Your Biggest Why and Breaking through Resistance

Breaking through the dam of resistance

I’ve had wake-up calls before. For instance, falling ill changed my life but it took time and I went down really, really low before I could even begin to see any light at the end of the tunnel. Yet, as much as I have grown and changed over the years I still struggle with resistance. I hear people say that you need to have a BIG WHY in order to overcome your resistance, I get that. But let’s take a moment to think about what resistance really is. Resistance is defined as the impeding or stopping effect exerted by one material thing Continue Reading →

How I’m using my LifeScore to Transform my 2018

Joshua 1:8

I recently took Michael Hyatt’s LifeScore Assessment, I’m a sucker for quizzes, tests and assessments at the best of time so I couldn’t say no to trying this one and actually, I thought it was intuitive, simple and had a good level of ‘face validity’. So in this post I’m going to share a little bit on my results but mostly on what I learnt from them, how it’s going to inform my 2018 goals and why I think this is a great starting tool to help you make amazing shifts in 2018 (and no I’m not an affiliate, I 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 →

Self-knowing as the Key to Clarity in Life and Purpose

Self knowing is your inner guidance system

Throughout May I have been doing a series on re-discovering your voice. I started it because a friend of mine had commented on how naturally and authentically I present my “brand” to the world, nothing “salesy” yet still attractive and aligned to who I am. I am not a business coach and don’t pretend to be but I guess what she was saying that in a space where people can definitely come across one way and be another, to have a brand that is authentic, congruent AND still attractive to potential clients is often not the case. You’ve probably heard Continue Reading →

What I learnt from my Friend’s Passing – I give myself Permission to Live!

I give myself permission to serve in joy

A close friend of mine and dear sister in faith passed away over the weekend and as usual, when something like this happens it prompts you to reflect on life. I would like to share some of my thoughts with you. My friend Lorraine was/is amazing. She had a larger than life personality and an even bigger heart, her door was always open for fellowship and she was a mother to many people. She was a fantastic intercessor and worshipper. Each year without fail she would travel to Israel for ministry work or celebrate a feast day, last year she went Continue Reading →

What no one EVER tells you about ‘Going BIG’

The Abundant Living Summit

Have you ever wanted to start a BIG project or up-level in some way but found yourself unable to cross the finishing line? Well, I want to share some insight that no one ever tells you about going BIG and what to do about it. This week I start promoting my first ever virtual summit and feeling terrified would not be far off from the truth. I’ve been beavering away since February, working long hours with sometimes one meal a day but guess what? That has NOT been the hardest thing.The hardest thing has been pushing past fear, resistance, doubts and Continue Reading →

Is God calling you to Walk across the Waters in 2016?

Live the journey

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 →

God’s Plan doesn’t Work for Me (Guest post by Ashlee Barclay)

New year is approaching and I can’t think of a better God-ordained post to share.  So glad to welcome Ashlee Barclay as this season’s guest blogger.  This post is full of timely wisdom and I’m sure will be a blessing to someone out there as we move into 2016.   Happy New Year 🙂 So I’m trying to live this life as the perfect teacher turned Stay-at-Home mom. I’m educated, ambitious, determined, and after all, we just have one child – “easy breezy”. That was me about a year ago. The teacher part, that was my choice that I had Continue Reading →

4 Things That Keep You From Achieving Your God Given Dreams (Guest Post by Dr. Naima Johnston – Bush)

Inside each of us is a purpose only we can fulfil.  As the cares of life encompass us we often lose sight of those dreams and settle less.  Are you living a life filled with Christ’s purpose and applying your gifts to be a blessing? It wasn’t until I quit my job to found Broken Box Ministries. I didn’t have the resources to do what God was calling me to do. I felt I was too old to begin pursuing my dream and I was unsure but I needed to trust God. Maybe you’re not called to quit your job Continue Reading →
