Am I Ashamed?

Are you a people pleaser? I am. As a little girl, I was often pushed aside by others my age, and I struggled with what my peers thought of me. As I grew up, I became even more concerned about others' perception of me. I did everything I could think of to be the person... Continue Reading →

When You’re Choosing Your Tomorrow

Today's one of the biggest days of my post-secondary education - it's the day I decide on which concentration I'll be studying. To some of you, that doesn't sound like much of a decision. However, for this can-never-make-up-her-mind woman, this day has been haunting my mind since before the first day of college. Whenever it... Continue Reading →

The Battlefield of Books

While waiting to meet up with some friends yesterday evening, I decided to peruse through the nearby bookstore. Hoping to (maybe) find a couple of solid Christian nonfiction books I didn't have, I quickly made my way to the "religious books" section. There wasn't much new or different that was solid doctrinally. Just as I... Continue Reading →

Do Not Conform

I hate sticking out. So often I want to blend right in with the crowd. The thought of being singled out or ridiculed because I might be different from others in a particular area is just plain awkward and uncomfortable. I don't exactly enjoy standing up for what I believe while everyone else standing around... Continue Reading →

According to my plans, leaving the construction industry and entering fast-food services wasn't an option. Being hindered in slight but significant ways physically frustrated me greatly. Circumstances that evolved around... Continue Reading →

All We Need Is Him

Since the two weeks I lived a restricted life-style for a self-imposed challenge, I am shocked by what I have been learning. Growing up in a well-off North-American family, I took a lot for granted. I simply expected to always have needs met. The many things my heart constantly desired were easily considered a 'must'... Continue Reading →

Meeting Trials With Peace

When you're caught in the trials and frustrations of life, where do you turn?   I'll be honest: the past few weeks were difficult. As an emotional person, I tend to get caught up and overwhelmed so easily, and with the mixture of making a few major decisions for my future and a lack of... Continue Reading →

The Woman in the Mirror

This weekend I enjoyed the privilege of attending a wedding of some dear friends of mine. The wedding was beautiful, the bride was radiant, and the evening was a joyous celebration of two lovebirds joining into life-long union. As I sit here musing over the wedding celebration, this evening brought a question to mind. During... Continue Reading →
