Staying home has meant more time on our hands. We are scrolling more, reading more and watching more. But what are you watching? God has been really speaking to me out of Proverbs 31 and I wanted to share some thoughts from verse 27 with you. She carefully watches over everything in her household and… Continue reading Consuming content or choosing content?
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?
I was about 9 or 10 years old when my Nan bought me a guitar. I wish I could say this one pictured was my beloved original but it got left behind when I left Welwyn Garden City many moons ago.I still remember sitting on my bed at my Nan’s house, learning chords and writing… Continue reading My weapon is a melody
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
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.

They say knowledge is power but the more I learn the more… Continue reading When the waves rise
Are you a perennial planner? A self confessed striver? Busily plotting your life to the nth degree then panicking when things take a detour? Yup me too. I like to know where I am headed, what I need to do to get there and how long it will take. But so often this doesn't take… Continue reading He who holds the stars

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
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
I've written so many blogs but not published them. I've poured my heart into pages and pages of notes. I've felt Gods presence so powerfully and cried so hard while writing that I've had to catch my breath. Many of these words need never be read by anyone other than Jesus. Like many prayers that… Continue reading Finding my purpose
