Our Story

this is who we are

We adore storytelling

we were born out of one!

Aster was born out of a late night, joy-filled exchange between sisters. Sharing silly and creative stories one evening, the word ‘Aster’ jumped from the page and into my heart.

I remember asking my sister what the word meant. ‘It’s an old-timey Afrikaans word for girl’. I’m going to do something with that word one day, I thought.

It’s too beautiful not to share.

Little did I know the road Aster would walk – travelling the world gathering stories of Grace. Never did she leave me, even when I tried to shake her and run away.

That tends to happen when Jesus gives you a gift. It’s nonrefundable.

So here she is. She gets to be authentic. She gets to be messy.

She gets to grow and change. Just like we do.

We yield
to God.
I submit to the Lordship of Christ. He permeates and saturates every aspect of my life. I move, because He first moved.
We are Created.
I see myself through the eyes of the One who created me. I love myself, because He first loved me.
We are
not alone.
I was created for relationship - with my Creator. The natural outflow is relationsip with my fellow humans.
We own joy.
I choose to experience joy in every circumstance, not because I have the ability, but becaucs Christ gifted it to me.
We stick
it out.
I get to perservere through hardships and give the glory to the One who strengthens me.


I am Jané

No one knows what they’re doing. At least, I don’t. You’ve come to the right place for support, laughter, some good cries, because I in fact, do not have my life together. I have no answers and don’t pretend to. Join me in my pursuit of getting comfortable with not always knowing, not always understanding and not always liking what I find. What I do know for sure, is this.

Jesus is immutable. Immovable. Never changing. He knows. That’s enough.
