How My Hair Defines Me

I have another movie recommendation for you to watch on Netflix and that is Nappily Ever After. It’s your basic chick-flick where your girl slowly falls in love with her hair. It has all of the clichés of having a professional job, being wealthy, and cute love interests with a few added bonuses. However, I bring up this movie as a starting point for a conversation: … Continue reading How My Hair Defines Me

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.) With our zero-wasting, vegan recipes, and ethical fashion, it’s the new lifestyle that all of the cool kids are living; arguably for good … Continue reading When Savvy Attempts to Waste Less

What I’ve Learned From My Friendship With Savvy

“Wait. WHAT?” I nearly spit out my coffee. Savvy’s pixelated face nods at me over Skype. “I blogged about it,” she says. “I DIDN’T KNOW THIS…which post?” I ask. “The one about #MeToo,” Savvy says. “It was called—” But my mind is already traveling back, way back, way before the #MeToo movement, like three years back… When I first met Savvy, I was like, oh, … Continue reading What I’ve Learned From My Friendship With Savvy

Why I Didn’t Want To Be Friends With Rachel

So funny story, but I never wanted to be friends with Rachel. (Yes, that’s right, blog-Rachel). (Actually, I don’t know if I told you this, Rachel. Please let me know if I can tell this story when reading this draft). I have a vivid image of seeing this tall girl with beautiful long hair who illuminated with chill and confident vibes in a crowd of … Continue reading Why I Didn’t Want To Be Friends With Rachel

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

Why Discipleship Weirds Me Out

I like to think I’ve encountered my fair share of quirky Christian trends. 24-hour prayer sessions. Pre-wedding lingerie parties. Haunted houses that bring people to Jesus (no, seriously, that’s a thing). But one of the many buzzwords that has stumped me is discipleship. “Discipleship is teaching biblical precepts, while modeling and guiding others toward living righteously as followers of Jesus Christ. This should be a … Continue reading Why Discipleship Weirds Me Out
