​I have a background of working in the corporate sphere, however the events in our personal life over the past ​8 years of living with a child ​with cancer have impacted me greatly.

No options?

What happens when you are in that place where there seems to be no options, no obvious solutions? This week I was reminded once again that there is an amazing God of the universe who is able and willing to intervene… Let everyone give all their praise and thanks to the Lord!Here’s why – he’s […]

Hope – will you let Jesus rebuild you?

What happens when hope starts slipping away? Darkness descends. It is difficult to think or see anything other than the negative. Stuff happens. Sometimes from wrong choices we’ve made. Sometimes other people’s wrong choices impact us. Sometimes things happen and we don’t know why. Earlier this week I was listening to Amanda Cook’s song, City […]

Who likes pruning?

It’s almost that time of year when the roses need to be pruned. They still have a few blooms, but they are looking very raggedy. Not at all like the brilliantly flourishing bushes of mid-summer. I’m a tough pruner. As pruning time approaches some of the rose bushes have branches that have grown to over […]

Home town memories

Some days we just feel sad

Some days we just feel sad. Recently I had one of those days. There were many reasons, a funeral the day before; a conversation that left me wondering once again about this world that we live in; an ANZAC day ceremony that gave pause for thought about the sacrifices so many young people made; and […]

The culture is changing but Jesus is the same

I was reading a news article the other day and it included the phrase ‘post Christian Culture’. And I immediately thought about Hebrews 13:8 .. Jesus, the Anointed One, is always the same – yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8 TPT How does the truth of Hebrews 13:8 reconcile with a ‘post Christian Culture’? The […]
