I’ve been thinking about my body a lot today. I’ve been thinking about the way that my body has been changing, and my relationship with my body. Today marks 11 years since I was first sexually violated, so perhaps it makes sense that my body has been on my mind; even though the emotional, spiritual..

So, as Stephanie said, there are a number of things that make me who I am. I am also a researcher. I am a wife, and a daughter, and a sister, and a friend. I believe that a great Hope exists. I feel as though I am a survivor most days, but sometimes this world..

Brian. Usually on July 21st, I write a letter to Andrew.  I’ve written letters of anger and forgiveness and everything in between.  Last year I reflected on how sometimes today looms, and that certainly happened this year.  I’ve been well aware of the fact that today is the 10 year mark of when I was..

Romantic comedies get a lot of shit. So do songs (and other forms of art) that in any way portray an idea of “wrecked girl meets boy and they fall in love and girl gets healed”. I think that they get shit for the wrong reason, though. I think the problem with these movies is..

I don’t usually make posts about healthy living or weight loss or anything of the sort. But I’ve had people comment on a few pictures that I’ve posted recently, and some messaging me that I look thinner. So here it goes. I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I was..

I met you in the upper room Of a house where I slept with the angels From hell and from heaven Some for haunting, some for guarding Each to his own purpose over my trembling skin And I kept my secrets far from your condition And in the explosions they both were just powders In..

It seems important that I use this platform I’ve been given to be honest. And the truth is that I almost didn’t do this speech. The truth is that I have spent the last few weeks feeling like I have been asking too many questions and dealing with too many triggers in the past two..

Today is SlutWalk Toronto. I’m not there for a whole hoax of reasons, but some day I will be. I found myself thinking of the speech I gave at SlutWalk Winnipeg in 2012. There is so much more that I wish I could have said back then, and even more that I’d add to it..

On May 22nd, 2011, I sat in a church in Zimbabwe and became a Christian. And then on May 22nd, 2013, I found out that I was accepted to the World Vision CIDA Internship posting in Zimbabwe.   I’ve been missing Zimbabwe a lot since I got home. Some days, I wouldn’t trade the luxuries..

In September of 2012, I made a speech at SlutWalk Winnipeg. The speech was about a lot of things, not least of all my experiences with victim-blaming. I spoke about hot the perpetrator blamed me (because my “body language was asking for it”). I spoke about how law enforcement blamed me (because “my social media..
