I feel like I’m in the middle of two seasons in my life right now. One season that is definitely not my favourite season. Which is making me strongly believe that the next season will in response be the best I’ve ever had. Whether or not that is actually realistic is not the point. I’m […]
Anyone who knows me, knows I am the BIGGEST Christian Hip Hop fan ever! I love gospel music in general but I have a special place in my heart for CHH. I’ve been a fan of Lecrae since I first heard of him back in the summer of 2012. It was actually the month after […]

My heart is really heavy, right now. There are so many things going on in the world that make me feel small, and useless and out of control. Yes, I know this is not about me but I want to be able to feel like I have done something to reduce the hurt that our world […]
“Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”Matthew 6:21 NLT Whatever thing (or person) that is always in your mind becomes a god or an idol on your life. Whatever thing (or person) is the first thing you check in the morning or constantly do because you feel incomplete without […]
As a Christian, I aim to live my life in accordance to God’s word; the Bible. In this present age, this is increasingly harder than in previous generations, because there a million-and-one new things to tempt us.
