Set your sights in 2020

Sight is a gift. (Ask anyone who doesn't have theirs and they will tell you so). To be able to see is something that we take for granted every single day. But there is a difference between having sight and seeing. You have no doubt heard the term 20/20 vision a few times already this… Continue reading Set your sights in 2020

When the waves rise

The skies are clear but my eyes are clouded. A storm rages in my soul. I feel torn in a million different directions, my heart beats I am staring at the waves rising around me and I want to run for high ground. They say knowledge is power but the more I learn the more… Continue reading When the waves rise

Finding me

All I have ever wanted is to belong. Isn't that what we all want? I grew up surrounded by abusive relationships, marriage breakdowns and bitter individuals. I have seen families torn apart by anger that was incited decades ago. I was fought over in the courts. I have never known, nor perhaps ever will know… Continue reading Finding me

Learn the unforced rhythm of grace

  The words appeared to jump off the page straight into my heart. The impact was so physically felt that I had to sit down as I steadied myself for the realisation that I am HIS. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters 2 Corinthians 6:18 The truth… Continue reading Learn the unforced rhythm of grace

Expect persecution for the promise

Persecution is not a word we like to meditate on. This isn't a topic for discussion over a cuppa and biscuit, it won't bring you light relief at the end of a long day and it won't give you a warm fuzzy feeling. But it is promised. Jesus Himself warned his faithful followers that they would… Continue reading Expect persecution for the promise

Mental health matters

If I had a pound for every time someone said to me 'I'm fine, don't worry about me, don't make a fuss or I don't want to be a burden' I would be a rich woman. In our modern day society that screams 'I can do it all, all alone', it is deemed weak or… Continue reading Mental health matters

Strengthen your core

Running is hands down (or perhaps feet down!) one of my favourite 'me moments'. It is when I get to pull on my trainers, put in my headphones and tune out the rest of the world for 40 minutes or so, a time when I am no longer wife, mom, leader, writer but just me.… Continue reading Strengthen your core

Put your hands up

"Mommmmyyyyyyyy!!!!" came the urgent cries from my two year old today, whilst I was washing up the dishes. I dried my hands and hurried to the kitchen door to see what mischief he has gotten himself into and I was greeted by the sorry sight of a very tangled up little boy. We have a… Continue reading Put your hands up

Happy Dependence Day

Yes you read right, the title is not a typo on my part! Across the pond, our fellow American friends (and many others scattered around the globe) are celebrating Independence Day, to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on 4th July 1776. The 4th July is a date very dear to my heart but for an… Continue reading Happy Dependence Day
