A couple of weeks ago I had an amazing experience with a group of students. A bunch of us have been studying prayer and what that means practically in our lives. After school one day, we decided to do a prayer walk through the hallways and on all three floors of our K-12 school. WeContinue reading “Prayer Walk”
Hooray, it’s almost here! We have approved our spring issue proof and our magazines are heading into printing and binding this week! We spent countless hours working on our spring magazine in the past couple of months. From content writing, to photo shoots, to layout design, to interviews, it’s all been put together and weContinue reading “Sequoia Spring Issue Launch Party”
If you haven’t heard yet, our first issue of Sequoia magazine is hot off the press and copies are now available for purchase, just in time for Christmas! In just a few days we’ve sold more than half our print run, so if you’d like to get a copy before they’re all gone, head overContinue reading “Sequoia Magazine is Hot Off the Press!”
We’re excited to announce that Sequoia’s first issue will be a printed magazine! Although it was originally only supposed to be a digital magazine, the wheels got into motion after hours spent in InDesign working on the layout this past month. It’s a bit of a risk to commit to print this early on, butContinue reading “December Issue: now available for pre-order”
The other day was amazing, a day spent with my Mom, making one of my favourite desserts from childhood. The smell of this dessert as it’s being made doesn’t just make my mouth water – it brings back memories, many of them with my Grandma or my cousins as we made short work of theContinue reading “Pie Recipe Sneak Peek”
My girls are hilarious. I’m learning more and more about how important it is to have fun with them and how important it is to “let down my hair.” If you knew me, you might think “letting down my hair” comes naturally – but it doesn’t always, especially with my girls.
Today I was blessed. I did something that I really value, but rarely find the time to do. As we drove up to the familiar home, I wondered how I could bless and be a blessing to my friend. Friend doesn’t seem like quite the right word – Auntie? Grandma? – someone that I deeplyContinue reading “Nettie Goertzen”
Mornings have become a gift to me. I’m not sure when that started, because I would not have always said that. I still love a good sleep-in; there really is nothing like those rare times of lying in bed, knowing that I don’t have to get up for anything.
The first week of September was stressful. I don’t know how many of your houses have been affected by the dry summer, but ours has. Seven years ago we were hit hard in regards to our, at that time, brand new house. We poured thousands and thousands of dollars into our basement… steel beams installed,Continue reading “It’s a new day dawning”
Today as I was walking to pick my daughter up from a school event, I marvelled at the place God has brought me from. I noticed the cooler autumn air, the leaves crunching under my feet, the world around me changing colour, the neighbour that had painted his house – my eyes were wide openContinue reading “On Fear”
