For the love of the game

For the love of the game

I honestly think one of my favorite types of camps that we have here at Totara are our sports camps.   This is not because it is sports all day long, every day for a week, though that is pretty epic.  Rather it is because I have the opportunity to teach kids about the sport I […]

When your eyes are opened…

When your eyes are opened…

  This is day two of the dare and I have to say that already I feel this stir in my heart, that maybe in my life I have seen things through cloudy vision. As I worked and laughed through my day yesterday, my eyes were opened up to the fact that God was in […]

Truth or Dare?

Truth or Dare?

I came across a very interesting concept from one of my friends today and it challenged me into action. Today I will embark on a game of truth or dare. You remember the game from your younger years? I was not particularly fond of the game. I was always trying to weigh up in my […]

Godspeed….

Godspeed….

Afghanistan. It’s one of those words that come with mixed emotions for Americans. Regardless of our views politically, a lot of Americans and Afghans have lost their lives in battle over there. I’m sure if you ask most Americans, they will be able to tell you someone they know who has been involved in the […]

The Sand

The Sand

If you know me well, you would know that I don’t like the beach. So you would probably think this is me venting about how much I hate the beach. WRONG. For once, I am using the beach for good. I had an encounter with my pride the other day. I realized that pride can […]

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

I sit down at my computer this morning, staring at the blank page seeing the blinking cursor.  It seems to be mocking me… challenging me, “do you REALLY wanna go there”??!! But, as I smile, I know that I have never been one who is good at backing down at speaking Truth, even if it […]

Even when the world is shaking…

Even when the world is shaking…

Today my heart was broken for families that I love. I felt my heart squeeze until I couldn’t breathe anymore. I fought back the tears that threatened to explode out of me and I swallowed the rage that swelled up inside of me.  And  I thought of all the many reasons that these situations were […]

The art of memorisation

The art of memorisation

I live in a world where memorizing things is a joke. I’m a very forgetful person, not on purpose; things just don’t seem to stick. This trait of mine has gotten me into a lot of trouble especially when I was growing up. My mom would tell me something at the beginning of the day […]

Think about it…

Think about it…

I just need to write quickly about something that has been bothering me for a while now. When did it become okay for us to joke about rape? One of my least favorite terms that have been deemed socially acceptable is fraped. Being fraped literally means facebook raped, which simply means someone has gotten into […]

I am not who I used to be….

I am not who I used to be….

“What this means is that those who become  Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!”- 2 Corinthians 5:17 “But forget all of that-it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do a brand-new […]
