Lessons from 10 Years of Writing / Blogging

November 2, 2015

13

Why am I not blogging more? This is a question I have asked myself several times over the last few months. I know the answer. It is a good answer. But it still makes me sad. For the longest time, my blog used to have the following text in big font: “The answers to life […]

What My Facebook Friends Don’t Know About Me

August 16, 2015

5

I have a toxic relationship with Facebook. It is the bane of my existence. I go off it several times a year and for weeks on end. But I always come back. What I know is, the time off from Facebook, finds me happier and more productive. I feel proud of myself as I am […]

The Best Religion in the World

December 14, 2014

7

Most people know the best religion in the world: THEIR’S! To me, most religions seem like competitors in a high-stakes championship.

I spent the last week in the small, remote village of El Progresso in El Salvador. I was part of an 8-member team from Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago, that went to work on a school project in this village in the mountains, untouched by Facebook or the internet. Working at this school came close […]

My Favourite 20 Minutes of the Day

September 16, 2010

20

In an ideal world we would all have time to reflect – a few minutes for ourselves away from the hullabuloo of daily lives. But in the real world, we have to make time for ourselves. When there’s so little time for ourselves, where is the time to invest in relationships…get to know your spouse, […]
