How Long / Poem

‘How Long’, a song by me: It’s what happens when nothing else matters It’s not easy when you know the world is dying, And it’s not easy when you see the people crying. I gave you the best look I have Tell me, is it enough? Just tell me what to say And I’ll tell […]

The Art of Swimming

If there’s something you should know about me, it’s that swimming has never been my favourite thing to do. I have distinctive memories of going to various different swimming teachers throughout my childhood; one in which was slightly intimidating, and I remember I always had to tie my hair up and they supplied elastics if […]

New Music / Playlist

I’ve been away for the past few days at a woman’s retreat called Captivating. There were so many good things about the weekend, which I’ll get into in the next few days blog posts, but for now I think I’ll give you a playlist of the songs that spoke to me the most throughout those […]

The Art of Looking Outside

From where I’m sitting on my bed, I can look out the door that leads onto my balcony, and there is a jacaranda tree. It’s very purple. Very beautiful. From here, it kind of looks like many vibrant grapes clumped together, but as you walk closer you can see soft petals, delicate flowers. I like […]

The Art of Timing

I find God’s timing to be all kinds of mysterious amazingness. And yet I continue to box Him in. Why do I do that when I’ve seen Him work beyond the measures of time? I feel like God has done ‘more’ in me and revealed more to me in the past month than He has […]

The Art of Asking the Right Questions

Lately I’ve mentioned a few times how my assignments teach me a lot and how I get a lot out of them. This is another one of those posts. One of my assignments right now is based on one of the gospels, and we have to look at all of the questions Jesus asks in […]

The Art of Keeping

I know this title doesn’t make heaps of sense, but otherwise it would’ve been too long. I’ve been writing a teaching and going through my notes. It’s on Thursday, and today is the day that I’m going to practise it using the microphone and PowerPoint slide, just so I can get a feel for the […]

The Art of Using Every Opportunity

I was sitting here writing a bunch of teaching notes. I was nearly done; I only had to include some personal testimony and I’d be finished. I finished about two minutes ago, so my mind is still kind of blown. I was writing out my personal testimony, and it hit me how powerful testimony is. […]

The Art of Being Busy

It can be so easy to get caught up in a busy day or week or month. It can be so easy to take that busyness and carry it into the next day or into a social event or into your sleep. I’ve been thinking about how having a busy day affects me. I forget […]
