{ home for Christmas }

I'm at home in Halifax, my feet on the heater, enjoying the Christmas music coming from the kitchen. Mom and Dad are out getting a tree, I'm about to catch up over coffee with a friend, it's a sweet, chilly season. I've been thinking back over the last three months,...

Hiya friends! I'm currently sitting at a picnic table in the shade, eating a popsicle, listening to Ben Rector, and watching students play softball in the yard next to me. It’s a chill Friday afternoon after a busy week in the DTS! This morning’s lecture wrapped up...

What’s Next?

What’s Next?

It's grad season. Fall is coming. That age old dreaded question of "what's next?" looms overhead. Well, I'm here to announce what's next in the life of Lindsay! As I wrote about in my last post, A YWAM Journey, my DTS impacted me in some pretty major ways. One of...

My YWAM Journey

My YWAM Journey

Hello Friends! I'm back in Halifax now and adjusting to the life at home. It's been great to spend time with family and friends again. I missed the great Halifax vibe 🙂 A year ago, this YWAM experience was a thought, a perhaps. Now it's a memory, it's a paradigm...

Outside of Possible

Healing. It's kind of a weird topic. So many different perspectives, beliefs, and thoughts on it. During the lecture phase of the school I'm in, we had a speaker come and talk to us about healing from a biblical perspective. I had never really experienced healing...
