Fear, Faith & Family

If you will follow me on social media you will already know that this weekend has been full of facing that which I fear. What you may not know is I spent the week before, in my various groups in schools, talking about fear. Through it, I taught myself some lessons. Fear Is a Lie…

Faith & Creative Writing

As part of a series on creativity in our church. I was asked to speak on using creative writing in worship. I opened with this spoken word. Good morning, today I have been asked to speak on using words creatively to worship. There is so much I want to say which I won’t; so I…

Setting Your Goals

I set my goals and resolutions as a punishment to what I haven’t achieved, fearful of not being ‘enough’, hoping the destination will bring me whatever I believe it gives me that perfect life. This year I want them to be driven from a place of grace and love.

BIG

This year I chose to focus. In focussing I was enabled to have big adventures.  If you read much of this blog, you will know I have a passion about being fearless. I think too many of us live from a place for fear and it dictates our attitides and behaviours.  In 2017 I have…

A Zeal for Life

In my last post, I was talking about finding me again. That post kind of got hijacked by a stream of consciousness (my preferred way to write), what I had meant to write was only about the final P: Passion, rather not such a P but more a Z. Zeal Passion is continuing to be the…

Finding Me

Am I Fearless?

Yesterday Karen from Love Your Camera hosted a Creative Skills Swap Day at the Alexander Centre in town! It was a day of flower crown making (a new skill for most of us)., vision boarding, chocolate strawberry eating, instagram stories, and getting to know each others creative passions and life stories.   So, are you fearless?…

Exploring New Opportunities

A couple of months ago, I wrote my first post for The Rising Blog which you can read here. In it, I mentioned that I took hold of new opportunities. One of them was to join Kent Outdoor Explorers, through meetup.com At that point, I had not actually plucked up the courage to attend one of…

Actually, I Can

Have I got my tickets, my passport, my money my phone… these aren’t the only words that can run on a cycle through our mind. Daily, thoughts about ourselves enter our mind. Some are positive, but the ones that seem to stick like a broken record are the negative ones.

Self Control

I feel like it has been ages since I’ve had this screen before me. Sure, I’ve sat in the sunshine and penned blog posts, but actually getting around to typing them up? Not so much! I feel like I’ve got so much to say until I need to say it! Part of my hiatus has…
