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 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 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 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 10)

Proverbs 10 is a great resource for life. It is for the whole body. Our personal body and the body of Christ. It gives action and their consequences. If we are wise we will learn from it, heed it’s warnings, live by it’s advice and reap it’s rewards. I almost went mad deciding how to…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 9)

Proverbs 9 describes Wisdom and Folly as two women; both sitting on seats at the highest point of the city, both calling out to those who pass by, “Let all who are simple come to my house!” Two completely different women, exactly the same words. Two completely different houses, one offer. Two completely different lives…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 8)

Wisdom’s Call. This week’s 10 minute challenge in Proverbs took so much longer than 10 minutes! The concept was good, “I’ll illustrate the chapter!” The idea seemed great at the time and I jumped right in feet first, no second glance at the clock or second thoughts…… to be honest, in amongst all the kids…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 7)

Chapter 7 of Proverbs is the most vivid picture of foolish innocence wandering into lust, drifting into adultery and landing in big trouble. If we are tempted to think that God is just a party pooper when it comes to sex, not approving sex before marriage, promoting that ancient tradition of marriage and championing faithfulness…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 4)

This week before I read Proverbs Chapter 4, I’ve setting myself a challenge to write the lyrics to a ‘song that tells a story’ from it, in 10minutes. Let’s see how that goes! I am enjoying the creativity coming out of this 10 minute challenge. Nothing like a good old deadline and tiny time frame…

Virgins and Weddings

The following is an excerpt from my upcoming book about God and sex. It’s from a Chapter called Virgins and Weddings about God’s blueprint for sex. I hope you are encouraged to get God into your sex life and perhaps, if you want to know more, to read the rest of the book. The book…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 3)

This Challenge is about reading a whole chapter of Proverbs, then responding to it in writing. Posts for Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 can be found here. This week for Chapter 3, I set myself the challenge of writing a short script. Haha. That was before I actually read Chapter 3. Man what a good…
