It’s been a nice quiet week this week ~
My eBay auctions ended – so I gave another small piece towards Mercy House ..
Recently I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Steph Wheeler – an Aussie girl who lives in Cambodia and absolutely loves it – and writing about it for the prettiest, best magazine around: Enhance.
Well, it arrived in the mail last week, all nicely graphic-ed and printed. And as usual it took me a good few days to build up the courage to look at it. It’s always so final you know? Once the words are printed, there’s no making changes! (one of the many bonuses of blogging – you can make changes whenever you like 🙂 )

So this week a magazine arrived in my mail box with an article I wrote on the cover. What a buzz! That’s a first for me – writing a feature/cover story – and I’m a little nervous about it.. in fact, I’m very nervous.. feeling the pressure you could say.. it’s a little late to do anything about it, but still..
It was a wonderful experience interviewing Erica and sharing her amazing story with Enhance readers. I love writing for Enhance, almost as much as I love reading Enhance.. reading Enhance is much less nerve wracking!
Erica is beautifully honest about her journey, including her battle with an eating disorder, I really respect her for that. Not an easy subject to be open and honest about. Thanks for trusting me with your words and your story Erica!
Earlier this week, she shared her thoughts on her blog Girl With A Satchel about how she felt about being on the cover of a magazine (instead of being the one writing about the magazine).. definitely check it out!
An interesting thought has been floating around my mind recently. I’ve been noticing that God seems to be more ‘pro’ than ‘anti’. It’s not a debate about whether or not He wants us to be active – He does. Rather, my questioning is on our position/method. What if God is more ‘pro’ freedom than He is ‘anti’ captivity? Or more ‘pro’ empowerment than ‘anti’ demoralisation? Basically the standards are the same but the position has changed. Continue reading

After securing an interview with Melinda Tankard Reist, I was thrilled. You know when there’s someone you really respect, who expresses everything you’re thinking, someone you really want to meet one day? Well for me, that was Melinda Tankard Reist. Continue reading
Happy New Year to all of you! What will you keep with you from 2010? For me, 2010 has been a good year; a year of growth and living-outside-my-comfort-zone. I am finishing the year on a note of satisfaction and anticipation for 2011.
