14 reasons why Proverbs 18 can help build “Super” families.

Proverbs 18 – What an amazing scripture to help us with family life. Reading Proverbs 18 today has given me encouragement to persevere with training my children and being a better mum and wife.

Proverbs 10 Min. Challenge (Proverbs 17)

Spring has arrived in Australia! The Autumn (Fall, although not much falls in Sydney) and Winter were long seasons for us. Somehow it seems fitting to return anew to the blog, to refresh my work, at the beginning of a new season. It was completely unplanned, until 10 minutes ago. I didn’t imagine I would,…

“Come down,” said Jesus.

I was reading a children’s bible with my son earlier this week, and one simple paragraph spoke to me. ‘Come down, Zacchaeus!’ said Jesus. ‘Let me come to your house today!’ Zacchaeus was a short guy in a tree, but he was also someone who had spent his life oppressing others. “Come down!” said Jesus….

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 6)

Last week was hard, for a number of reasons.  The biggest one being sheer exhaustion. There are days I long for a holiday from my life. For me it’s uninterrupted sleep, uninterrupted conversation, and uninterrupted thoughts that I desire. Guilt free down time would be nice. A day with no fighting, no questions that only…

Sorry But Not Ashamed.

If you were one of the poor people at ALDI, Mona Vale, who had to suffer through 15+ minutes of solid screaming (the blood curdling, very upsetting kind) from my three year old son on Saturday, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for you. I know how you felt. Helpless, edgy, angry, frustrated, annoyed, frightened for the…
