2020

2020 has been one crazy year for all of us, hasn’t it? We went through a pandemic, which led to countless deaths around the world, depression, we were all forced to adopt a new lifestyle, many lost their jobs, which led to the growth of poverty. And then there was the Floyd situation, which led…

“Lessons our wedding taught us”

I laugh every time I think of the mindset and attitude we went into preparing for our wedding, a laughter o, so bittersweet. Just as we had assumptions about marriage, we had assumptions about weddings. If I would ask you to describe me a Christian wedding, what would you say? I am guessing you would…

Our marriage story: “Why ‘did’ we get married”

We know that the world has its ways, which often is a twisted version of God’s way. So, we decided that we needed to learn what God made marriage to be. And unlearn our own believes about it. After giving it some thought, we decided to ask our pastor and his wife for help in…

For some reason, the inhabitants (the ones we saw) seem like a ticking bomb. The streets and stations we’re filled with people going up…

Travel: The Netherlands, Leeuwarden

When I came from Africa at the age of seven, my innocent mind was filled with all kinds of fantasies about what Europe looked like. Some of them were from the movies I use to watch at my neighbors, and some were created by the stories that were going around in a small town called…

Travel: Venice, Italy

Christmas 2019, my fiancé and I spend this beautiful time with his family in Italy. But not without taking a small detour to Venice. The last time I visited Italy, I only stayed in Rome. Venice was breathtaking! I love water, vintage, and history, this place was the perfect embodiment of these things. I couldn’t…

The Gospel

IntroductionToday’s post is by a guest writer, Zeke Nelson. One of the things that have helped me live-out my Christian faith is by reading the Bible (if you are having an issue with getting through the bible, I have a post on that as well). As I was reading the bible on an everyday basis,…
