There must be something more than this. Have you ever thought that to yourself? Have you ever thought that there must be something… anything, more than this half-hearted life you’re existing in? Something more exciting than the mundane 9-to-5 routine that you follow, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year? Something more adventurous thanContinue reading “A Life-Giving Kind of Life”
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!

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. What IContinue reading “Follow pt. 2”
Hey there, sweet friend! How are you doing today? How has your week gotten off to a start? Last week I had the week off school and it’s never very fun going back to school after a break, but here we are! One upside to the misery that is school is the weather- it’s beenContinue reading “Weekly Inspo + Art Dump”
Lots of things are loud. Like fire drills. Like train stations. The city. Crowded buses. Airports. Motorways. Lunchbreak at school. And life.
