I Am Not Waiting.

When you talk to Christians about being single, there are a few different responses. At this point, I've had them all: some will tilt their head to the side, give you a gentle smile and say something like "it's OK, he's out there somewhere"; some of those who are married will nod knowingly, and talk about…

What Makes You Beautiful.

It’s funny how the way that we look (and the way that others look) is one of the things that has become so very important to us. We spend time and energy trying to make ourselves look acceptable before we go out. We dress a certain way, do our hair a certain way, look a certain…

Should we Burn Dirty Fuel?

[Stick with me -- I'm not talking about petrol, I promise!] This post is a kind of response to a video that caught my attention on Youtube - Hank Green is a well-known figure in the YouTube community, and in this video he was sharing his thoughts on motivation, and where we get our energy from.…

Five Minutes With: the Director of a Bible College (Robin Barden from Ridley Hall, Cambridge)

We've spent the last few weeks talking lots about the Ridley Lay Ministry course at Ridley Hall in Cambridge: we were invited to partner with Ridley to share our thoughts about the course, and to chat about my experience of studying there.

I will admit that I know next to nothing about surfing, and most of my knowledge comes from bad Australian soaps that I watched as a child - but I'm pretty sure that the process goes something like this: you paddle until your arms hurt, and you're in deep enough water that you will be able…

The People that you are Allowed to Delete from Facebook.

Facebook is something that has, annoyingly, played quite a big role in my life. I've had an account since I was a teenager, and I've managed to collect a pretty big, pretty random selection of friends over the years: from the people that I went to secondary school with, to friends from the various part-time jobs…

I'm going to prefix this by saying that I 100% do not have this sorted, and I am pretty much speaking to myself here - but if you need a kick up the bum in this too, then please share my almighty boot. I really love writing. I began journalling in September 2015, and I am…

How to Be There for Your Friends.

A little while ago, I wrote a blog post about how to do long distance friendships well: as I have grown up, I have come to treasure the people in my circle who are really around for the long run. There is such value to be found in these friendships that we are really doing life…

The #2018homestretch

Fireworks night always seems to be a significant night - there's something about this time of year that means it usually lands in the middle of the October and November blues, and yet it's the time when I start to think about Christmas, and what I want my life to look like at the beginning of…
