This last 12 months has made us value freedom, but I wonder how many of us are truly free?Whether you realise it or not, there is a battle going on for your soul. You and I are the target of an enemy who wants to seduce us with power, kill us with comparison and distract… Continue reading Forget eggs, take freedom
Hardships aren't easy. (The clue is in the name). But I've seen great purpose come from great pain. When I struggled with maternal mental health for a second time, and sank to such depths from which I thought my marriage and my family would never recover, I couldn't see a way out. I remember crying… Continue reading When what now becomes what if
What is a good romance story without a rags to riches tale? In The Notebook we see Allie and Noah; a rich uptown girl and a working class boy. They should never have crossed paths, they were told they would never make it yet their love surpassed surpassed the doubters. They chose each other. Ruth… Continue reading The Choice – part 3
Being on your own can be scary, and even more so in the times of Ruth in the Old Testament. However, the choices that Ruth made led to her being placed in the Royal bloodline. Last time we looked at how Ruth chose to stay with her mother in law, Naomi. That in itself was… Continue reading The Choice – part 2
I am a sucker for a romantic movie, and my favourite one of all time is The Choice (closely followed by The Notebook).

The UK has been in lockdown for three weeks and we have just been told that this will be extended by at least another three weeks. Halfway can seem like such a hopeless place. Not at the beginning, no where near the end, and it can leave us asking where is God in all of… Continue reading Hold on with Habakkuk
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.
