I have been a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl. And mostly it has worked for me.

God has an ironic sense of humour. Perhaps you knew that already. I had this post in my head about a week ago. It was supposed to be about all my brave friends who are battling life-altering things, but He thought it might be better for me to live it out on a small scale. […]
I’m thinking that just maybe God is trying to tell me something! It seems like all the books that come to me for review are joining together to form a whole pictures of things I need to know.

And there was great rejoicing across the country. And many who hung their heads and deep sighs came out of their being. The people have spoken and the decision has been made. We have a new Prime Minister. Will this be a good decision? Only the Lord really knows. After all, He is the One […]

Yesterday we talked a little about shame and disappointment coming from a mistake or poor decision that we’ve made. How about when that poor decision is disobedience towards God? What do we do when we feel like God is disappointed with us? This is a hard one isn’t it? We like to think about God […]

I LOVE this song. When we are disappointed, we MUST remember this one truth…He’s a Good, Good Father and we are LOVED by Him.
There are some moments you never forget. We were moving into our first house that we bought. In the middle of boxes and furniture our new neighbour from across the street came over with the news that my brother had been in an accident. This was in the days before cell phones. My baby was […]
