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…

I Hold On

So, Happy New Year! I guess is the best way to start this blog. I spent my last week of 2016 with my nearest and dearest in the Northwest of the UK – the most mild December in years I believe? I started and ended the trip in Southport where my sister and her new…

Let’s Talk About Sex…

I have just read a super interesting article called Why Men Cheat on Elle. Sex has become an answer in society – it inflates your self-worth, extends your happiness, boosts your ego, and is the cure to loneliness. Do any of these things last? No. This article is written by a man who has been tempted…

Together, Stronger

That’s the Welsh tagline for the 2016 Euros: Together Stronger. I used the hashtag during both of Wales’ games so far – as well as #BaleYouBeauty – but what we’ve seen in the world in the past few days, weeks and months perhaps shows us something else. The UK is currently divided, next week we…

Breaking Stem, Broken Strength

I heard at church on Sunday a speaker use the analogy of a tree. That a tree grows and needs the obvious things; water, food, sunlight, carbon dioxide. However, for a tree to grow tall and strong it needs something else; wind. Without wind, a tree never grows what it needs to endure it’s growth….

Bad Habits

I drove home last week. A few weeks ago, my dad had a heart attack. He survived, but he’s still recovering. My mum had a ticket to go to a Christian women’s conference in Leeds with my sister, so I offered to stay with my dad while she was away. Whilst I was driving, I…

Coming Together to Create Something Seen

I flit about a lot. Between tasks, between thoughts, between blogs. I have a pretty short attention span. It tends to take me months to read a book and my room is rarely tidy. I come up with dreams and imagine career plans for my future. I come up with ideas of what I want…

Church is…

Amazing. Boring. Exciting. For old people. Where Jesus moves. Where God lives. Where community happens. For Christmas. A place of acceptance. A place of judgement. LOVE. To many people, the word “church” conjures different feelings. The place means different things. Here’s what I’ve learnt (so far) – 

Be a Game Changer!

One day I was driving to work. I had taken my normal route – towards the end of the journey there is a place you can take a right turn and avoid traffic lights, which is usually a good idea in the morning. However, this one morning, I had forgotten to do that. I was…

When God Speaks

I was expectant this weekend for God to move. I was, after all, going to a conference called YA MOVEMENT, so I can’t be criticised too much for having that expectancy! On Friday night I would say I was stirred, but not moved. I could sense God wanted to speak, but there was a barrier…

Perspective

It’s been a while since I wrote a blog, so please bear with me! Right now isn’t the time or place for me to discuss what’s been happening with me in the past few months. Just to put it lightly – I’ve had a rough time. Actually, the first real rough time since I became…
