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?
The theme this week in my Facebook group/Facebook page has been around trusting God, specifically how our trust in God can actually support health, healing and well-being. On Monday I shared a short video outlining why and how trusting God does this, and on Wednesday I shared an infographic outlining the 5 common barriers to us really trusting God. Today I want to talk about an area that I know I have struggled with personally and something which I believe is a challenge for most people if not every Believer if they were to really look into their hearts, thoughts and Continue Reading →
Welcome to 2016! We are now 10 days in, how has it been for you so far? If I look back over the last 8 or so years of my life, I can see YHWH orchestrating my life – yes even, with the illness. But do you know what? I see His hand most clearly when I reflect upon the New Year words He gives to me. He has been shaping my path, directing my footsteps with words such as… Commitment No Fear Breakthrough I had a song by Hillsong constantly on replay at the end of 2015 “Oceans”. I Continue Reading →
I’m so happy to share this guest post with you, from author Tracey Casciano. We all struggle with forgiveness that’s why I think that this week’s post is something we can all relate. A true story of light out of darkness. One spring day I was sitting in church and the pastor started speaking about forgiveness. This immediately made me uncomfortable. You see, I had been estranged from my parents for over 16 years. I didn’t like our relationship, but no idea what to do. As the pastor began speaking, I felt as though a spotlight was on me. Nothing Continue Reading →
I feel mighty blessed to share with you the artfully-penned and thought-provoking words of Joanna Oliver, our latest guest blogger. Say The Word, I will be free, Jesus….. …..say the Word, I’ll be made whole. These are the lyrics of one of my favourite songs, from a CD on almost continuous loop in my car. Isn’t it funny (in an observational sense), how one’s ears become sensitive to what we listen to once we acknowledge God as our loving father? I have noticed how all of my senses have altered. I see beauty in most things; I am more attuned Continue Reading →
I’m so pleased to feature our first guest blogger Selina Almodovar, you can read all about her and the great work that she does smoothing the course of love just below her post. During my mid-20’s I was living single. This was not by choice. I was recently dumped by the man I thought would become my husband, and I was taking it pretty hard. While things were supposed to be going great at that point of my life, I had reached an all-time low. I thought that if I did all the right things, then life would go according Continue Reading →
The idea of having hope never filled me with much joy, and I’ll explain why. If I Google, “definition of hope” I get back a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. This makes hope all about my feelings, desires, wants, expectations and plans. In the midst of a really hard storm, is this what I really want to hold on to? I don’t want a wish that may or may not come true, or a dream that could be snatched away like a child’s favourite teddy bear, no. In those times I needed more and Continue Reading →

Today I want to explore an issue that does arise for the modern Christian woman, the issue of feminine modesty. I know some people have some very strong beliefs on what modesty should look like and some don’t, so I thought it would be interesting to explore this issue using some images I’ve found on Instagram. What does modesty mean to you as a Woman of God? Let’s look at three definitions of modesty.
