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…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 15)

Let’s talk about the physicality of Scripture! The beautiful Hazel from Pure Glory blog, encouraged me in a comment to speak scripture into my bones, after reading my recent post Y?. It is that exchange that inspired this study.  Today for my 10 minute Challenge I’m going through Proverbs 15 looking for Scriptures that bring…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 14)

Proverbs 14! So exciting to be almost halfway through my challenge. I have to say I have really enjoyed Proverbs, despite the constant conviction in it puts into my heart, and the resulting need to pray, and press into God to enable myself to do what it says!!! I am quite excited every time I…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 13)

Proverbs 13, my apologies for missing Monday, we’ve had a big week (month) here, but today, finally, the timer is on! As I read the beginning of the chapter, many themes are familiar, righteousness wins over evil, wisdom wins over foolishness, our words and actions have the power to build up or tear down, honesty is…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 12)

Proverbs 12 made me think of the ways in which God has transformed me over the course of my marriage. So I thought I’d include some anecdotes, with some verses. Sometimes people (including me before I knew Jesus) think that being spiritual means stepping out of reality. But it doesn’t. We are humans; we have…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 11)

Proverbs 11! This is so exciting because it means I’m over a third of the way through the Book of Proverbs! How often do you start reading through the bible with wonderful intentions but circumstances get in the way and you stop? Today I want to take a moment to cheer myself on and celebrate…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Chapter 2)

I talked about this Challenge in my previous post here. I basically read the chapter through, then give my self 10 mins to respond in writing. I plan to do 1 Chapter per week.  It’s a bit of fun and also a great way to study the bible. Last week I summarised the Chapter. This…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 1)

Photo by nappy from Pexels After visiting Unbolt Me last week and loving all the challenges they set over there. I have set myself a challenge, to break down the 31 chapters in proverbs, 1 chapter at a time, 10 minutes per chapter over 31 weeks. I’m going to read the chapter, then set the timer…

Train Them in the Way They Will Go

Photo by Porapak Apichodilok from Pexels My first child showed signs of his first tantrum half way up the staircase at the age of 9 months. There I was, standing two stairs down, ready to catch him, already a little over 3 months pregnant with my second child. I was already thinking larger family. My…
