Purposeful Singleness: Got a Valentine?

It’s that time of year again…the aisles of shops and supermarkets are flooded with all things red. Red cards, red roses, red candles YOU NAME IT! It’s a joyous time of year for those celebrating with their better half (I hope) but as a single how do you start feeling around this time of year?…

Feeling 24

Daily I’m blessed with 24 hours, today it all mounts up to 24 years and I am super thankful to God for allowing me to see this day. The past 3 years of my life have been the most turbulent but the most beautiful. There has been such a stretching, such a pruning and a…

2016 Taught Me That…

2016 Taught Me That… …some closed doors were blessings in disguise. “Why was I declined that job offer? Why did that business plan fail? Why didn’t that relationship work out? How!?” These are the many questions that we ask ourselves and the thoughts that run through our minds. I’ve learnt this year that some closed…

Be Still – Not The Mannequin Challenge!

Be still, not ‘still’ as in the #MannequinChallenge but from a biblical perspective, these words carry a greater depth of what we understand it to mean. Hesuchios…which is the Greek word for “Be still” meaning to refrain from labour, to hold peace, to be quiet and to rest. Psalm 46 in its entirety is an encouragement…

Has Social Media Made Us Less Social?

I truly believe social media has taken the place of friendships in our lives. We see people post on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram and assume that they’re alive and well. It’s easy to see someone post a snap of their meal or tweet all day but that doesn’t truly reflect what’s going on in their heart…

Everyone Seems To Be Doing Better Than Me.

“Everyone seems to be getting married and settling down – and as for me, there’s no bae in sight.” *opens Instagram* “Simone just got engaged OMD.. So did Ruth!” “Why can’t I be as successful as Jane in my career?” “Joshua just graduated and I can’t seem to pass any subject in uni.” “Their ministry seems to…

4 Steps to Better Skincare

Skin care isn’t just about what you’re putting on but also about what you’re doing. It’s okay to have the top products but all of it means nothing if you’re not taking care of your body! Being a nurse, I work long hours and sometimes nights. After a while, my skin wasn’t in the best…

Woman For The Night Time or a Woman For A Lifetime?

In a world that sexualises women, I want to encourage my sisters out there that they don’t have to buy into the lies we so often see in the media. This post is a short encouragement to every woman out there that THEY ARE MORE.

Purposeful Singleness: Got Contentment?

So, some moths back I wrote a post called “Purposeful Singleness”. The aim was to highlight that singleness is and SHOULD BE a beautiful season of growth and development in Christ as an individual. This time I’m back at it talking about CONTENTMENT. Contentment: “Contentedly satisfied with ease of mind.” I feel as if many…

Relentless Lover

He’s a relentless lover…relentless because His pursuit of you is continuous, never ending, persistent and He stops at nothing. He tugs at your heartstrings, drawing you closer to Him and you always get that urge to seek Him. He beckons for you, because you are His. His hand gently rests upon you. He sees you…

A Month On, What Next?

  Hey everyone! So it’s been a month since I completed my #NoShoppingChallenge and I must say that the hype wasn’t really a hype. Prior to finishing I was so excited but now that I AM ALLOWED to buy clothes it was kinda like…err okay?  The victory I felt coming towards the end of the…

Feeling 23

  Hey amazing people! Guess what? Today is my 23rd birthday! In all honesty I wasn’t doing a countdown of any sort and some friends of mine were more excited for my birthday than I even was! But my question is… What is a birthday to you?  …for some it’s a fearful reminder that they’re…
