We recently received some income and felt like we finally had a financial buffer. Then today we were hit with a huge car repair bill that wiped out all bar a couple of hundred pounds of it. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach and I’m guessing this is how the Israelites… Continue reading Where is your security?
Do you love HIIT? I do because I don't have time for hour long workouts and need something that is going to give me the most impact. I have discovered that approaching my Bible as a HIIT workout right now is super helpful too. Let me explain why. I have been studying the book of… Continue reading HIIT with Habakkuk
The threat of lockdown is now a reality. The 'what ifs?' are 'what nows?', and suddenly we are faced with a endless sea of uncertainty stretched out before us. While I was doing my house work today, I noticed areas that had been overlooked for too long; cobwebs in corners and dust gathered in dark… Continue reading Speaking from Faith or Fear?
Yesterday I had the greatest privilege of attending the Live Lent launch at Lambeth Palace. I was invited by The Church of England to learn about the climate crisis and how we can step up to make a change. As a family we actively work to reduce our waste and recycle wherever possible, but I… Continue reading Christians and Climate Change

Sitting in the Son. Yes the spelling is intentional. Because God knows I need His presence today. I didn’t make it through ten minutes of church because my two year old had other ideas. My ten year olds behaviour has been disgraceful on and off all week. Our belongings are scattered between about sixteen different… Continue reading Sitting in the Son
I am no gardener. One look at my forgotten borders will tell you that. However once or twice a year I will get a sudden surge of enthusiasm to trim edges and plant bulbs in the hope that something beautiful will burst forth in the summer months. So, it is of little surprise to me… Continue reading Why there is power in pruning
Just do it. That wonderful strapline, coined by Nike, that reminds me of my tendency to procrastinate at any given moment in order to avoid the inevitable. Why is it that when deadlines are looming I find an insuppressible urge to clean my house, when I should be dealing with an issue head on I… Continue reading Just do it
I love fresh flowers in my home. I love the scent that welcomes me as I walk through the door and the sight of the delicate petals unfolding day by day. Flowers evoke a sense of home for me, they suggest thought and consideration of a homemaker who has a love of the outdoors… Continue reading Don’t Fade; Flourish
