• The blessing that stems from a peaceful home

    If God offered you anything you wanted in this world, anything at all, what would you ask for? Tough question. Takes a bit of thinking about. A new car? A bigger house? Good health? A long life? There are so many things to choose from. What would you choose? Can I tell you something? After […]

  • Grace: The Greatest Gift of All

    “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast”—Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV).

  • How I overcame my battle with anxiety

One of my favorite YouTube videos is of children singing a Zach Williams’ song titled “Old Church Choir.” What makes the video so special is the actions of one […]

  • I declare Psalm 91 over your life

    Yesterday afternoon before school pick-up, I dropped into the nearby shopping center to buy some food supplies. Preferring not to have to take the children through the shops, I was on my own for once and was therefore able to observe the surrounds around me, as opposed to managing my children. As I started at […]

  • Canon J John: ‘Finding Comfort in the Craziness of Covidia’

    I imagine I’m not alone in feeling that I have been mysteriously pushed through the doors of some magical wardrobe and now, in a state of severe bewilderment, find myself gazing around a strange, unwelcoming landscape. It is definitely not C.S. Lewis’s Narnia; this hostile desert – which I take the opportunity of naming Covidia […]
