometimes I believe a lie that professionalism is a […]
This weekend, I had the honour of being a bridesmaid to such a beautiful and inspiring woman in my life, Emily. Here is the speech I gave at the reception: I first met Emily when I was this awkward grade nine and she was in […]
