Something from Nothing

Back in August, I had my first Oak hall experience. If you haven’t read it yet, then pop over to The Lake to find out more about the wonders of Umbria, Italy and group holidaying! What make Oak Hall specialised is that it is a Christian run holiday company. For me, that was the attraction,…

This is Autumn

#thatswhatHesaid At the beginning of the year, as I took time out to reflect on 2017 and prepare for 2018, I felt God simply say that 2018 was to be marked by seasons. When I came to the end of one, to seek Him for the next. I wrote about it in Setting Your Goals and I…

Watchmen

This morning, as I was driving to the office, I got stuck being slow-moving vehicles, not once – but twice! TWICE!! There was no way around them, countryside roads with twist and turns don’t allow much room for manoeuvre. I was resolved, I had to go slow. In the slowness, I became inspired. Last week…

Rubiks Cube

“my brain is the sort that at the mention of an idea, an event, or a problem; creates a thousand possibilities in a moment. Yet it is too fearful to pick even one and so I waver” Recently I was talking to a friend, another creative, who is often able to see what I am…

Simple Truth

I wrote this post in 2009! It was inspired by a talk by Stu Gibbs – I think from a youth leaders weekend! However this morning in church, Holy Spirit reminded me of its content so I thought I’d repost it here! Welcome to my 26 year old start up blog: I’ve just had an…

The Final Season

“There are days, there are days when your life clouds over, and the world gets so dark; that all at once you can’t tell night from day” This is quite possibly my favourite song from a musical; it is most definitely one of my favourite lines. Sung in Act 2 of Miss Saigon it depicts…

It’s Only Words

Sat outside in this gorgeous sunshine escaping to the streets of Paris in my latest read, I was reminded of my passion for words. I love words, I surround myself with them. I use them (maybe sometimes too much) but words are essential to my life. I often talk about the words we say, whether…

What Wakes Me Up

I can’t believe its almost a month since I last posted. My fingers aren’t so quick on the letters, my mind is struggling to remember how to piece thought together. I know if I sit and plan, it will never get written. I have a notebook full of drafts to prove this. A stream of…

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…

This is Spring

If you were to describe yourself as a season – which would you choose? I think, hands down, I am a spring personality: a little chaotic, always seeking the new, unpredictable in my energy levels and require support and nurture for growth. If you have read my blog for a while, you will know that I use the…
