Our 40-inch smart TV died last night. There I was on the couch, browsing a shopping website while the TV played quietly in the background, when the smell of burning plastic wafted it's way to my nose. Initially, I wasn't very perturbed. You see, I am learning tolerance by living next door to someone who… Continue reading Stephen Colbert, Burning Plastic & Unexpected Death
As a woman of God and a preacher’s wife at that, I feel the need to be an example to others. It’s important to me that my life reflects God and that I am not a stumbling block to anyone. Importantly, I do not want to be an embarrassment for my husband. I have looked… Continue reading The Bad Examples of Christian Couples
As some of you may know, my husband Joel Jovaine is a Christian YouTuber. I’m super proud of the work he does on his channel, including some of the stuff we have done together. Recently, he saw one of his early videos. It was a no-frills sort of production – there is no real backdrop,… Continue reading Does Sin Make You Cringe?
I can’t remember the last time I was healthy. Where others are perhaps fortunate enough to be able to list the few times they have been ill, maybe with the flu or a cold, I am flooded with memories of being in and out of hospital, making multiple trips to the doctor, having what seemed… Continue reading Bye, Bye Broccoli, Helloooo Pork Chop!

There was an area along the wall in the backyard that was void of anything; a blank canvas just waiting for me to let my vegetation imagination run wild! Now let’s make something clear – I have a brown thumb.… Continue reading What’s Growing in Your Garden?

Or when he surprises you with thoughtful gifts, cleans the house without being told, or whips out the massage oil because he knows you’ve had a particularly stressful day. There is of course the… Continue reading Don’t Get Married If…
I’m a writer. It’s something that comes seamlessly for me; it’s my thing, my talent, my gift from God. It’s also the thing I struggle with. Let me explain. I’ve written multiple poems, started working on several books, completed scripts for wonderful plays and so on. Yet, the world doesn’t get to see any of… Continue reading My True Colour
I’d been a struggling vegan since 2014. In the name of health, I switched to a (mostly) raw vegan lifestyle. It was a bold move in the eyes of some, something they didn’t think they would have the capacity to do in a similar situation. For others, I was being ridiculous. Why else would I… Continue reading Where’s the Meat?
I had a conversation with a friend recently. She was openly frustrated about a situation which she had been battling for many years; one which seemingly got worse and worse. Based on what she shared, there really was going to be no change, as someone else was involved. That person was the source of her… Continue reading Don’t Expect More than a Grunt from a Pig
