Every cold, frosty morning of the first two weeks of January seemed to start with sunshine. It was a rare Vancouver-winter treat that made me fall more in love with winter. Recently, we’ve had an incredible fog settle on the valley. It’s thick and dark and magical and makes me feel like I’m living in a movie.

It feels fitting to blog about the Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. on the actual Martin Luther King, Jr. day. I’m going to be honest and tell you I knew only 2 things about MLK up until last month. He fought for civil rights and he was assassinated. I don’t know how I went 22 years without learning more about this incredible man of God but it’s a little embarrassing. I’ll blame my Canadian heritage (MLK Jr. Day isn’t recognized here) and my age (the civil rights movement was before my time) — but wow, I want everyone to read this book.

I was humbled by a need to ask for forgiveness last year. It was a painful lesson, one I published on my blog and re-published on campusfire. In the months following, God gave the opportunity to be on the opposite side of a gift called “forgiveness.” I learned how to forgive for the first time.

Michelle and Paul met through a young adults group at our church almost 4 years ago. Paul had recently moved to the area and decided to attend an event at the church for the first time. It just so happened that evening, Michelle was serving as a greeter. Her face was the first Paul saw and for some reason, he decided to stick around. ;) They dated for 8 months and were married 2 years ago, this past November. I admire Michelle & Paul’s joy and servant-hearts. They are kind, inviting people, faithful and generous with all God has given them. Michelle is due with their first baby in March and I enjoyed capturing such an exciting time in their lives. God has wonderful plans!
