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. It’s a huge encouragement for families, especially if like us you are currently in lock-down due to COVID-19. Here’s 14 reasons…

Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 4)

In this final post of the series I want to look at Sarah and Abraham to talk about identity. People go on and on about sexual identity, about career identity, about family identity, about cultural identity. Over the years Sarah and Abraham had the opportunity to identify themselves as so many things.  Between the two…

Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 3)

We left Abraham in a pretty vulnerable situation on Tuesday (See This Post). Things were a bit sensitive. Abraham had submitted to God’s promise of a Son with a very personal act of dedication! He had declared that he (and all his household) would be circumcised! (Genesis 17:23) Not sure the staff would have been…

Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 2)

I can’t imagine how it would have played on Abraham’s mind, imagining his beautiful wife with the Pharaoh even though now she was back with him. That kind of sexual problem takes a lot of healing. Against her will, Sarah had very possibly committed adultery and begun a new life, never knowing if she would…

God’s Treasured Girls.

This is a poem I wrote to encourage the young girls in my life! I hope it blesses you too. It was raining but there was a girl on the beach. She was drenched and shivering, far out of reach. Was she digging for something? Grace watched through a window, questions in her mind, Wondering…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 18)

When God closes a door He usually opens a window. Isn’t that what the Reverend Mother used to say? Sometimes when I read Proverbs the action > consequence nature of the words can sound negative and judgy. Like a whole line of doors closing in your face. I might ‘feel it’ more if I choose,…

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,…

Proverbs 10 min Challenge (Proverbs 16)

I don’t know about you but I am constantly thinking about planning. It is just a mum thing? Goals, lists, strategies, ideas, they are everywhere, on bits of paper, backs of receipts, in the diary, on the calendar, in my computer, on my phone, in my head, in margins of books … There are plans…

Offline For a Month

We are off on an (almost) bush camping holiday! Two weeks at an unpowered, secluded, picturesque campsite by the sea that just so happens to be attached to a very swish resort- style camping ground with the works, including a kids club! The best of both worlds. To make it a bit more authentic we…
