I woke up this morning at 7:30. My body was really confused for a while, as to why i was up after such a long week. But as i walked to the catholic church down the road, with Kelcie and Justin, i got excited. For no other reason then i was going on a mini […]Read more "By 9am – home from church: Kingdom of Children"
Usually im no good at picking accents. But this guy was clearly from South Africa. So i asked – “Were you born in south Africa”. It was the start of a conversation that will stay with me forever. I was sitting in a soup kitchen, amongst a cute family with twins. And up comes this […]Read more "doing less and chilling more"
So I’m sitting on a stage, behind a drum kit. My stomach has just gone nuts because it was denied BBQ, and the water i drank to try and soothe it is not working. I’m wearing an amazing green hat from an old room mate, and what i have a feeling is a woman’s shirt […]Read more "An internal Metronome."

DEMAND PUBLICLY OWNED, NOT-FOR-PROFIT, STATE RUN BANKS IN EVERY STATE” I walked into this group of the strangest people ever. At 14, I have a feeling I was the youngest there. The eldest could’ve been in his sixties. He […]Read more "#occupythekingdom"
I was wearing a bow tie. My favourite wedding shirt, borrowed pants and shoes (that i would later repair with sticky tape). I had the honour of walking an amazingly beautiful woman down that aisle, to hand her to my handsome best friend. I’m awkward at the best of times and earlier that morning i […]Read more "Becoming the best wife: And the means to an end."
The Kingdom of God is like a boat that doesn’t sail. On the boat are 100 people, all from different nations and cultures. Speaking different languages, wearing different clothes. But singing the same song. Praying the same prayers. Loving and serving http://wp.me/p1utPe-6P. We went on outreach to Kyiv, Ukraine. And were told that the base […]Read more "Inter Praise."
