The Lost And The Found

There’s this story in the Bible, about a boy who leaves home. It can be found in the book of Luke, in chapter 15, verses 11 through 32. You might have heard it before- or not, but I’m going to tell it to you now!

Current Favourites

Hey there, you! Yes, you, sweet friend! How are you doing? How is your life at the moment?

This is a post I’ve wanted to do since like January haha- I was going to write it in February and call in ‘February Favourites’ but I never got around to it (clearly) so I’m writing it now, and giving it a much less attractive title! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to share some of my current favourite things- from foods to movies to books and more!

Let’s get started!

Life Update + Things I’m Thankful For

Hey, hello and hi there, sweet friend! How are doing today? What’s new with you?

I’m so happy this sunny day because my exams are finally over and today is my last day off school before a couple of weeks off! We get done around noon today so me and my friends are going to get sushi which I’m super excited about! Covid restrictions have relaxed a little here so that we can now all meet up outside, which is great! Other than exams being over, nothing much is new with me since I’ve been so busy with school this past month or so!

5 Books for the Christian Teen Girl

I love to read. I haven’t done an awful lot of it recently, but that doesn’t change the fact that I love to read. From mysteries and murders, to, well, more mysteries and murder, I love a good book!

So, I thought it would be super fun to do a post sharing a few of my favourite books… except not just any books. Not mysteries and murders at least. No, these are better! These are the five books I would recommend to the Christian teen girl or young woman trying to find her identity in Christ in this strange age in which we live. These five books are game-changers! Each one of them taught me something about strengthening my faith and standing firm in my identity. Each one of them inspired me in one way or another. And now, I want to share them with YOU!!

Your Will Be Done

Okay, so here’s a fact about me: I am one of those people who always needs to know the plan.

When I say always, I mean 120% of the time.

Whether it’s a leisurely day in the summer or a busy Saturday afternoon, I need to know the exact movements of every member of my family and the precise timings of the day- virtually to the minute! But, it doesn’t just stop there! If there is no plan, I will make one, and if I can’t make one, I start to stress!

The Joy of The Lord

What makes you happy?

For me, it’s lots of little things. Like the way the sun streams gracefully through the window in the spring. And how bees knock up against your window and then fly away again, reminding you summer is on the way. And the taste of soft-serve ice cream from an ice cream truck somewhere along the British coastline. It’s how my puppy’s face looks all smushed up when he wakes up from a nap. It’s how my cousins and I put frozen yoghurt on our noses in the summer, just because. It’s walking into a coffee shop and smelling the coffee beans. It’s eating lunch every day with my friends and all their different smiles and laughs.

Smoothie Bowl Dump

Hey, hello, sweet friends! How are you doing today! I can’t believe it’s still only Wednesday, how is your week going?

Here in London, spring has definitely arrived- it’s a lot milder outside and the cherry trees are just beginning to blossom! With the change in weather has come a change in other things too- fewer winter clothes, more outdoor activities and different foods- most namely breakfast! The winter just seemed a little too cold for smoothies and refrigerated food first thing in the morning, but now spring is here smoothie bowls are back on the table (literally)!

Follow pt. 2

Simon Peter. Andrew. James. John. Philip. Bartholomew. Thomas. Matthew. James. Thaddeus. Simon. Matthias. 12 ordinary men who gave up their lives; their homes; their everyday-normal at another man’s call to ‘come follow me’. 12 boring, normal, not-extra-special, sinful men who were called to be the closest earthly friends of the extraordinary Jesus Christ.
