the stuff of life

I think it’s pretty fair to say that life has its major ups and major downs no matter who you are or where you live. Some of us, living in a first world country, live at a higher level of ups, so our downs are not really downs compared to those who live in third world countries. But in our day to day reality, we still have our own roller coaster ride in life....

Jesus

I’ve had so many thoughts swirling through my mind this week; so many questions to ask. And surprisingly enough (even though it shouldn’t be surprising at all), answers have started flowing.

the why

I need to share from my heart in order to process and tell what God has done in me lately. And this is mainly for myself and for the benefit of those who have been longtime readers of this blog. This is a for real “Beauty of Progress” testimony. So let’s testify . . . We’ve lived in the States for 5.5 years now, and it has been the hardest...

Call the Midwife

During a discussion about doulas and midwives, a friend of mine recommended that I read the “Call the Midwife” series of books. I had heard mixed opinions on them, so I hadn’t planned on reading them. But after the conversation with my friend, I decided to start looking for the books. I found the first one in our local used bookshop where we trade...
