You’ll be No Smaller.

The things that we don't get a chance to say are always the things that we think about the most. Often it's a tiny thing: reminding a friend that you're there for a chat; or just a smile as someone slips out of that party they're tired of being at, only the two of you knowing…

Moment Mondays: My Help is in God.

Let's face it: Mondays are not always fun. So often, as a new week begins we can find ourselves tired, frazzled and overwhelmed at everything that the days to come bring - all of the expectations that are on us, all of the ways that we can feel like we're falling behind and all of the…

Boundaries: the Knowledge of Something Solid.

I like this a lot, as a start to my week: it’s 9am at the time of writing, and I’m curled up in the lovely big armchair by the patio doors in our lovely home, tired but comfortable, allowing myself to wake up slowly with some breakfast and a cup of tea, and the sound of…

This Too Shall Pass: thoughts from Tom, Tom and Newt.

Hello. I’m Tom - Heather’s boyfriend: we’ve been locked in my parent’s house together for two months now, having only known each other for nine months when that happened (yes, really!). Heather told me very early on about the I Am Project; I read her book, which she sent me in the post before we even…

Body Positivit-ish: Part Two

A couple of years ago, I wrote a piece called Body Positivit-ish, discussing the great relationship (or massive lack thereof) that I had with my body.  That post blew up a bit: it was helpful to a lot of people, and I had so many great conversations around the way that we see our body and…

What Do I Need to Hear Today?

Today's journal prompt was this: What do I need to hear today? How can I uplift myself? It was a helpful time of thinking and praying and processing for me, and I wandered if this could be helpful for you, too. Written to Speak, a brilliant spoken word poet, writes about kind words - about how some…

Now is the Time // A Poem for Now

Now is the time for Caution. Caution is wise and and firm and smart and tall; she guards and she plans and she waits. Caution does not throw herself to the winds of change, tossed from here to there with the tide. But Caution can be found, always, in her chair by the fire, with clean…

Harry and Meghan: what can we learn about mental health at work?

Let's imagine, for a moment, shall we... You're in one of the most important job roles in the country. You've been aware, for the whole of your career, that your every action is being watched, scrutinized, and any inappropriate behavior will have a huge impact on not only you in your role, but the people around…

Lectio Divina Your Way Through the Bible: a new way of reading.

From day one in the Christian faith, if you're anything like me, you were probably taught about the importance of reading the Bible everyday - of having a plan or a devotional that takes you through the Word and means that you are reading and digesting something from it every day. It's true - it is…
