On the Biological Binary

Photo by Joël de Vriend As some of you may know, I began college in the STEM field. Before God called me to study arts and architecture, I was a biochemistry major for two years. Even before realizing I was non-binary, I have always been fascinated by sexual dimorphism and variations upon it in a … Continue reading On the Biological Binary

Going Green: A Journey to Zero Waste Minimalism

Photo by Teemu Paananen It's been about half a year since I decided to adopt a minimalist approach to living, and a third of a year since I have resolved to reduce my environmental impact. Of course, living well and living lightly have been important to me before. You know the core memories in the … Continue reading Going Green: A Journey to Zero Waste Minimalism

Come Out! A Story of Deliverance

Photo by Priscilla Du Preez When I woke up on Sunday, I knew this day held great hope for me. Ever since coming out as non-binary and pansexual, the spiritual warfare in my life has been real. By God's grace and provision, I have been just getting by. But I knew that this wasn't all … Continue reading Come Out! A Story of Deliverance

COMING OUT: “God, Could You Be This Good?”

Photo by Mike Schrengohst TL;DR - God is real. He loves you. He wants the best for you. No exceptions. I "come out," and into the open: not in spite of my faith, but because of it. But first, a little about me. My name is Gloria. I am a first generation Chinese American, assigned … Continue reading COMING OUT: “God, Could You Be This Good?”

Our Daily Bread (#NEDAwareness)

CW: disordered eating, anorexia, relapse, recovery Photo by Mike Kenneally They say that relapse is part of recovery, but I thought my anorexia was a thing of the past. Overcome last year, for good. Until I realized, over the course of several days, that I had begun eating much less than normal. Skipping the first … Continue reading Our Daily Bread (#NEDAwareness)

Joining the Club (Starting with a Phone Case)

Photo by Elizabeth Lies Yup. It's 2019, and the oceans aren't going to clean themselves. When God gave man dominion over the earth, we were meant to rule over it with stewardship and wisdom. Not to exploit its resources, or each other. Although we are called to be in this world, but not of this … Continue reading Joining the Club (Starting with a Phone Case)

WHY Declutter? — Treasures in Heaven

Entropy works against us consistently, creating disorder and chaos. That's the way of the universe now (after the Fall).

Nobody actually wants clutter. We don't set our new year's resolution to live a more cluttered life.

However, if we're not intentional about what we allow to remain in our life, we end up with unintentional objects, relationships, and achievements.

And who wants that? It's human nature to desire a meaningful life.

It's easy to be fooled, though. Worldly possessions can't fill the void within our hearts, which desire and long for more.

Because things are just things -- neither good nor bad. They can make us happy for a while, but that kind of happiness never lasts.

I’m Becoming a Minimalist!

Photo by Jackson Douglas Living well. What does that mean to you? Does it fit a particular aesthetic, income level, or location? Does a good life involve a change in mindset? If so, is it hard to do? Just like every other consumer in America, I've bought into the promise that better life is just a … Continue reading I’m Becoming a Minimalist!

Christmas 2018 in Taos, New Mexico

One of the great things about living in the States again is that we can slowly begin exploring the states we haven't been to yet. America is as large as it is diverse, and my friends tell me that regional stereotypes do hold some truth in them yet. Anyway, during this vacation, I did not … Continue reading Christmas 2018 in Taos, New Mexico
