Covid-19: Active Rest

Since our provincial government has encouraged us to stay at home, I have been trying to plan out meals and calendar activities for this month and next. I fully intended on staying inside and not risking going out for shopping, but as our risk of contracting the virus will only increase over the next several... Continue Reading →

Speaking your truth

In my research into hypothyroidism, I came across the Hindu teachings about chakras. To be clear, I don't ascribe to Hinduism but my interest was piqued by their belief that thryoid issues were due in part to not using your voice. Acquiescing to others when you know you shouldn't; staying silent instead of speaking up;... Continue Reading →

Renewed: Day 37, Having a Voice

"When we remain silent or refuse to use our gifts, we hamper the body of Christ from achieving its fullness. God places members in the body of Christ to bring it to health, and we are part of the body. Our voices and gifts matter." (Renewed, Leigh Powers, pg 155) I am passionate about people...

It wasn't about the outer garment. Gifts are rarely accurately reflected by their packaging. It was all about... Continue Reading →
