Jobless in Singapore

I was 15 when I took my first job. By the time I had moved to Singapore I had been part of the work force for 10 years. I have been a nanny to infants and I have been a live in helper for the elderly. I have been a grounds keeper and I have…

A Year

It has been a year now that I have lived in Singapore. For quite some time I have been trying to think what to write in this post. There is so much I have learned. So much that the Lord has taught me. So much change to have endured. Yet each aspect of the year…

Book Review: Competing Spectacles: Treasuring Christ in the Media Age

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and read Tony Reinke’s Competing Spectacles: Treasuring Christ in the Media Age. Reinke’s discourse on the dangers of the spectacle age, is eye opening. He calls attention to the dangers of our digital world and the way in which it continually draws our attention. Yet this age…

Book Review: Untangling Emotions

    This is a my review on the book Untangling Emotions (2019) authored by J. Alasdair Groves and Winston T. Smith.  Emotion is a hard topic to understand and the fact that it is possible for us to experience multiple emotions at the same time makes it even more challenging. Untangling Emotions offered great…

Lessons in Yosemite

I have been thinking a lot about Yosemite. Perhaps because it is now the time of year I would normally make a trip to the valley. It is a place that has come to hold many memories. It was a place I took friends who came to visit. It was the place where Bryan and…

Christian Family Learning Center

I grew up attending a small Christian school in my hometown. This past month I was asked to put together part of my testimony about my time there. CFLC played a major role in my walk with the Lord and I am honoured to have spent so much time under its tutelage.  

Meeting God in Our Loneliness

Nine months ago, I made many major changes in my life. I got married. I moved. I found a new church. I left my job. I finished school. I left my family behind. For a while, things went very well. There was much to learn and many new things to experience. A second wedding celebration…

6 Months in a New Life

The talk in this time of year is all about resolutions. It is the time of year when we look back on how the past year has gone. We think about the hard times, when things went other than how we hoped and planned that they would. We cherish the good times, when things were…

Showing Honour To My Father

In a few weeks’ time, it will be half a year since we leave our father and mother and hold fast to each other as one flesh in our new family nucleus. We are hopeful that God will provide the grace we need to build our lives on Christ as the foundation of our marriage….

Christmas is coming!

It is amazing how much Thanksgiving is forgotten now days. It seems like very year I see Christmas decorations sooner than the year before. This year Christmas is a bit different. and even though it is still nearly 2 months away, I have found myself thinking on it more. Therefore I thought I would take…

30 Hours in Cambodia

Bryan and I recently had the opportunity to spend just under 2 days in Cambodia. This trip was part of Bryans work. He will be spending 2 weeks there in December on a humanitarian trip through work.  This past weekend was a vision trip for the larger trip to come. We arrived in Phnom Penh…

Thank You

I wanted to take a moment and thank the many many people who took a few minutes out of their day the past 2-3 days to wish my a happy birthday. This year I really wasn’t looking forward to my birthday. On Sunday night I was homesick and wishing so much that I hadn’t scheduled…
