"Jesus Feminism" - Pursuing Equality with LOVE
The other day I was waiting for a bus, scrolling absent mindedly through Instagram discovery when I stumbled across this book - "Jesus Feminist" by Sarah Bessey. I was struck and did something my friends and family know I never do - bought it immediately. I...

As Christians, we should not be silent
I haven't posted in so long I'd forgotten how to even get to this website, but here I am. I have been thinking and praying for days about if I should even say anything about this, or what I would say, but as the church stays silent I need to raise my voice....

Piles on Piles on Piles
Forget Marshalls, forget TJ Max, forget even Goodwill.
Second hand souks are where it’s at. Talk about brand names for less, I once
got a Burberry sweater for 30 dirhams. 30 dirhams. That’s less than 5 dollars.

Full Circle
I've gone full circle. The weather, my wardrobe, everything. Once again I'm faced with impending departure and once again I'm faced with empty suitcases to fill with memories. When I came it was summer. The sun beat down furiously with only the gentle Rabat...
