http://jeffbethke.com/a-few-thoughts-on-women-men-porn-sexual-assault I don’t entirely agree with Jefferson Bethke’s position on sex and pornography, but I do appreciate the rest of this video. In particular, I think he raises a great point about the fact that it is oppressive and damaging when people talk about rape victims as “someone’s daughter” or “someone’s sister”; it takes away..

A friend recently posted an article titled “Modesty, Beauty and Men.  What Should We Care?”. Here are some of my thoughts on the article: Unfortunately, I find this article really problematic in a lot of ways. I think it’s definitely a very conservative article that leaves out (what most people now accept as fact) that..

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..

Sometimes I feel like I am basically a walking contraction.

Name: Dr. Paul Thistle How I know/heard about them: Dr. Thistle hosted the team from Booth University College when some of us came to Zimbabwe in 2011. It is because of his willingness to host us at Howard Hospital that I went to the Salvation Army church on May 24th, 2011 and became a Christian…

Every Monday morning, the World Vision staff gathers for an hour of devotions. Sometimes, I have a hard time with preaching here in Zimbabwe; I tend to have progressive beliefs even in Canada, which certainly means that in the context of Zimbabwe, I might not agree with everything. But two Monday’s ago, I really found..

Hello friends, I am over half done my time in Zimbabwe at this point, and have been asked by a few people how they can be praying for me. I do have a section on my blog called “prayer requests”, but this is a little bit more specific. -A coworker of mine in Nkayi has..

This song is a little heavier than I usually would go for, but it is still one of my favorites. It ruined me the first time I actually heard and listened to it, and it beyond ruined me when I first got back to Zimbabwe a month ago. It’s a song that demands being turned..

I am in Toronto. After saying bye to my mom, I was struggling with feeling alone.  Then I look over at the person on the plane beside me and see that he has written something in his notebook, and it basically was some arrangement consisting of “Jesus” and “security”.  I’ve had a lot of comments..
