  • From the inside out

    The other day, while my husband and I were at the gas station, we decided to use the drive-through car wash because the car was extremely dirty, and we had not been able to find the time to wash it. As we sat in the car and waited, I watched as the car was lathered, washed, rinsed and dried.

  • As unto the Lord

    Recently, I lost a friend who died suddenly from complications with Covid-19. Her unexpected death sent shock waves throughout the church community and among her friends and family. As we met together to reflect on her life and the memories we shared with her, one thing was evident: she gave her best in everything she did.

  • The power of words

    As a child, there was a saying that I (and I believe many other children) would recite whenever someone said something that was meant to hurt or insult me. I would say “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” As I grew older and more experienced, I learnt that was far from the truth.

  • Overcoming negative thoughts

    Sometime last year, I saw a video where a beautiful little girl, 4 years old, was having her hair combed by a hairdresser, when she suddenly looked into the camera and then blurted out “I’m so ugly.”

  • Gratitude is a must

    “I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.” (Psalm chapter 7 verse 17)

  • Flying with our Father

    I recently heard a story of a man who was on a plane returning home from a business trip in another country. It was a long flight, so he decided to lean back, close his eyes, and get some rest.

  • Exercising the muscle of self-discipline

    It is a new year and during this time many people make resolutions to start or continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behaviour, accomplish a personal goal, or simply try to improve their life in one way or another.

  • Your position in the wait

  • Ride out your storm

    “When the storms of life rage, He is God. When there is a downpour of blessings, He is God, and when battles are won, He is still God. No season can ever change who He is.” (Gugu Mona)

  • Seasoned conversations

    “What a difference.” Some thought to themselves, “Is he ok?” Others questioned and yet still others accused “He’s on drugs!” Many attacked his character and others made fun of his appearance.
