How Do I Read the Bible?

Hi, I don’t know how to read my bible. I do devotionals that reference bible verses but I want to actually read the Bible. Where do I start? Hey love! There are a lot of different ways to read the Bible, but Devotionals are a great place to start. I’d suggest starting off by reading for context. So when you read those Bible verses that come with the devotionals, read the entire chapter as well. Figure out what exactly the writer wanted to say. The second way I’d suggest reading it is chronologically – at the beginning. There’s a reason the Bible is in the order it’s in – it tells a story. So start at the beginning and work your way through to the end. And before you open it each time, pray. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring the words alive to you in ways you never imagined….

Zucchini Boats

Zucchinis are probably one of the more versatile vegetables you can have in your kitchen. You can use them to make noodles and cakes and everything in between.

Why I Left The Church

This piece should really be called, Why I Left The Church (Then Went Back Because I Realized It Was All A Matter Of Perspective), but making you cringe in horror or raise your brows in interest was too good of an opportunity to miss LOL. I’ve heard so many of these stories over the last year – of people being fed up with the institution of Christianity – that I thought I’d tell my own story, and share what I learned from the experience. So here it goes:   I don’t know how you grew up, or what your parents’ preference was for suitable activities or weekend plans, but in my house, Jesus was King. That meant that almost anything and everything we did was centered around Christianity and the Church. By the time I was four, I knew every Don Moen and Ron Kenoly song by heart, and my…

Cool Kid Christianity: Where Grace Means You Get To Do Pretty Much Whatever You Want

Walk into any non or interdenominational church on a Sunday morning (or evening, which is when most of these churches hold their services these days), and you will most likely be met with a pleasing sight: throngs of young people in black fedoras, Justin Bieber haircuts, and ripped denim, all lifting their hands in worship of the Almighty. It’s an amazing sight to see in a generation that has such a desire to go its own way to ‘Carpe Diem’ and ‘Do As Thou Wilt‘ without regard for anyone or anything else. I know this picture well, not only because I attend one such church, but because I am one of them. I am the girl in the cool hat and Adidas originals, holding her Venti Chai Tea Latte (3 Pump, Coconut Milk, Lite Water, No Foam, Extra Hot, of course), and jumping up and down to ‘This is Living‘ at the…

Where Is My Fire?

Hi, I don’t know whether this is really a question but I just wanted to share. All my life I have been the best student, everyone saw me as someone who was going somewhere and would do great things, more importantly I saw myself as that. I felt I had a purpose. Later on, I wasn’t able to go to the uni I wanted and ever since then my life has been on a downward spiral. From the outside, I like normal but I am suffering from a deep depression. I have considered suicide many times, I feel no enthusiasm for anything in life, I have gained so much weight, I have stopped working out I have just given up on life. I have tried in the past to change my life but it feels like nothing changes. Frankly I just want to give up, I feel like a leaf…

De Bon Aire: Jake’s Story

De bon aire: Old French used to describe a gentleman of good disposition. Debonair: A man of confidence, style and charm. Whichever form of the word you choose to describe Jake, you can’t go wrong, as both more than aptly describe the man who has come to be one of my dearest friends. As a Christian you come to be wary of the voices you listen to, and the people who give you counsel, but I can confidently say Jake is one of the few people who I allow to speak with authority in my life, because he is truly a man after God’s own heart. That and he is the first to tell me what to/what not to wear on a date lol. I had the pleasure of interviewing him in person; a rarity, as we are never on the same continent for more than a few weeks at…
