"Sorry God, it’s been a while.”

This is how I feel like most of my prayers should start.

I have structured my life to include prayer - grace at meals, for example, and each evening our family does Teaspoon (TSP) prayers where each person has a go at a 3 sentence prayer,...

I realise we are blessed living in an exceptionally technologically based moment in history. This has provided us infinite access to answers, questions, truth and facts. However it has also birthed the reality that communication is global and instant, expectations are...

For years I thought that God was inefficient. It just didn't seem to make sense that the Bible could be so big and so full of complicated stories. Surely if God really wanted us to know what he was like and how to live, he could have done it in less space, surely? And...

Friend: “My daughter refuses to go to school, my son is throwing tantrums, the baby screams all night, my husband and I keep fighting and I have a serious...

The Bible’s pretty clear. As Christians we are to love each other. But what about those Christians who just seem really ‘difficult’? How do we love them?

There are different types of difficult...

I've always been a person who appreciates letters. I've been writing them since I was six - first to Karen, my Australian pen pal and good friend for years. We still keep in touch, 36 years later.
