Speaking in two places at once!

Thanks to pre-recording my messages, I was able to speak at two churches today! (Thanks technology!) The first was at Harcourt Memorial United Church in Guelph, Ontario, for their Affirming Sunday Service! With everything going on, it felt most appropriate to share about the challenge of balancing both grief & joy. My message is aboutContinue reading “Speaking in two places at once!”

Seasons of change.

Last week our little house on 221st street sold. While on a bike ride soon after, it hit me how many big seasons have happened these last few years! Pets come and gone, two kids, a pandemic, two book deals, and many more ups and downs. Whoa. I had so much fun staying up lateContinue reading “Seasons of change.”

Being asked to leave the table.

(Trigger warning: LGBTQ Christian voices being silenced) In September, I was invited to speak at a Christian conference out of Vancouver. I was really excited, because they wanted to include LGBTQ Christian voices, and I love speaking about such things! Their conference is in January 2021, and due to Covid, all virtual. Because of that,Continue reading “Being asked to leave the table.”

Rain on me.

Covid-fatigue is hitting everyone. I feel it all around me. This has been hard, hasn’t it friends? Lately I have tried to allow this discomfort and fear and anxiety dust off the buried treasures within myself. I think there are extremely important lessons about life, and ourselves, that we can only learn in these typesContinue reading “Rain on me.”

A new day is coming.

I know, I know – I’m Canadian… BUT that doesn’t mean I wasn’t dancing in my kitchen at the Biden/Harris victory announcement yesterday!! Us Canadians are used to constantly living America-adjacent, and while political decisions don’t DIRECTLY affect us, they definitely affect us down the line. And even though I’m not American, I love aContinue reading “A new day is coming.”
