To my fellow nurses,

To my fellow nurses,

Thank you for all your commitment and hard work in nursing. For I know this is more than just a job, this is who we are. It is our passion and desire to love, care, and serve..

  • Church shouldn’t be a safe place for your problems

    It is coming up to two years now since I was officially diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Since then I feel that my thinking has largely been caught up in figuring out the best ways to live and maintain a good level of wellbeing.

  • Why Denominations Matter (And Don’t)

    If there is only one way, Jesus, to salvation, why are there so many denominations? Fair question. The diversity (and, sadly, hostility) between denominations is a peculiarity for a religion that claims to have only one way to God.

  • Creativity as worship

    “First this: God created the Heavens and Earth-all you see, all you don’t see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God’s Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss.” (Genesis chapter 1, verses 1-2)

  • Confessions of an untiring procrastinator

    When was the last time I didn’t leave things to the last minute? Whether it be the piled-up laundry that needs to be sussed or an important assignment due the following week, I stretch out my ‘carefree’ leisure time as much as possible to avoid the troubles my duties bring.

  • What’s your motivation?

    We might not always be aware of what they are, but we certainly do have motivations for the things we choose to do with our time.

  • Love anyway

    It’s interesting to see how views and approaches to morality have evolved through the ages.

  • Jesus is the Best Feminist

    When I think of feminists I tend to think of people like Kate Sheppard who campaigned tirelessly to get women the right to vote in New Zealand or Susan B Anthony who worked on countless campaigns to bring equal rights to both women and African American people in the United States.

  • Tales of the unexpected

    The temptation was too much. It was a hot summers day at university and lying on the grass sunbathing one floor below me were half a dozen engineering students.

  • Is there 1 thing we need to live?

    “What’s 1 thing you need to live?” asked my youngest boy. I thought for a moment – is there only 1 thing I need to live?

  • That which will last

    Tiny. That is what it felt like walking among redwood trees. I was mesmerized and somewhat overwhelmed by these giants. I never imagined that I would feel dwarfed by trees!

  • COVID Courage

    We all love a rousing Bible Scripture to tweet or post to our social media accounts. They become motivational memes and niceties that help us navigate long winters and bad days.
