About

My name is Esta.

I’m clumsy mostly. Long, gangly actions and words that always seem to jut out in places they don’t belong. I get scared of people. I write words on paper because in real life, my mouth stumbles often. And the written ones are often awkward too.

I’m a Canadian.  A nurse in her early 20s. A wilderness lover living in a city of 5 millionA wilderness lover living her dream in the northern bush. As the previous updates show, I went from an urban dweller to spending the next two years working at a nurse in a remote northern community. Then there was an bearded teacher who came back after 3 years and won me back. I now live with him and our fat little baby in a little house in Oregon.

 I tend to feel too much. I doubt a lot. I am learning to be okay with unknown.  I celebrate how much Jesus loves me and am learning to give that love back.

I need wilderness and books. 

 And tea. 

I can be reached by email at estafaye@gmail.com . 

So ya.

  1. Hi

    (awkward wave)

    I have stumbled upon your blog, and have greatly enjoyed the fact that you are not normal. Don’t be.

    Your post “A crack in the perfect, singing” resonated with me in particular. A little slice of my own experience as the odd one out: http://silverwarethief.com/blog/2011/04/05/endearing-weirdness/ There could be a lot more stories where that came from.

    Unrelated, but your post about your struggle with depression reminded me strongly of this series of posts about a struggle with depression (written by Shaun Groves). I think you will find it interesting to read what he shared from his experience. I think it is a nine part series. I stumbled upon his blog too. http://shaungroves.com/series/beggars-fortune/page/2/

    Hopefully those links won’t get me sent to the spam pile.

    Esta, seriously.

    If you ever go normal I’m going to cry. Probably for a whole day. Please stay peculiar forever and ever so that I may bask in the wonder of your being from afar.

    I can’t help but love you. I really can’t. (:

  3. Esta,
    I love you “About me” section. It is so real and transparent. Awesome!
    I found your blog through a link on Dorcas Smucker’s blog and have really enjoyed reading through various posts.
    I am a blogger too! I write at http://www.projectpaperie.blogspot.com. I would be honored if you would stop by and say hello!
    Thanks and God Bless,
    Gabrielle

    I don’t know you and you don’t know me, and the way I found your blog is slightly untraceable; however we bo0th belong to God and therefore we are sisters. 🙂 I really appreciate the way you write, I wish I was comfortable sharing all that God is teaching me at this time. I wish that I would even just take the time to examine my heart and really see all that He is doing in it. You have challenged me and I pray that I would take that challenge and go with it! May the Lord continue to bless you greatly! You can find me at “Gillian’s Jottings”, I would also recommend a new site called “Brag on God [.com]” (without the spaces, caps, and brackets) In Christ’s love, Gillian
