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 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…

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…

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…

Song Defining Moment

Have you ever had your weird Spotify playlist – you know the one I mean, the one that’s so eclectic, it astounds even you – on shuffle, and wondered “If one song could define you, what would it be?” I have. I wonder it quite a lot. I listen to music quite a lot. And…

Living in the Shadow of the Almighty

I grew up in a musical environment. Not the traditional sense of a musical environment; mine and my sister’s early lives contained a lot of music, of all different genres and varieties – there always seemed to be music playing. I’ve always loved listening to music, and going to concerts, and I spend a lot…

Desires of The Heart

A few months ago I kept waking up in the middle of the night. I’d wake up every night at either 3am or 5am, and lie in bed for about an hour trying to get back to sleep. I mentioned this to someone and they said to me, that I should use that time to…

If God is for us, who can be against us?

If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 Last week, I found out that not only am I still not liked at work, that a few members of staff like to exchange unpleasant words about me behind my back. Some of these members of staff, I thought were my friends. This…

Feminism – Why I Don’t Like It

As controversial as it is to say, I really don’t buy into the whole concept of feminism. I understand people have died to achieve equal rights over the course of history, but I’m talking about everything since then. Modern feminism. I am very grateful, and extremely thankful that people have in the past and still…
