Keilah

Keilah is just your average young adult who laughs, smiles, and cries over homework. She knows she's called to something in her life, and is currently living her university life searching for the answer. The confusion, chaos, and hurt in the world constantly pushes her to do more than just watch from the sidelines. She strives to be 'real,' sometimes gets lost in the dark, but is always searching for the light.

Love in the Loneliness

Being lonely can be a dark place. It can sometimes feel like a void that you want to escape from. You run around, searching for an exit—a piece of light—but instead the void just continues to pull you deeper. You crave for someone to help you. To save you. But …

The Probability of a Human Connection

Once a week, I volunteer at an elementary after-school program that targets vulnerable at-risk kids. Once I week, I have to take a bus from my university to the elementary school. Once a week, I ride that bus through Hastings Street–the “Skid Row” of Vancouver. And (at least) once a …

If you’ve ever taken swimming lessons, then you’ll know that being able to float is one of the first things that the instructor shows you. I vividly remember floating in the shallow instruction pool, with my teacher telling me “If you panic, just float. Then you’ll be fine.” Floating was thought of …

The Love of a Father

The Breaking of Dawn into Beautiful

Not going to lie. This past half-year had been hard. I was literally a ticking time bomb. With the stress of school, of family, of work, of the future, and of expectations, I wasn’t questioning if I would break–but rather when. So when 2 suicides–each one month apart from each other–hit me, my …

The Question

When helping out at Preschool Sunday school, you see and hear the weirdest things. This weekend was particularly unique. With kids running into walls on purpose while laughing about being invincible, to little 3-year-old boys telling girls they like them because their cute, there’s always something to laugh about. One …

Look Up

The city. Bright lights. City noise. It’s like another world, sparkling like a diamond in the dark of the night. I remember seeing downtown from afar during one of these nights, seeing how beautiful it was. But then I looked up. Funny how our eyes get drawn to the city …

What’s the Plan?

What’s my purpose? I think we’ve all asked the same question at least once or twice. Lately, I’ve been asking myself too often to count. “Why am I here? What was I made for? What do you want from my life?” I think about these questions, then shut them out because it …
