A Little About Me

I’ll skip the boring bio and share some interesting facts. I’m curious. I’m not really organized when it comes to physical things, but I value relationships and have systems in place in all social media, e-mail and messenger apps to keep in touch with people. I grew up in South Africa and English is my second language. I got married after knowing my husband only four months. For our honeymoon we moved to another country 😉 We’ve been married for almost six years.

I have two boys and gave birth in a rural hospital in Asia. We’re raising them in the middle of a small Buddhist community. Most days I’m surprised how much I enjoy being a mom.

I see God in everything. Feel closest to Him when I’m in nature or listening to worship music. I really found Jesus when I came to the end of myself during a really difficult season overseas.

I graduated as a Physiotherapist, but I don’t really care what job I’m doing as long as I’m able to help someone (and get to learn something new). For now being a SAHM fits that criteria. In my free time I’m looking for ways to connect with and encourage other women online. I ended up serving on one of the social media teams over at Velvet Ashes and I love it!

Happiness is a good book and a cup of coffee. I love puzzles, mysteries, crosswords and playing point and click adventure games.

The Story Behind Reporter of Hope

Overwhelmed with all the bad news and negative publicity in the world. I started this blog in 2013 with the hope of sharing the ‘good news’ and amazing stories and testimonies instead.

I’m always looking for hope as I keep on searching after the heart of the One who can work all things for our good and His glory.

I love to write letters of hope to encourage and inspire others without compromising what I believe. This website became a place to share stories, revelations and everything I find helpful on this journey of walking and growing in faith.

Writing makes me come alive…

What makes you come alive??
