Recognising the impact of Stress on Healng

healing journey impact of stress

A big part of my healing journey began with copious amounts of writing, during that time when God called me into a place of Shabbat (ceasing, stillness and rest) it provided me with the opportunity to reflect, process and move forwards.  It was this writing and the truths that YHWH revealed to me during this time which enabled me begin to let go of toxicity and darkness within to create space for healing and flourishing.  You might hear me use these words often “create space” and there is a personal and Biblical reason why I say this instead of saying Continue Reading →

Are you Reactive or Proactive about your Health?

reactive proactive health

Last week’s MindShift question was as follows: When it comes to your healing journey are you more REACTIVE or PROACTIVE? ‪ I think this can be viewed as a spectrum that goes a bit like this Reactive ————Passive———- Active————-Proactive I asked the ladies to also think about some additional questions such as on average where did they feel that their default position was on the spectrum, was there still space for progress and what did they feel was blocking that progress. I have to admit that when I first asked this question I thought I knew what I would be talking about on Continue Reading →

How to handle it when you think you can’t

Has there ever been a time in your life that you just thought “I can’t handle it?” Silly me, of course you have, we all have because we’re human. As I write this I think of the great prophet Elijah that was ready to call it quits because he felt he couldn’t handle what was going to happen. Sometimes we think that we can’t handle it when we’re in the situation and at other times that thought is making the rounds even before it becomes a reality.  I can’t handle it becomes “what if this thing that I don’t think Continue Reading →

What does the Bible say about Mindset work?

BIble-based mindset

Mindset, mindset, mindset! It’s a word that has become increasingly popular and we hear time and time again. Wouldn’t you love to hear what the Bible says about Mindset work, why it’s important and what kind of practices would be most beneficial for you? I don’t fully know why but I was led to go into this, maybe thinking about it because of all the work that has gone on inside me and also how I see it helping other Christians too. The truth is ‘mindset’ work isn’t just for certain types of people who want to achieve certain types Continue Reading →

My Journey: Thoughts on Growing into Me

My journey

***Every once in a while I want to let you into my own growth and healing journey, I can’t promise it will be regular but I hope that it will be honest enough to encourage you.*** I’m feeling sentimental today.  I’m looking back over my past websites here and here and each of them represent a part of me, a period of my life, footsteps on my healing journey.  Although many times we may feel that it would be nice to reminisce and go back, the truth is that we can never go back, going back is never the same Continue Reading →

Faith without Works is Dead (Health Behaviours and Positive Life Choices)

Life is a choice faith without works is dead

Last week we looked at the importance of authentic faith and it goes very nicely with this week’s topic Health Behaviours and Positive Life Choices. We already know the scripture Faith without works is dead, but as we saw from last week as Christians we tend to focus on only one half of the equation, Faith. I love how the AMP says it: So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by itself dead [inoperative and ineffective]. (James 2: 17)

Two Scriptures that helped me embrace Faith in my Heart

Faith and Love

This week’s theme is Faith.  I have personally had quite a difficult relationship with Faith but I wasn’t aware of it until it became a Word that people used against me. When I fell ill and began to seek support from people in the church, the F word began to pop up a LOT.  I was told that I didn’t have enough faith and that I needed to have more faith. To say these words annoyed me would be a bit of an understatement, they really peeved me off.  However (emphasise x 3), it got me thinking more about faith, the nature of Continue Reading →

What I learnt about Trust going back to University + Training Call Replay

What I learned about trust from enrolling at university

So today I want to share something (two things actually) quite close to my heart.  The first is the replay of last night’s training call which was a big deal for me for very personal reasons but also I have a confession to make. This confession is actually the catalyst for last night’s training call, because without what I learnt during this season I wouldn’t have been able to share at all. What is it?
