Lifestyle and Wedding Photographer, and Blogger. I work at Bethel International Church in Vancouver as their Graphic Designer and Communications Assistant, and I am also a youth leader there.
FINALLY finishing up my B.A. in Counselling at Summit Pacific College. I have served as a youth leader for a total of 8 years (at Broadway Church and then Bethel). As well, I was a counselling intern for a summer and worked as a conflict resolution counsellor for a year.
I became a Christian when…
I was a kid. I grew up in a Christian home and went to Christian schools growing up, but didn't accept Jesus into my life as my personal Saviour until I was 9 (or maybe 10. It's been a while!)
A few of my favourite things...
My dog, writing, peppermint tea, boy bands, fresh flowers, napping and brown paper packages tied up in string.
What I would say to my teenage self:
“Stop stressing out. Sure, life is a bit crazy and you feel a little lost - but it's going to be okay. Stop stressing and start relying. God knows what's going to happen next - this isn't his first rodeo, so put your trust in him. It'll all work out in the end and you'll roll your eyes at yourself 10 years from now. (And stop cutting your own bangs...)”
A Bible verse I love:
“Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.”
