As as the worship team lead us, I closed my eyes to keep the tears from escaping my fortified walls. All I wanted was to not be around anyone. I wanted to eradicate all forms of relationships. I wanted to become invisible to everyone. I didn't want anyone to see that I had pieces of… Continue reading Returning back to the potter
I don't mind if your jeans are that little bit tighter. I don't mind if you have broken personal records for how quickly you finish a bag of chips.

I realise that if this was true, I would be facing a life with a lot… Continue reading You want me to… love myself?!
I could have written this post over a million times, and I still would never be completely satisfied that my words really conveyed my feelings on this topic. The topic of the same-sex marriage plebiscite isn't just as simple as the Yes/No we are asked to respond to - there are layers, rebuttals, and valid… Continue reading Bring it back to LOVE
