3 Things I’ve Learned From Reading the Entire Bible

“I think we need to do a Bible boot camp for you.” When my friend suggested this, I said no. Then I said maybe. This was last spring. At the time, I was overwhelmed with Christian stuff. Monday to Friday I worked for a Christian company. Sunday morning I went to church. Wednesday night I attended women’s Bible study. Everywhere in between, I hung out … Continue reading 3 Things I’ve Learned From Reading the Entire Bible

Savvy & Rachel’s Top 10 Christmas Traditions

It’s the time of the year again when age-old family traditions come out and when innovative traditions are created. Our thoughts and beliefs are played out in action, with the embracing of rituals and symbolism. This is according to the Webster dictionary, where tradition is “the inherited, established, or customary pattern, thought, action, or behaviour”. These are the rituals that I followed religiously as a kid. However, … Continue reading Savvy & Rachel’s Top 10 Christmas Traditions

When Savvy Attempts to Waste Less

Sustainability is the new buzz-word for our time. (just in case you don’t believe, read about how our planet is going to be a hothouse , how to eat sustainably, musings from New York of a green christmas, and how the UN is involved.)

Why God Lets Me Feel Lonely

If on a lazy Sunday afternoon, you happen to be at a wine cellar in suburban Florida, sharing a cheese platter with your friends on the open-air patio, you may see a twentysomething girl hunkered in the corner by herself, slurping on bottomless mimosas and scribbling things down in her OfficeMax notebook. Psst…that’s me. For your information, I have an abundance of friends and an … Continue reading Why God Lets Me Feel Lonely

Jesus Christ and Pumpkin Spice

September When I clock into my shift at the coffeeshop, I spy a small bottle under the counter: Pumpkin Spice syrup. I swivel 360 degrees, spotting the tucked-away bag of pumpkin spice frappé powder, the pumpkin spice candles, pumpkin spice drizzle… Call me basic. But I have never felt such pure excitement before in my life. When the coffeeshop stocks up on pumpkin spice, that … Continue reading Jesus Christ and Pumpkin Spice
