What Christianity Tells Me About #LoveWins

When I tell people I’m a Bible-reading, church-attending, Hillsong-singing Born Again Christian, they ask me a number of things – one being what I think about homosexuals. In the years that I’ve been a professing and baptized Christian, I’ve seen and heard much from both ends of the spectrum. We have gotten bad reputation time and […]

Exchanging Apathy for Passion: How to Restart Your Spiritual Life

Burnt out, exhausted, and lifeless…are these words to describe your time with God? We’ve all been there. There are divine seasons marked by one breakthrough after the other, fueled by God-breathed passion – when Scripture feels supernaturally alive, life is full of purpose, and God’s mission is clear. Then we wake up, barely willing to […]

3 Things I’m Taking with Me from 2017

One glorious breakthrough after another, 2017 is a year of relentless, God-ordained humbling (and heartbreak, if I may truthfully say so). Some days were lusterless and devoid of hope while others were painstakingly designed by the Creator – to reveal Himself to me, or through me. I cannot ask for anything better for I’ve learned […]

New Rules: Everything I Want to Tell Women Who Settle

In Dua Lipa’s New Rules MV, you see a group of beautiful women – with mascara-dripped faces and blinding highlight – “supporting” one another (emotionally) in a singsong, theatrical production. As of writing, it has 33M views – pretty sure because many can relate. Let me tell you something, it’s everything I want to tell my […]

Progress Over Perfection

We were created for exceptionally great things – because we were designed by an even greater God. But more often than not, the pathway to greatness involves terrible first drafts, overexposed photographs, lifeless audition reels, and the list continues. Unfortunately, a lot of these don’t even get to see the light of day because human […]

Finding God in My Unremarkable Days

At the beginning of the week, I was a wretched mess. I found myself alone inside the chapel of my Church wrestling with Jesus, crying out, echoing the same sentiments again and again, desperately yearning for better circumstances. I welcomed fear and anxiety to dwell deep within the crevices of my heart. With an empty […]
