What does time with God look like? How can we know Him? Over the years, I have been the queen of excuses regarding the time I intentionally spend with God. I've said 'life is busy, I don't understand what I'm reading in the Bible, I'm too tired, I'm distracted' and so on. However, I have… Continue reading What does time with God look like?
“Don't dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.”Elisabeth Elliot Christians are known for being people of faith who have confidence in God. Surely that trust in God is the antithesis of doubt, right? But what if it's God we are doubting? How can He be trusted if X, Y and Z is happening?… Continue reading Why Did You Doubt?
It's almost June and it's week I-don't-know-what of the lockdown measures because of COVID-19. This has been a season of struggle and suffering for many. The 'norm' has been changed to a new normal. It's been months since we've been able to hug someone outside of our home. We have to give those we pass… Continue reading Unlocking the truth in lockdown

It was pretty amusing that he was dressed up like this on the way to see the nurse. He had a minor allergic… Continue reading Superhero or Saviour?
Have you ever participated in a tug of war? I think the closest I have come to a tug of war is pulling a Christmas cracker in the hope that I will get the joke, the gift inside and the bigger bit of cracker. A full on tug of war is a 'sport that directly… Continue reading Ropes, rocks and resurrection
Empty supermarket shelves, low water pressure, uncollected bins... turns out we are not built for snow in this part of the world! We ran out of bread and milk and apparently everyone had the same idea because we couldn't get either for a couple of days and all the long-life milk had gone too. Walking… Continue reading My Greatest Adventure
In some ways I am a bit of a perfectionist. I like everything to have its place. There needs to be some sort of order to chaos. I get uncomfortable when things seem to go outside of my control. Having a baby means a lot of stuff gets left undone. Tasks I set myself go… Continue reading The Brokenness That Makes Me Brave
