About me

I could rattle off a whole bunch of attributes and labels here – and it might help you get to know me, or it might completely mislead you!

I think the best way to find out about someone is by how they act and what they say… and since we might not meet in person, that’s an open invitation to read my posts, my thoughts, my ponderings.

Still, if you’re anything like me, you are intensely curious (nosey?) about
the “people behind the blogs” and so I’ll give you a few answers straight up.

I’m female, Christian, work in a hospital and live in two places. I love reading, writing and thinking about life. I love the Bible for the wisdom it shares and the light it sheds on my Saviour. I love running, karate and chocolate (as cliche as that is). History fascinates me, and I enjoy thinking about illness, suffering and the realities of this world in relation to the hope that God gives. I’m passionate about the fact that God is present in the small moments of life as well as the big ones. I truly believe that heroes are born in the tiny decisions rather than the heroic sacrifices, and know that in the end all of us broken, selfish humans are only heroes insomuch as we imitate Christ.

My grandmother died when I was young and I remember playing hopscotch on her tombstone. I also remember the words engraved there, and I pray and hold onto the solid hope that one day those words will be true for me also:

“With her God in glory.”
