To follow Jesus today, do we need a following ourselves? There are many Christians who have hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of followers on social media and they have the potential to reach many with the gospel. Even with a handful of blog or social media followers, are we making the most of the… Continue reading Follow Jesus, not me

Billy Graham and Bunsen burners
It's been one year ago today since Billy Graham went to be with Jesus. I remember the day well - the sense of loss, the impact that it had on the church and the world, and the countless stories of how his ministry reached millions. I wanted to write something that day, but I was… Continue reading Billy Graham and Bunsen burners
Looking out our kitchen window at night, I look at the house in the next street. They have a small Christmas tree perched on their upstairs windowsill. When it is dark, the lights on that tree shine so beautifully bright against a black backdrop. Seeing this light gives me joy and comfort - it is… Continue reading Christmas Light
An interview with Gavin Calver – story, sin and sharing good news
Tell us a little bit about you and how you came to faith! I grew up in a Christian home, did my best to follow the faith but it didn't quite work out that way.

In the… Continue reading An interview with Sarah Yardley – Cornwall, Creation Fest and Christianese
When Good Friday Doesn’t Seem Good
Hot cross buns have been toasted and eaten. The church service was amazing - there was a goat and it peed in the aisle (more on the goat later). Across the country, many are celebrating Good Friday. As Christians we remember that Jesus Christ died a horrible death by crucifixion. Doesn't sound good does it?… Continue reading When Good Friday Doesn’t Seem Good
It’s snow time!
As I type, I watch the beautiful snowflakes fall like icing sugar, dusting the view from the front of the house. Wind catches it, causing it to blow here and there before finally landing on the pure white ground. The car is covered in what looks like rolled icing. I love sugar - can you… Continue reading It’s snow time!
Unpopular Culture by Guvna B – Book Review
Guvna B has written a much-needed book that I feel many people need to read and will benefit from. Even though the book is called 'Unpopular Culture', I hope that it will become an extremely popular book! He carefully weaves details of his own experiences of living in a culture that is often opposed to… Continue reading Unpopular Culture by Guvna B – Book Review
Updates from the life of Writer Girl
At the beginning of 2017 I wrote a post about two words that were on my heart: simplicity and expectancy. It's now May and it has been amazing to watch these two words develop into something greater than I had imagined. We've moved! A lot has happened since the beginning of the year. I honestly… Continue reading Updates from the life of Writer Girl
Every photo tells a story
Beads of water. Holding on. Shimmering in the light. Beauty can be found in the smallest things. Thankful hearts. Reflecting. Beacons of light in a dark world. Slowing down. Time standing still. Resting. Quietly trusting that God is here. Breathing in the morning air. Drinking in the beauty of another day in the presence… Continue reading Every photo tells a story
