Darling Buds

This week I decided to explore the public footpaths near where I work. After work on a couple of days, I decided to venture forth into the unknown. I love nature and greenery, in particular – trees. I love woods, forests or just big, interesting looking trees. I always find that I can connect to…

Crisis of Confidence

I had an amazing time at Hillsong Conference a few weeks ago. It was uplifting, encouraging and enlightening. To try and carry my sense of wonder into my everyday life, I have changed my morning routine. I no longer listen to the radio in the morning as I get ready and drive to work –…

In Over My Head

Have you ever been going through something and you really don’t know what to do about?
You’ve exhausted all of your options, you’ve done everything you’ve conceived to be possible, and still there is no resolution or even movement toward resolution?

God’s Voice

Just over a week ago I was at Hillsong Conference London. My first Conference. I had the most amazing time – the teaching was phenomenal, the worship was transcendent and the Holy Spirit was moving. I decided to go with my sister and her church, when I booked I was a bit of a church…

Here’s To The Fools Who Dream

Earlier this year I saw a film in the cinema that absolutely tugged (or even yanked) on my heartstrings. I loved it, and then hated it, but hated it because I loved it so much. It made me cry. It made me laugh til I cried. It made my heart feel so full. It made me hurt inside. It literally made me feel like I was on top of the world and utter crap all within 128 minutes.

No Longer a Slave to Fear

For a significant amount of my life – over 20 years – I would consider what I was doing to only be half-living. I was so paralysed by fear in my youth and childhood that I didn’t ever learn how to be independent, or in all honesty how to be me.

So why not share a little about how you became a Christian?

Drums in the band. The leader talking about porn in the service. People taking a genuine interest in who I was. These things were the big three that made me question whether church was for me, and if Christianity was relevant today. This experience happened in Vancouver, about six years ago. It was August/September 2011,…

My Journey So Far

Everyone has a different story of how they found God – some have dramatic tales of redemption while others have humble origins. I never really thought about mine until recently – I became a Christian in one church and stayed there for so long… they all knew my testimony. Having moved and settled at a…

Everywhere

Today has prompted me to write. I started the day with some impromptu DJ-ing. I have an old record player (one of my most prized possessions – it belonged to my grandfather) and a very eclectic collection of records and singles. I enjoyed a bit of Bruce Willis, Bucks Fizz, Kylie Minogue and Guns ‘n’…

Voting, Politics and the Bible

This past year has seen some dramatic voting results – I’m thinking mostly of the election of Donald Trump and Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. We’ve also seen an attempted coup in Turkey, terror attacks influencing the French general election and the worst migrant crisis affecting Europe since the Holocaust. Politics doesn’t just…

A Love Like This

I’ve been listening to commercial radio the past couple of months. I’ve always been a Radio 2 girl and switching over the biggest difference is the addition of adverts. About a month or so ago, one advert caught my attention. It was for a TV show where the comedian John Bishop interviewed a celebrity and…

I Am? A Battle with Identity…

Identity is such a big part of our modern day society. Recently I have gone through a huge identity change, and it’s made me think about identity on a bigger scale. In October 2016 I got married. It was an incredible day that we spent 11 months planning for. However, one thing Tom and I…
