Unicorn #2 – My first production

Its already June and I am not entirely sure where the first half of the year disappeared to… maybe it had to do with my working 12 hour days for the past couple of months, but given half the chance, I would do it all over again tomorrow… I have never been prouder of anything…

{Life with Jesus} Unicorn #1 – My Own Home

So I started this year hunting unicorns in Kruger (you can read about it here:  https://wordpress.com/stats/day/waitinginfaith.wordpress.com ) and came back to Cape Town trusting for more Unicorns and Sparkles; those answers to prayers that seemed almost impossible.  I wanted 2017 to be defined by extraordinary moments with God – I wanted Adventure beyond anything I had…

{Girly Education} Facial for Free (well sort of…)

I got a spa voucher for my birthday (last July) and figured this week was a good one to use it. I usually hate going to spas for anything but a back massage: I dread the feeling of scrutiny and (hopefully imagined) sense of judgement and disapproval from the therapist. Clearly my girly insecurities come…

Boxes and Bubblewrap

My latest adventure: moving into my first Own Place. Excited is an understatement. But, before I can open the front door and walk on in, there is the little business of packing up and moving my life from one address to the next… a week of boxes and bubblewrap later, I have what feels like…

Finding Unicorns in Kruger

I began the year with a week in the Kruger National Park.  Alone.  Yip, I went on holiday all by myself… it was a total first and I loved it.  Here’s why… I finished 2016 exhausted; it had been a long, challenging year and I had spent a large part of it running hard to…

{Girly Education} Going Bananas for Homemade Spa Treatments p

I decided to spend the first week of 2017 in the bush, at my parents’ holiday house in the Sabi/Kruger area. Silence and space. Bliss. Having time on my hands, I decided to try out some homemade spa treatments I had seen on Pinterest… I mean, why not?  And having bought an entire box of…

Stepping out of the Boat

“The righteous will live by faith” – Romans 1:17 I read this verse the other day and something in it made me stop for a moment and ponder the idea: what does it mean to live by faith?  In Christian circles, we throw this term around like confetti, yet, the question remains: what does it…

Loaves & Fish moments

This is something I feel very strongly about and something I am overwhelmingly humbled to have been a part of… this project started as a simple Holy Spirit inspired idea a few years ago – get the kids at my school to knit in the hope of making a couple of blankets for the needy….

This too shall grow…

Last week I made time for a much needed visit to the hair salon; the regrowth had reached shocking lows (we’re talking lift my chin high enough I suddenly became full brunette again).  Being winter, I figured a trim would be in order too.  My hairdresser suggested a trim of *fingers gesturing* 3cm.  My response…

Holiday: Kruger National Park

I start work tomorrow after 3 amazing weeks vacation… and for the first time ever, I am actually kind of ready to face the classroom and kids again.  I’ve rested. And its been good. A friend and I headed North for the winter – well, we got as far as Kruger/ Sabi and figured its…

A little lump of clay

Not many of the thoughts below are my own – credit needs to go to Adam Hellyer for his epic sermon at church last night, and the Holy Spirit for some additions… but this is what I have pondering on today.  Thought I would share (and let’s be honest, any excuse to take photos makes…

What Ifs & Could’ve Been’s…

So my cover picture is a little tongue-in-cheek: today is Youth Day in South Africa and I came face to face with my age.  To be more precise: how very old I suddenly feel! It seems somehow appropriate that I spent  Youth Day in Stellenbosch today – the place I’ll always associate with my own…
