Be Right Back – on a blog break

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

Slowing down, not keeping up

I have found myself getting angry and irritable at some pretty silly things and have had several days where I have felt completely overwhelmed. This week, after much toing and froing, I paid… Continue reading Slowing down, not keeping up

Same Sex Relationships by John Stott – Book Review

The topic of same sex relationships is something that I tend to shy away from. I feel ill-equipped to discuss it with a fear of offending others without meaning to, so much so that I have been putting off writing this review for longer than I intended. Most people, whether Christian or not, LGBT or… Continue reading Same Sex Relationships by John Stott – Book Review

The Mustard Seed Mum: What I’m Learning

I am learning a lot about being a mum. Or I think I am. Everyone has their own way of being a parent and puts their stamp on things. There's lots of trial and error involved. For me, a lot of head scratching and confused looks as I try and figure my beautiful boy out.… Continue reading The Mustard Seed Mum: What I’m Learning

My Greatest Adventure

Empty supermarket shelves, low water pressure, uncollected bins... turns out we are not built for snow in this part of the world!

Bursting the bubble

It's a grim place to be standing on the fringes of the faith I profess. I am tired of going through the motions. I can't pretend that I am content with staying in a bubble of belief where everyone can see me, but I feel trapped and unable to breathe. Have I gone crazy? Am… Continue reading Bursting the bubble

The Higher Way Code – A Narrow Road

“I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C.S.Lewis Some people view Christianity as restrictive. Nobody likes to be told how to live their life and as a… Continue reading The Higher Way Code – A Narrow Road
