uprooted

A few months ago, I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Inside that bouquet was the cutest little succulent. When the rest of the bouquet died, my mom took the succulent out and planted it in the tiniest terracotta pot, because she thought it might take root. For many weeks it sat on our kitchen [...]

kids + Jesus

Last week was one of my favourite weeks of the summer: Kids Camp! It was my fourth year counselling and my first year as a SENIOR counsellor so it brought a whole new level of responsibility and excitement to the week. I had two amazing junior counsellors, and we had a cabin with ten girls [...]

Thirty Songs for Easter

With Easter upon us, I wanted to craft together a playlist of all my favourite Easter worship songs! Easter is my favourite holiday, and while I listen to most of these songs year round, they are particularly meaningful during this weekend. Check them out, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!   [...]

the things we watch

A couple months ago, my cousins and I were sitting in one of their rooms. We were all just hanging out, laughing, talking about life. The conversation shifted to Netflix, as they began to rave about the show Riverdale. I immediately began to feel uncomfortable. I too, had been drawn into the world of Riverdale. [...]

I have been on a secular music fast for the last couple of months, and it has been absolutely wonderful! I spontaneously got this idea on January first and decided to go with it - just to see how it would affect my mood. My plan was to only listen to Christian music as much [...]

in His time

Alex and I met on this weekend three years ago. At the time, we were both 15. He had a girlfriend, and I didn't really pay much attention to him. But his number was put into my phone when everyone shared their contact info, and we followed each other on Instagram, and for the next two [...]

twenty seventeen

Just before 2017 began, I asked God to give me a word. At first, I heard nothing. I prayed over it continuously, longing for one to jump out at me and say "HEY! Pick me! I'm the one!" I went to buy a new pair of pyjama pants and was just a couple dollars away from getting an extra [...]

We are a Vapour

On Monday when I woke up to the news about Vegas, my heart broke. I sat paralyzed for a few minutes, unable to quite process the brutality. I still don't know how to put my thoughts into words. It is nothing short of pure evil. It's unfathomable how much hurt people who have been affected [...]

Leave the Boat

I read something on Pinterest a really long time ago (like probably a year and a bit or so) and it really resonated with me. Honestly probably because I thought it sounded pretty, but it's one of those things that I just keep thinking of, over and over and over again. Leave the boat. Leave [...]
