The Road

“The Road goes ever on and on…” These words from J.R.R. Tolkien’s imagination have been running through my own mind lately. After all, it’s hard NOT to contemplate the twists and turns of life’s road while in a season of such transition and change! The concept of a journey or an adventure have settled in my […]

Ellie and Kyle in California!

When Ellie and Kyle met, they turned each other’s world upside down. Both were students at Biola University in California, where their fun personalities and mutual love for reading sparked a romance that would also be a rollercoaster ride! Time and time again one of them would make up their mind to be with the other, only to […]

Cheesecake and Character

Sometimes we want what we shouldn’t have and ignore what we need. To put it simply, sometimes we reach for the CHEESECAKE and ignore the CARROTS! More often than sometimes we desperately snatch at money, power, and the approval of others while allowing the real treasure to sit in decay. I believe that personal character falls into this category. […]

Vanitas

The Latin noun meaning “emptiness”, thus refering in this context to the view of fleeting earthly life and the worthless nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.” I have always been intrigued by the Vanitas style of art. These still-life paintings always seem to induce a gloomy contemplation of life and death, reminding the viewer […]

Cultivating Peace

It was the summer of 2012. I had just returned to my home in Mongolia after a miserable nine months of living in the States. It had been the biggest move of my life, and I was ANYTHING but prepared for the stifling heat and humidity of Florida! My favorite spot was in front of the […]
