“I will sing, sing, sing to my God, my King For all else fades away And I will love, love, love with this heart You made For You’ve been good always” Still in awe from last night’s Acoustic Worship at Union Church. I’ve had three people pray for me before I went on stage […]

I have a peculiar relationship with sleep: when something comes up, or I have to finish writing an article or a chapter in our manuscript, it’s the first one on the chopping block. There are just so many things that need to be done that there’s never enough time! If I had my […]

“Scars are not injuries… A scar is a healing. After injury, a scar is what makes you whole.” (China Miéville) I have scars on my hand, one covers all the fingers on my right hand from a fire I started on purpose but did not mean to burn. I have stitches on my wrist that […]
