If you know me offline (or online) at all, you’ll know that I absolutely love anything and all things Disney. My laptop background and phone case are of the Disney castle, and my laptop decal is of Snow White. I have an entire wall in my bedroom dedicated to Disney portraits, and I have countless… Read More For The Single Ladies
The new year has started—it’s February, guys—and yet I can’t get Christmas off my mind. Perhaps it’s the monochrome frozen landscape around me, but I yearn for brightly coloured twinkling lights and warm, turkey dinners under a star-lit sky. If there’s one story to cross my mind during the Christmas season, it’s the nativity story.… Read More What Is Your Christmas Star?
You’re off to work, or school, first thing in the morning. Grabbing a caffeinated drink, you hastily shove a half-burnt piece of toast into your mouth before you rush out the door, avoiding the downpour outside, and you get in the car. The inevitable accident on the highway causes you to be late, and you can’t… Read More I Don’t Know Anything, And That’s Okay
When it comes right down to it, I feel uncomfortable with calling myself a “writer”. I had always imagined writers as people who hunch over their typewriters (now computers), writing over 1,000 words a day without fail. Write an epic novel in half a year? No problem! But while writing is something that comes fairly naturally to… Read More Writing and Christianity: Drawing Parallels
Since I’ve been going to a church geared towards young adults, I’ve met all kinds of people around my age. That is, in their early-to-mid twenties. And as always, you get along with some more than others. More importantly, of course, you find guys and girls coming to church to look for a relationship with… Read More For The Man Who Seeks A Relationship
Many of us Christians have heard the words “read your Bible”. Without knowing the Bible, we are more likely to allow ourselves to follow unbiblical teachings because we will lack discernment necessary to distinguish truth from lie. And if that’s not enough, we won’t be able to respond to criticism against our faith on a daily… Read More When Reading Your Bible Is Hard
Part of not being in school anymore means that I don’t need to see couples holding hands and walking to their classes. As a single 23-year-old, I’m very happy with this. But on the flip side, not being in school adds more societal pressure on me to find “the one”. Settle down, get married, have… Read More Single and Ready to Mingle – But Wait.
It’s with a heavy heart that I write this post. I had a different topic planned. But after watching the news about the Las Vegas shooting this week, I knew I needed to postpone it. On October 1st, 2017, one man killed around 60 people, and injured over 500 at a Jason Aldean concert in… Read More When Bad Things Happen: Las Vegas Shooting
I walk into church and people are already talking to each other in their seats or in the lobby. They smile and laugh, happy to be in their own groups. Everyone belongs to a group. They sit together with the friends they’ve had for years. They make plans for lunch after service, patting themselves on… Read More Looking at the Church: Do You Feel Like You Belong?
Since its release in 1994, most of us have seen the Disney Hamlet adaptation, and cinematic masterpiece otherwise known as The Lion King. Disney has shaped me, like many others, throughout my childhood. But there is undisputedly only one scene which broke my heart first, before all others. I think most of us know which… Read More 6 Things That I Learned From The Lion King
