The word ‘ezer’ is Hebrew for help or succour (to give assistance or aid/assistance and support in times of hardship and distress). It is also a word that is used 21 times in the Bible. According to Marg Mowczko, it is used 16 times to describe God. In other words, 76% of the time that we hear about someone being referred to as a helper or offering help it is God.
Have you ever celebrated Passover? Attended a Seder meal? Or even been to one of those meals where Christians walk through Passover in order to understand Easter better?
Along with a few other things, it seems like 2020 is becoming "the year that Katy fermented everything". So far I’ve made sourdough bread, beet kvass, and ginger bug sodas. I have a batch of apple cider vinegar on the go; preserved lemons and maybe yoghurt are all on...
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
