My name is Nduta. And I’ve always loved words. They’ve fascinated me ever since I learnt to read. Then I discovered writing, and a whole new world was opened to me (pun totally intended).
This blog is mainly about my thoughts, feelings and experiences as I navigate through life and live out my faith. So I guess that’s where I should start:
I am a Christian. Born and raised. But I made my parents’ faith my own first in 2002, then got serious about it in 2006 and never looked back. Since then, Jesus has become more than a name – He is my Saviour, my Friend, my Confidant, and my First Love. But this relationship isn’t easy, no relationship ever is. So this is my story of how He helps me navigate through life; the lessons I’m learning; the struggles I face; and how I’m learning to live an abundant life in this broken world.
Hope you stay a while. There’s laughter, a few tears, lots of good words, and hopefully a lesson or two.
Ok. Now that we’ve gotten the basics out of the way….. let’s have some fun, shall we? I’ll tell you a few things about me, and you’ll tell me a few things about you.
I love to laugh. And I laugh shamelessly – head thrown back, eyes closed, all teeth showing. That’s the best kind of laugh…the one that springs spontaneously and doesn’t care where you are. I love such laughs. Seeing them as well as experiencing them.
I also love music. It’s food for the soul. It speaks where words (and prayer) fails.
I am sugar and spice. And one cannot exist without the other. You’ll see and (hopefully) enjoy both.
I love coffee. Absolutely love coffee. Which is perfect, because I am NOT a morning person. I barely function before 9am on the best days, and on the more difficult ones, I’m grumpy well into the afternoon.
Also…..I love a good story. No, that’s not entirely accurate. I am a sucker for a good story. Written, spoken, or sang. So I read voraciously, because books are life. I write, because words help keep me sane. And I listen to music, because songs tell stories where words fail.
That’s me in a nutshell. Your turn.
