DECLARATION

I do a lot of interviews as “Miss BC”. People often ask me if I am going to spend the next precious 12 months with my title promoting “world peace”? My answer: I declare war! To this I often new many puzzled looks, confused faces and the occasional chuckle. No one really knows how to respond….

The “S” word

My friend calls it the “S” word. Others call it loneliness… I call it being exactly where I need to be right now. I’ve been on my own for a while now… which is strange for me because up until the last 2 years of my life I had always been in a serious relationship,…

Proverbs 31

I love inspirational quotes! Yesterday I was looking to find some beautiful and inspiring quotes about women. As I searched this is what I found: Ah, women.  They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.  ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche They call it PMS because Mad Cow Disease was already taken.  ~Author Unknown Women dress…

It was a busy day much like any other for me. As soon as I got my shift at work ended I rushed out to brave Vancouver highways at rush hour as I made my way out to the BC Ferries Twassassen Ferry Terminal. I arrived with an hour to spare and was feeling good…

The neighbourhood was clean and “family orientated”- it could easily have been any street in Langley. Inside this “house” were at least 30-50…

From there…to Here.

In just over a week I will be celebrating my 22nd birthday. The last few days I have been reflecting over this life journey I have been on, remembering the places I have been and ways that God has revealed Himself to me. I have not always been so passionate about my convictions. Although I…

“Just around the Block” as told by Miss Fraser Valley

Last night I took seven of the other Miss BC contestants with me to serve at Nightshift street ministries. Many of the girls later expressed that it was a “life altering night”. This makes me so excited to see because “The Year of Change” is not just about transforming our communities and our world but…

Craiglist the “Wal-Mart” of online child sex trafficking?

Love knows no bounds

This is a Love Revolution and all are invited to take part. Actions speak louder than words and faith without deeds is dead- so we are going outside of our comfort zone to love all people- everywhere. This is a love that is counter cultural. This is a love that has the power to transform….
