I’m sure those men had done this a thousand times before. They knew the drill; wake up before dawn and head off to work deep in the Chilean Atacama Desert mine until their shift was over and it was time to return home, completely exhausted, only to begin again the following day. Of course, they … Continue reading Hope Underground
I wanted to take a few moments to appreciate the people that I have the privilege to call my friends and family! They stand by my side, listen to me, push, encourage and pray for, and with me. After all, a birthday is a good day to take a moment and reflect on the best … Continue reading An open letter to my friends and family
Have you ever felt like what you bring to the table is not enough? It could be any table, like at your workplace or in your family or in your contribution to society. Have you ever felt like your efforts are unappreciated and you feel like you’re not even causing a ripple in the great … Continue reading Bring it all to the table
At first glance, these two words together might sound redundant. As a friend of mine pointed out during a worship study she conducted with the same title (This post is based on my notes from her study... it was soo good!).

I feel like my stomach is churning at a hundred k’s an hour and my vision is blurred.” This is just one example of the many times that I would experience panic attacks and deep feelings of anxiety. This was a daily experience for many years and I wondered if it was … Continue reading I am the only One: A poem
I was recently chatting with a friend about the joys and in their opinion, mostly woes of canvassing. If you have not heard of canvassing before, it is basically going door to door in a neighbourhood selling, in this case, books. It is a very challenging and exciting way of working and if the idea … Continue reading Jump in the deep end! It’s worth it…
Have you seen Leonardo Da Vinci’s autograph on paintings? Or Elvis Presley’s? The fact that such a famous or talented person signs something makes the object full of value and often worth a lot of money. These works of art are usually called masterpieces and placed in beautiful museums for all to enjoy. We ourselves … Continue reading Autographed
I think many of you can probably relate to what I'm about to share. When life gets busier and more rushed, I tend to cull things from my life in order to make more time for those things that are scrambling for attention. The problem is that many of those things tend to be the … Continue reading Is your house on fire?
The beach is one of my absolute favourite places to go. I don’t even have to be in a holiday kind of mood, it's the place where I can go and just soak up the sun, waves and the horizon. One of my favourite games was to imagine what I would see past the horizon. … Continue reading Make Them Bigger!
