A story worth telling

FINALLY I’m back with a new blog post!! Unfortunately I have been stuck in a creative rut for quite some time which led me to question the purpose of my blog and why I am running it.
Is it because I think I can put some beauty out in this world?
Can I even inspire people?
What makes people want to read my blog when there are millions of blogs to choose between?
Do I really have something to offer?
What makes a blog post worth posting and reading?
And so on my thoughts went. Right until the point I found some truth to hold on to. This truth came to me in the form of a poem.Read More

Travel guide | A day in Copenhagen

Do you have one of those places in your city/country/nearby you feel like you just have to show someone when they visit you? I have for sure. And for me that place is Copenhagen. So when one of my non-Danish friends visited I took her to Copenhagen and where I took her, I want to take you as well. So if you are going to Copenhagen soon be sure to see some of these places yourself. Some of the places are classics and over-touristy, others are small, hidden gems located outside of the regular tourist spots. So here are my recommendations:

Join me for #MLL12DAYS !

Throughout my life I have learned the importance of words. How much death words can bring. And how much life. It all depends on how we use them. I have had many people-friends, family, teachers, mentors, pastors, bloggers-speak words over my life. Words that were full of life that influenced me in ways they will never know. And when I stop for a second and think about it that’s the kind of person I want to be. A person who uses her words to bring life and love. Many practical ways exists to be this person. One of them is through the organization More Love Letters and their campaign #MLL12DAYS.  I am beyond excited to be a part of their campaign again this year. It’s a way to show up this season and help people in need by sending love-filled handwritten notes. During December 4th-15th, a letter request will be published every day. Notes will be written and sent off to be bundled up into a (hopefully HUGE) stack for the individual to receive.
Last year (see post here) was a blast so this is something I have been looking forward to for a long time.

The unicorn toast | A healthy snack DIY

Eating the same snacks over and over again can quickly become soo boring and unappetizing so why not add a little twist to a regular, plain toast and turn it into a magical unicorn toast?! That’s exactly what I did and I love the results so much I wanted to share what I did with you’all! Cannot believe I missed out on it when the unicorn toast first appeared and went viral earlier this year (…like in Spring, duuh, read why here and here).

The ‘No’vember challenge

So excited November is here and it’s time to dive full on into sweater weather season, hot chocolate and all things fuzzy and cozy. As soon as I heard about the ‘No’vember challenge I knew I wanted to be a part of it too.
In order to say yes to the things that are good for us and align our priorities with God we have to say no to other things and that is exactly what this challenge is about. Making a list of things you are saying no to and writing the things you want to say yes to instead. There really is something powerful in writing things down and holding yourself accountable by doing that instead of just thinking about it!

What things are you saying no to this month?

Challenge introduced to me in this post from Horacio Printing.

What living in Thailand for 2 months was really like…

God calls us to go. To go into all the nations (Matthew 28). And this summer God called me to Thailand for 2 months. The time in Thailand was a part of the the last phase of the DTS called outreach.

So what did I do in Thailand you might wonder?

First we stayed in Bangkok for a couple days for orientation where we learned a lot about the culture and belief of this country known as “the land of smiles”. A country that is also known for the line “to be Thai is to be buddhist”. To get to know this country we went to downtown Bangkok and visited temple after temple. Not that we had to search to find them, they were everywhere.
