Drastic steps to growth

Sometimes getting to the next level, in whatever context, really requires you to do something drastic.  Something a little different from what you would normally do.

My 20th Birthday/Merry Christmas/ Happy New Year x

  The 'sparkle' of being away at university, with the independence and the fun and the excitement, finally wore off. It's been a while and I would love to come back with a fantastically elaborate reason behind why I suddenly fell off the side of the blogging cliff, but alas I simply do not have…

God Worked Through His Deception

I wrote this post for Lively Stones and can be found here! I was reading Genesis 27:19-33, which is the story of how Jacob, with the help of his mother Rebekah, deceived his father, Isaac and stole his older brother Esau’s blessings.

I am going to university! I achieved and acceded the grades I needed to get into my dream university (which shall remain anonymous for security reasons and whatnot).
