Be Right Back – on a blog break

I've only just started writing again, and now I'm disappearing? Well, not quite. You see, I have very limited time to write at the moment (being at home with young children does that), so I am trying to be a bit more organised! My blog will continue and I aim to post content here regularly.… Continue reading Be Right Back – on a blog break

Waiting for words because they matter

Do you know someone who always knows the right thing to say at the right time? Maybe you know someone who always manages to say the wrong thing. Words matter.

Just a blogger?

When people ask what I do for a living, I have a bad habit of saying 'I'm just a mum'. I even try to prepare myself to answer differently, but I always seem to sneak the 'just' in there. But there really is no 'just' about it. I am a mum. And it's a very… Continue reading Just a blogger?

J.K. Rowling and I should go for a coffee. We seem to have a lot in common. Besides our love for writing, books and our vivid imaginations, I found out earlier this week that we share a common fear. Someone asked the Harry Potter author over Twitter what terrifies her and she replied: Although… Continue reading Freaking out over public speaking

The Vulnerable Me

It's 2016. The first post of the year. Where to begin? Truth be told, I don't know where to begin. I find that when I don't know where to begin, I should go back to the start.

Blogging or Flogging: When Did Blogging Become a Crime?

As a blogger and a writer, I cannot help but feel a little on edge at the rise in violence against bloggers and writers who exercise their human right of freedom of speech. I write about my Christian faith and I have the freedom to do that - at the moment. Freedom of expression is… Continue reading Blogging or Flogging: When Did Blogging Become a Crime?

Broken Your Resolutions Yet? #OneWord

2015 has started out wonderfully with regards to blogging. I have been so encouraged by many Christian writers and their blogs in 2014, and this has continued into the New Year. There is an online conversation happening all over cyberspace in various forms where bloggers are coming together to champion Christ above all else. It… Continue reading Broken Your Resolutions Yet? #OneWord
