  • The lessons never stop

    Have you ever noticed the divide between what you think and what you feel?

  • What’s holding us back?

    When my parents divorced, we spent the first 9 months living at my auntie's house while my mum was trying to find a new place for us. On the back of the bathroom door there was a quote by Charles Swindoll that have helped shape my life. It said:

  • 25 lessons in 25 years

    Recently I turned 26 and my aunty challenged me to write 25 things I’ve learnt so far. I feel like I’m always reflecting on things, however I found this to be an incredibly life giving experience nonetheless.

  • Our heart’s desires

    I have often questioned what it is that we most desire as humans.

  • Knowing your ‘why’

    Recently I was talking with my brother-in-law about his experience in positions of leadership.

  • Where to now? Finding your way when you don’t know what’s next

    As a pastor and youth worker I’ve spent a significant amount of my time talking to people about purpose, career and what they want to do with their lives. Although I believe that it is important to pray and listen to God for direction, I also think God gives us wisdom, passion and initiative to choose our own future.

  • The Power of Media   

    Last year a friend of mine started a business which sold products through marketing on Instagram and Facebook. With a fair bit of research, the right product and some hard work his business took off in a very short amount of time.

  • Let’s become known for what we are for

    A couple of weeks ago I went with a bunch of mates to a bar in downtown Auckland. I saw one of the teachers from the school I do youth work in and in a surprised voice she said “What are you doing here? I thought this would be the last place I’d ever see you.”

  • The missing piece

    I have often questioned what it is that we most desire as humans. So I often ask the young people I work with “What do you want most out of life?” Answers have included; fame, wealth, status, sex, making a difference and many more. But the most common thing that is said, which everything boils down to, is that people want to be happy.

  • The great adventure

    Recently I have been listening to a lot of audiobooks while I drive. One of my new favourite authors is a guy called Bob Goff who writes Love does and Everybody, always.
