Don’t forget to turn off the lights!

Sometimes I liken my thoughts to a bunch of tangled christmas lights, the ones that flicker all at once all the time. It’s like there are a million thoughts going through my head at different speeds about a million different…

Guilty until proven innocent

“Guilty until proven innocent.” A saying I’m sure we’ve all heard at some stage in our lives (even if only on tv). I think it’s safe to say that no matter who you are, we’ve all felt guilty at some stage in our lives….

“Just one piece” said no one ever

Anyone that knows me well knows that if I could live off brownies and burgers forever, I would do so happily. Sadly these two food items alone are not a good balanced diet. This means that at times I have to…

What’s up lonley

We have ALL had those moments where we have been surrounded by people, yet feel utterly alone. I know I have, even recently. Never fear, you are not alone in those feelings, and are experienced at some stage in life. Feelings of loneliness can…

Selfie-HG
Selfie anyone?

You only have to look around at our culture to see the blindingly clear message it sends us. The message that ‘self‘ is the most important person there is. We see this in tv shows, social media, magazines, beauty products and the ever popular selfie….

“Let it go, Let it go”

I think we can all agree this song was catchy until they played it a million times, and then it became stupidly annoying. Why does this song resonate with me even though I never want to hear it again? Because there are…

I love marriage, its no secret. I love seeing people get engaged, seeing them plan their big day, and then being able to be a part of their wedding day itself is so fun. The day I got engaged was…

I’ve had it up to HERE with you!

Think back to your childhood for a moment. Can you recall a time where either parent said “I’ve had it up to here with you!”, making a motion with their hand over there head to show their patience was running…

Three little pigs

Growing up we’ve all heard the story of the three little pigs (and the wolf), right? The wolf’s anger grew as he became unable to get what he wanted (he wanted to blow the house down), and we all know how that…

Question
What would Peter Do ?

“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6 Doubting God is something I am sure we have all…

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

If someone was to stop you in the street and ask you “What are you most afraid of?”  How would you answer? Is it heights, public speaking, spiders , small spaces, or being scared of the dark? These are just some…

Do you use Soap?

SOAP is a strange name for a really cool thing I found the other day that may help us all find it a little easier to get into Gods Word. I’ll be honest, I struggle in this area. I find it hard to…

I’ll admit there are some things in life that I will just never fully understand. Why it seems to without fail, rain straight after washing your car; why no matter how many socks you put in the dryer, the same…

Yes isn’t God’s only answer

The definition of Faith according to Hebrews 11:1: “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, for the conviction of things not seen.” The word ‘trust’ is a hard one, and there have been seasons in my life where I…
