I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.
I am a Third Culture Kid. I am ethnically American but have grown up in another country most of my life. I am a bridge between cultures and languages, not belonging to either side. A Third Culture Kid is by definition, “ a person who spends a significant part of his or her first eighteen years… Continue reading Truth4TCKs: Why TCKs Are Important + ANNOUNCEMENT
Languages are my love language. I know that sounds redundant, but it is true. I adore languages. There is something inherently special about them. Perhaps it is the way each language sounds. One is more efficient, one is strong, one is melodious. One sings with the warmth of the Mediterranean sun. One is matter-of-fact and… Continue reading An Ode to Languages
I’m Close to My Family For as long as I can remember, my mother has been my best friend. I might have not always called her that, but she has always been the one who knew me best, who loved me enough to tell me when I was wrong, who took joy in the things… Continue reading Truth4TCKs: Family is Home

Indulging myself in little things that didn’t seem important. They felt good because they were a way to escape… Continue reading Wretches in the Midst of Sanctification

I am tired, frustrated, and restless. I guess this year was not what any of us expected. I know that’s an understatement. I just – feel so tired. Physically, spiritually and mentally. I don’t feel peace. However, God’s truth and love triumph over my feelings. I know that. Then why can’t I bring myself to… Continue reading Peace by Storm

I had big plans. Then I realized that school was coming up. What had started as… Continue reading My Newest Endeavor: Organization and Productivity
