Blogmas Day 2: Favourite Christmas Films

Last night my husband and I were cuddled up on the couch watching a Christmas movie and we decided to haveĀ a Christmas movie marathon (fun fact: we fell asleep half-way through the second film so there really was no marathon). We sat and pulled out all of our Christmas movies and picked out our favourite…

Hello all! I hope you are having a great week so far. Sorry for the tiny hiatus, I just started a new job and my schedule has been all over the place but I feel that I have a better handle on things. With that said I am doing another combined post today for the…

30 Days of Gratitude, Day 6: God’s Provision

I am truly thankful for God’s provision in my life. As Christians, we must trust that God will provide for us, even when trusting is difficult or you feel hopeless. God does provide everything for us, it just isn’t in our own timing or sometimes, it does not match the idea we had. God has…

So today, I’ll be catching up and combining days 4 and 5 into one post! Day 4: What attribute of God are you thankful for? God…

30 Days of Gratitude, Day Three: A Childhood Lesson

When you are young, the lessons you learn are important for shaping you as you grow and mature into adulthood. We can be taught lessons through experiences, through rules, through social interactions, and my personal favourite, through stories (written or spoken). Not all of the lessons we learn as children stem from positive experiences, but…

30 Days of Gratitude, Day Two: A Friend

Hello everyone! Today we are expressing gratitude for a friend. I have quite a few good friends in my life and I am grateful for all of them, as they have all added to my life in their own unique ways. A friend that I am grateful for is a relatively new friend. I met…

Canadian Thanksgiving and 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge

Yesterday, Danny and I went pumpkin picking before heading to my parents’ place for the first out of two thanksgiving meals. We looked around for quite…

Dealing with Anxiety as a Christian

Anxiety can be one of the most debilitating, horrible things to experience. Fearfulness is natural, worry is natural, but anxiety, at least for me, is obsessive fear and worry. It is intense at times, overwhelming, and scary. It can take control of everything in your life. The fear rules you and drives you. I have…

I’m Back!

Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I’ve posted…again. I’ve been going through a few changes and challenges over the past couple of months and I felt that I needed to take a break from everything and work on myself for a little while before I continued to write. I strive to be…

Every Day May: Days 3, 4, 5, and 6

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great morning so far. It’s chilly and raining here in Stratford and I am currently cuddled up under a blanket with a hot cup of tea and my cat Trevor sitting at my feet as I write this. I love cozy mornings like this, just relaxing and…
