December 14, 2018

Our first child, Zoe, was finally here and home. I was exhausted but joy trumped my need for sleep, I was keen to show her off. Just a couple of days following her birth we set off for church, very slowly and carefully with our precious cargo and prepared to introduce...

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul..”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:1-3a‬ ‭ 


Without fail, every trip our family would take to Devon you'd find the last entry in my jou...

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...

A full day was behind us and as the sun was slipping away, I wondered when I too would get to slip away for some quiet time. I was navigating new currents of motherhood, having now two teenagers, one at each end, 13 and 19 years. As our eldest moved into adulthood I ha...
