CODE OF TWINS

There are three questions that I always get asked when people find out I’m a twin: 1. What does it feel like to have a twin? 2. Can you feel what your twin is feeling? Or think what she’s thinking? 3. Is it fun to have a twin? I don’t know how my...

WHEN JESUS TOLD ME TO SIN NO MORE

Three years and five days ago, when the SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) had ruled that way, I would have been one of the many people who would be celebrating. To show my love and support to the LGBT community, I would add the rainbow filter on my social...

MADE OBSCURE TO SURRENDER

I was the proverbial popular guy in high school during my time. Not because of my looks, but because of what I used to do. I had 2 military designations in our school’s Cadette Advanced Training as: Chief Training and Operations Officer and 1st Battalion Executive...

BELOVED BRIDE

I came from a broken family.  My father and mother decided to separate when I was five years old. Growing up, I can describe myself as someone who was very insecure. I would always aim to have high grades and top the class (in which, I often succeeded) to mask the...

A DANGEROUS LOVE

I am a Christian Muslim woman.  There is no other way to say it.  It is difficult to describe what it’s like. Believing Jesus is dangerous for many of us in the Middle East. I am a believer but if you were to meet me and follow me around for a day you probably...

EGOISTIC AND CHOSEN

I was an insecure, self-centered, control freak party girl who felt unloved by my family. My mother would call me fat, untalented and flat-nosed. I felt like she’s always pointing out what was wrong with me, which caused me to feel unwanted and unloved.  My older...

SUPER HEROES AND BARBIE DOLLS

As a child, I always hung out with my two brothers. Being the youngest and only daughter in our family, I didn’t have anyone else to play with since my parents were always away.  I was not taught how to act girly, and my brothers became my role models.  I ended up...

THERE IS A HOPE

“In Him (Jesus Christ) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.” (Ephesians1:7-8, NIV) My childhood, while no utopia, was normal in the sense...

GOD’S MYSTERIOUS AND PERFECT TIMING

I never belonged to a cult, but was a product of the 60’s counter culture, and as such was a hedonistic, narcissistic, existentialist overly impressed by my grasp and understanding of the meaninglessness of life. Sartre, Camus, were to me the gods of knowledge....

MONEY CAN’T BUY YOU LOVE

I would like to share with you how I came into this world, and to a family where I was never allowed to talk about my problems, for fear of being beaten. Children should be seen and not heard, was a family motto of ours.  My stepfather, and other relatives began...
