The Laying Down of Christian ‘Things’

The plan around here is that we’ll be talking about the WORD on Wednesdays. This may seem like a natural sort of thing for a good Christian blogger to be doing but I need to give you a little backstory. I have been the good Christian girl all my life, doing the good Christian girl […]

Something is Awakened…

Childhood is the age of innocence and curiosity, at least it’s supposed to be. My innocence was robbed from me and I didn’t even know it at the time.

The Night the Flame Went Out

As a married woman I was still crushed by fear which made me feel ashamed and childish. I’d been a Christian all my life, I knew about the armour of God, I knew about prayer and yet, I was still afraid. There were many nights where I had to call my husband in while I […]
