In October 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and by December 2017, we learned that the cancer had spread to my liver, putting me at stage 4. I recently went live on Facebook to share my story (a year later) and let everyone know that despite my diagnosis, I’m living my life like it’s golden. I am determined to live until I die and it’s the grace of God that is seeing me through all of it. I had a lot of fear around going public with this information,

Some years ago, during my inter-provincial travels between Montreal and Toronto, I found myself declaring that I would like to be baptized. At the time, I was already deep in regular Bible study, devotion and talking to God, so I thought that this would happen sooner rather than later, but it actually took some time for me to journey to this point. Even though I already had a faithful practice, I didn’t feel like it was enough to be baptized but my journey to baptism taught me 2 things: You

Since I have allowed myself to feel my pain, fears and doubts, I can’t believe it’s been about a week and I’m still processing a lot of my emotions. In the past, within a day, I’m over it, but if you’re following from last weeks Morning Café, we know that I’m human and getting over certain things so quickly is not truth. In today’s video, I talk about holding down emotions and clinging to whatever makes us feel better in the moment, otherwise known as our training wheels. But eventually,

Happy New Month! As we officially embark on month number five of 2017, it’s hard to believe that we’re already, almost halfway through the year! Despite my circumstances, I would say I’m handling things extremely well and remaining faithful that my ‘someday’ will be coming soon. My new coffee mug (seen above) has been a big help! It has definitely been a year for transition. I’m making it a habit to do things I’ve never done, in an effort to live a life I’ve never lived. It has certainly caused

The scriptures say that faith without works is dead. So you could have all the faith in the world, but if you’re not taking action, your faith will get you no where. Unfortunately, for many of us, taking action is much easier said than done. We think a lot about the things we want to do, but we let excuses or fear or guilt get in the way and there goes our motivation.

When we’re growing up, we engage in a lot of activity that may be appropriate during our childhood, but it tends to hold us back as adults. If you are trying to get to the next level of your life and finding it a challenge, maybe it’s time to explore the things you are doing that no longer serve you. If you’re getting caught up in all the wrong kinds of relationships, if you find that you never have enough money, if you encounter friends who continue to stab you

Nobody else is going to believe in you the way you do. Of course you will have friends and family who support you and even proclaim to believe in you, but you want to make it so that even when their faith begins to waiver, yours is still standing strong. Your beliefs, your attitude and what you feel and think about yourself should be the source from which you draw your motivation, not your condemnation. Believing in yourself is the one thing that will hold strong even if you see

When you’re going through a hard time and facing many challenges, sometimes the best thing you can do is, look forward. Instead of wallowing in the present moment and getting upset about your circumstances, look as far ahead as possible into the future until you can see the silver lining.
