Living out the Great Commission {We Must Go}

Making my way home from church, with the sun shining down, the heat beating against my skin and the sound of Tim Hughes’ “God of Justice” playing in my ears it happened, I was struck once again by the pull towards the Great Commission. But since that time the pull has been different. I’m not sure about you but I’ve always thought of it as a global thing, in the sense that we have been all called to do the same thing. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of Continue Reading →

How living in a Women’s Refuge changed my Life

what living in a refuge taught me about freedom

Up until a month ago, I was living in a Women’s Refuge, I had been living there for about 16 months. It doesn’t really matter how I got there, that’s not what this post is about. What this is about is what being at the refuge taught me, what it did for me and how it transformed me. As difficult as the experience has been on so many different levels, looking back I can see it as one of the most empowering, liberating and loving steps I have taken to support my own journey of growth, healing and transformation. I Continue Reading →

Do not Conform to the Patterns

romans 12 2 if most of your life you've been told to go left and it seems God is telling you to go right, of course, there's going to be a struggle!

In this post I want to talk about how we conform to the world and how that is impacting on our ability to live a truly abundant life. I was listening to a training by one of my favourite faith mentors the other day and he said something insightful that led my mind down an interesting journey. He was commenting on how from the moment we are born that God has given us the ability to imagine and fantasise, for example, if you keep kids away from the TV, mobile and tablets they will begin to use their God-given imagination Continue Reading →

3 Passover Reflections to Transform your Faith Walk

3 Passover Reflections to Transform your Faith Walk

Good Friday has come around again and I’m in a reflective mood. I’m actually thinking about Passover because technically that is what Good Friday is, a celebration of Jesus as our Passover Lamb. Have you ever considered these words from Revelation 13: 8, that the lamb was slain before the foundation of the world and also in 1 Peter 1: 2: “He was appointed beforehand to this before the foundation of the world and was manifested at the end of times for you;” No matter how busy I am, as soon as the time draws closer to Resurrection week, my Continue Reading →

Your Heart knows the Way

your heart knows the way

 Dearest one,   I want you to know that your heart DOES know the way and the answer.   So many times the Bible speaks of the contrast between a hard and softened heart. A hard heart is closed off, wary and fearful, a soft heart is open, embracing, willing to learn and expansive.   The Bible also says that the heart is deceitful, who can fathom it – but if you look closer at the Hebrew, the Bible isn’t saying that the heart is wicked or evil but more that it is crooked or that it is skewed and Continue Reading →

What pursuing “Mr Right” taught me about Success and Failure

What pursuing "Mr Right" taught me about Success and Failure

Not only is this week the week of love but hey, it’s Valentine’s day and it’s got me thinking about important lessons from relationships especially what I’ve learnt in the pursuit of “Mr Right”. As they say, the way you do one thing is the way you do everything, so that means you can learn about success and failure in other areas of your life from the way you do relationships. So in this post, I’m sharing some of my learnings with you. You may not know this but I met my ex-partner when I was 18 years old and Continue Reading →

“Vision Boards” in the Bible

"Vision Boards" in the Bible

Yesterday I discovered two things, firstly an example of “Vision Boards” in the Bible and secondly that Vision Boards were made popular by the book ‘The Secret’. Before I realised either of these two things I had already been using visual imprinting for several years and had seen it work in different areas of my life. As such I have a good scientific basis of why and how it works so felt very comfortable using it in the work I do with clients. For many years mainstream Christianity has shunned the use of vision boards because of its association with Continue Reading →

Pursing Change vs becoming the Change

Pursuing change vs becoming the change

A lot can happen in 365 days, in fact, you’ve probably realised at some point that your whole world can change in just one moment!  That’s why I’ve been thinking a lot about change and readiness recently. For example, the Bible talks about being transformed by the renewing of the mind and the re-creating of the heart, and likewise that our body prospers just as our soul prospers. All of this points back to a need to change at an intracellular level before it happens on an extra-cellular level, in a nutshell, it means that you are first required to change Continue Reading →

The Gift you secretly want but you don’t

So often we find it's the very things that we want the most that we have a nasty habit of running away from

Who doesn’t like to receive a gift? Not you right? Well, how sure are you about that? Because I’ve noticed that it’s often the very things that we want the most that we have a nasty habit of running away screaming from. So you want to see a change in X and you’ve been praying for it, but how about those nasty self-sabotaging behaviours that you have been acting out to subconsciously push it away? Uh-huh, you didn’t think about those, did you? Yes, it’s true, we can often be our very worst enemies when it comes to receiving the Continue Reading →

Big Dreams = Bigger Trust

big dreams require even bigger trust

Here’s a simple truth that I’m discovering, big dreams require even bigger trust. When I talk about big dreams, I’m really talking about your heart’s desires, not so much what you think you want or what you’ve been told that you should want or chase down but what you really, really, deep down in your soul desire. Big dreams generally always come with a dose of fear, anxiety, doubt and worry and as much as I’d like to deny it, I’ve noticed it in myself. When I stop to think about it, the reason behind it is obvious, it means Continue Reading →
