News: Again To The Books!

I have news! I think it’s exciting, good news, however, it does come with the disclaimer of: “Well, of course I’m crazy. But life’s more interesting that way!” Today plenty of students across the UK are excitedly finding their results, and then with whatever they find, hoping or searching for a place in their chosen…

Celebrations; or How To Plan An Awesome Event

As you may know, we planned out a pretty extravagant day for our daughter’s baptism. It is the most amount of planning we’ve done since Bear and I got married, and personally I think it was fantastic. In fact I think it was one of the best days I’ve ever had. I’m pretty darn confident…

A Letter To My Gay Brothers & Sisters

I write to you with humility. I don’t have all the answers. I write simply what is in my heart and if I offend at any point I hope you can forgive me, I do not intend to harm you. I have been wondering whether this was something I should say, something to write, and…

Us, Them & God

In a post-9/11 world, in a suspicious world, in a world where we hide what we have incase a stranger might take it, in a country where we are nervous of immigration, God can remind us of our duty and the standard which we are set in relation to “us” and “them”.

Sandy Baby: Easter & Eating

Day 4. Easter morning had very little to do with restaurants or a café, but still had a lot to do with food – especially with three lots of family in the vicinity. First though, came the St Andrews Sunrise Service, a tradition in this beautiful little town where people walk to St Mary on the Rocks (the…

Be An Encouragement

This short little post will be encouraging you to encourage. It may seem simple and something far too obvious but encouragement is often not given the credit it is due. When it comes to gifts of the Spirit, or talents from God to His people, the spotlight can be given to healing, tongues, and so…

My Birth Story: Slow Progress

I wrote most of this for my child, because when you are desperate for your child to turn up you start to talk to them about them maybe moving sometime soon. I hope you find it interesting, amusing, or whatever you need it to be. For me it is a record of a sort and…

Prayer: safety, humility and honesty

Prayer is a huge topic and not one I plan on covering in full now; there are also a large number of books, speakers, preachers, and structures that suggest that they know the best/easiest/most effective way to pray. Some of them have some good ideas but very rarely do they grasp the whole beautiful picture,…

Inducing Labour: My Experience

As you probably all know by now I’m generally not a fan of pregnancy, specifically in myself. I know I have had it lucky the entire way through and there are so many women out there who would be telling me horror stories of vomit-filled 9 months and braxton hicks as well as bladder issues…

Worth (Part I): It's All About Him

When life is tough, and even when it’s not, we can often feel unworthy. We can feel this around family, friends, in work, and often infront of God. One question I’ve often heard repeated by non-Christians is “If God exists, why would He care about me?” Sometimes even the church can pull us down in…
