Let’s Talk About Friendship

For the past few weeks, I’ve been pondering on why it’s so difficult to build true, soul relationships with other people. It’s difficult to start to begin with and eventually they become difficult to keep. I’ve watched people come and go and I’ve watched friendships form and disintegrate. When I see this in my life […]

Fight for Your Heart

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” – Proverbs 4:23 This verse has been preached a thousand times in a thousand different ways. But such are the joys of the Bible being living and active – there’s always something new to get from it every time. Allow me to […]

Fairytales

We live in a fairytale world of wonder and tragedy, where darkness is pitted against starlight and battles between good and evil happen everyday. Every day is a fight between love and hate, joy and despair, life and death. Every day is a fight to hope. Yet for all the twists and turns, for all […]

I Want To Get Engaged Too

You guys, I’m not kidding. Two men got down on one knee to propose to two of my friends last week and while I deeply rejoice with them, I can’t get out of my head the fact that life is quickly passing me by. It’s surreal to think that we went from talking about wedding […]
