I am 48 years old. Life is fashioned by mountains and valleys, some valleys caused by our own failures, some by others. But God. His faithfulness. I live with little regret. Not because I don’t wish I had chosen different paths at times, but because I have learnt – because I know forgiveness, I have … Continue reading My God.
I had a ‘moment’ this morning. You know the ones where you realise God is right there beside you, loving you, encouraging you. I was at staff meeting. I am in a privileged position of working at a church. I say privileged because I have always worked for not-for-profit or ministry organisations, except for last … Continue reading Arise My Daughter
I read a great quote the other day: There have been times during this divorce process I have felt ashamed for my actions. Things I’ve done that were ways of coping. One of the hardest things is that I have learnt to shut down. I have done things in order to escape the pain. I … Continue reading Trauma Response
Dear Mr X, So much has happened the last 15 months. I wish I had written more. The hurts, the disappointments, the hopes, the dreams, and finally the resolve. I struggled with our break up. After years of hearing how much God hates divorce, I berated myself and beat myself up because I just didn’t … Continue reading Dear Mr X (Part one)
Why are we always in such a hurry to fix things? There are a lot of people who want me to ‘fix’ my marriage. And they want to see it happen quickly.

At every turn I pray tenderness floods your soul, beauty captures your heart and wonder saturates your mind. Imagine a world where we strive for our souls to be filled instead of our houses. Imagine a world where our hearts overflow instead of our credit card. Imagine a world where our eyes are full of … Continue reading For You
(Note: This was written from 35,000 feet back in March this year. Still relevant although much has also changed.) I’m sitting here in the shadow of leaving my husband and I’m asking myself … when did ‘I do’ become ‘I don’t’? What was the catalyst for the change? What happened to make me suddenly say … Continue reading When I do became I don’t…
Healing can be a painful process. Sometimes you cut deep. Sometimes you are surprised by the truth you find when you search for it. Healing means being brave enough to feel the emotions and strong enough to allow yourself time to process them. Healing doesn’t happen overnight. It is a journey. It’s ok to not … Continue reading Healing
I value you, or I wouldn’t have shared my story with you. I love you because of your beautiful heart and love for God. I treasure you because you make me feel known by you. Or you did. Until now. Until I told you I left my husband. I shared my story, I poured out … Continue reading Dear Christian Friend…
Who are you in the silence? When Gods whisper has stilled And his presence is void Who are you when the world is not watching?
