5 bible verses that can help when you’re struggling
A few weeks ago I asked you all to help
figure out what I should write here and what happened surprised me. For starters, almost 150 of you replied. I expected much fewer. Then, when I began to read through what
you’d said I was overwhelmed by how kind you ...

When you're wondering how to build a bridge between people
A few months ago my husband, Xylon, took 5
or so books that we both read once but aren’t likely to read again to a second

A prayer for when you're in a bad mood
We woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. We admit that our attitude isn't what we want it to be. Our words have been short, our actions unkind, and we've cast some looks at people that have been down right mean. Everything has irritated us toda...

When someone makes you feel worthless, remember this
Genesis 1:31 records after God created man, God looked over everything he had made and said, “it was so good, so very good!” In the Psalms we are told how God knit us together in our mothers wombs, how we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Think about that...

Why you have to slow down
Without health it is hard to live life
well. That's
why one of my focuses this year was to learn to run well. I've run for years
but I've never really had goals, followed a programme, joined a club or worked

Words to pray if you need Jesus to be your strength today
I don't make a living from blogging. It's a hobby. Something I
