Recovering recently from an illness has given me wonderful time and opportunity to dedicate to some of my favourite things, pursuits which make my heart happy, and you know that's very biblical because 'a merry heart does good like a medicine'! Here's a simple and beau...

"The reading life is like one of those potent graces bestowed by fairy godmothers on princesses in old fairy tales,

the sort to help a young heroine grow in all good things, to love life in its fullness and beauty, but also to make her

Part 1of 2

Having previously lived in Australia for 17 years, and during a prolonged season of drought, I am accustomed to the brittle, brown grasses of summer, but I never thought I'd see it here in the UK! I have a picnic photo from last year's Mum Heart picnic (see below) wher...
