Strange and Wonderful Things

I've written quite a few posts staring a Very Important Person, Steven. I apologize in advance how this blog just might morph into one of those Christian-relationship-blogs where I pose with seasonal floral backdrops and knitted hands on the pages of a Bible. But for now, I'll spare you. I struggled for the first 7... Continue Reading →

The Real World

I've had a love-hate relationship with social media for years. The past 2 years, I've been obligated to keep my Facebook for professional reasons, but finally I have found the loophole that helps me get rid of it once and for all. I've also spent a good part of the past year without Instagram. When... Continue Reading →

Culture and Wisdom

One misty French morning, I made my way to Monday morning worship on campus. It seemed like any other Monday: the reluctant feet of early risers, the coffee, the cheerful "Bonjour!" between coworkers as they gathered in the sanctuary. Worship commenced and I was in "the zone". That's when God dropped The Big One. In... Continue Reading →

Love Songs

The Love and providence of God is so far beyond our own comprehension, there's no grasping its reach. Last year, I had tried to move to San Francisco. The doors closed, timing was off, it wasn't going through. I was sad, but moved forwards. I've been pining for a family: children, a home to hang... Continue Reading →


Excuse me, while I write this, after downing 2 glasses of very cheap Sauvignon and handfuls of chocolate: it's just something I need to write about. Today was a rough day, in a rough month. I sometimes take a step back and replay the day, viewing myself as the unbiased outsider. What is this grown... Continue Reading →


I survived 2016. I've always scoffed at the idea of merely "surviving" ordeals. I want to thrive. I want to live in the midst of chaos and love every moment. However, this year has been the worst of my life. I will say that truthfully. There were moments so low, I couldn't get out of bed.... Continue Reading →
