Most times I want to and have retreated into the walls and spaces I have built; paper refuges, hiding from paper giants. … Continue reading Are you brave enough?
How many of you struggle with doubt on a daily basis? I'm going to take a guess that it's most of us! I know I do. Which is part of the reason that I sat down to write. For the most part, I try to stay out of the doubtful realm and live in an … Continue reading What to do with doubt

It is so easy to forget this and worry about how I'm doing … Continue reading True rest
(This is an article I wrote for a youth magazine recently and wanted to share it with you all). Shopping for the right shoes has always been a daunting feat for me. It just seems to take much longer for me to find shoes that fit just right. One thing I know for sure is … Continue reading What does the bible mean when it says to put on ‘readiness for the gospel of peace’ shoes?
I read that quote today and I loved it! So I thought I'd include it in my next blog post! I went to a Women's Retreat in November last year and learnt soooo much!

I’m sure those men had done this a thousand times before. They knew the drill; wake up before dawn and head off to work deep in the Chilean Atacama Desert mine until their shift was over and it was time to return home, completely exhausted, only to begin again the following day.
