5 Good Things In 2020 So Far

5 Good Things In 2020 So Far

We’re into March at last. Spring is in sight. Sure, January was long and February was stormy but the snowdrops are appearing and daffodils are trumpeting in yellow. It’s a time to start thinking positive again, indulging in sunlight, blue skies and general spring-merriment.

However, I don’t want us to start pretending that January and February just didn’t happen. What a waste of 60 days that would be! The answer? To look back on all the good things that have happened in 2020, relishing in them and thanking God for them. 

6 Questions with Hannah Tan

6 Questions with Hannah Tan

6 Questions with… is an opportunity for women and girls everywhere to share something about their passions and lives. (It’s also a fantastic excuse for me to be really nosey and learn more about the incredible women I admire.)

This week I’m putting Hannah Tan in the hot seat. We first met back in 2016 via the wonders of Facebook Groups (thanks Melyssa Griffin) and since then I’ve seen her go from strength to strength. While we’ve never met face-to-face (New Zealand is a little far for a casual coffee), she’s been a huge inspiration to me in how we can use social media for good. She’s also the person who gets the credit for starting me on, due to a Christmas present swap. I hope that this interview with her will inspire you as much as she has inspired me over the last four years!

Run Your Race || Lessons about Faith from Running

Run Your Race || Lessons about Faith from Running

I love to run. The other day I even went for two runs. One because I wanted to clear my head before work and the other because I was somewhat hyper after Friday cakes at work. Two slices of pavlova and two of cheesecake!

#LivingMyBestLife

Sugar induced choices aside, running is honestly one of my favourite things to do. It stops me from going crazy.

Practicing Gratitude… Is it Life-Changing?

Practicing Gratitude… Is it Life-Changing?

I promise you that this is a post about gratitude and how I practice it but first… … this particular story started back in 2015/6. I was still relatively new to blogging (who am I kidding, I’m still relatively new) and looking for some other Christian bloggers to...

Less Regina, More Miranda… But What About Jesus?

Less Regina, More Miranda… But What About Jesus?

At the start of this year, I decided to set myself a motto:

Less Regina, More Miranda

While I still adore Regina Mills, the Evil Queen who became the Good Queen, I have started to realise some of her flaws thanks to binging Seasons 2-4 of Once Upon A Time over the Christmas holidays. I’m in the middle of Season 4 at the moment and Regina’s biggest flaw is all too clear to me now. Everything should be all happy yet Regina is far from her happy ending. In fact, she’s become so obsessed with finding her happy ending that she is going to shape the rest of the season.

What the Bible Says About the Heart || Whole Self

What the Bible Says About the Heart || Whole Self

As is the case in culture today, the Bible (Old and New Testaments) uses the heart as a metaphor for two different things. Firstly, it is used to describe our emotions and how we relate to them. Secondly, the heart is talked about in relation to the things that we treasure and are invested in. Understanding these metaphors provides us with a stable foundation so that when our own emotions try to take control, we can instead give them over to God.

6 Questions with Liza Proch from Willow City

6 Questions with Liza Proch from Willow City

6 Questions With… is an opportunity for women and girls everywhere to share something about their passions and lives. (It’s also a fantastic excuse for me to be really nosey and learn more about the incredible women I admire.)

This week I’m putting Liza Proch (pronounced like ‘approach’) in the hot seat. The second Texan to be interviewed for 6 Questions With, Liza is an amazing artist both visually and musically. Her Instagram feed is filled with amazing artwork as well as timelapse videos showing the love and work that goes into each piece. When she’s not having fun with paint, she can be found creating music with her brothers. Ghosts was quite possibly my song of 2019! Liza’s vocals on it gave me chills! However, the most important thing about Liza is that she’s also open about her faith. When you have a following of over 5,000 people, that’s not a small thing to be open about. So, of course, we had to get her on FC. I’ll leave the rest of the introductions to Liza Proch…
