I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise;I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your...
The world seems to have gone crazy recently. The only difference is that this time there is some logic to the madness. You know what I’m going to say next… Coronavirus! This particularly contagious virus has taken over the world, or at least that’s how it feels. Along...
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… 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!
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!
Sugar induced choices aside, running is honestly one of my favourite things to do. It stops me from going crazy.
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...
At the start of this year, I decided to set myself a motto:
Less Regina, More Miranda
While I still adore Regina Mills, the
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.

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…
Originally my Word of the Year (WotY) was ROMANTIC because I knew I wanted more positive ideals of love, beauty and truth. I’m a romantic at heart, following by natural inclination beliefs and thoughts and philosophies made famous by the Romantic Poets. It’s why I idealised Pocahontas as a child and why I love films like The Breakfast Club. If it speaks into the beauty and/or truth of a situation, I will probably like it.
That may also explain why I love country music quite so much.
