Plan C is Just as Good (I Promise).

"If you don't do what God has told you to do, then He'll find someone else to do it - you'll have missed what He has for you". It's one of the first things that I remember being told as a new Christian. It was the week of one of the many summer camps that young…

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.…

Lean In.

One of my favourite parts of the Christmas period this year, was a morning that I spent lazing on a friends' sofa, with a blanket and a cup of tea and my Bible, while the rest of the house still slept. It was that odd time between Christmas and New Year, when we were all floating…

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

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…

Psalm 1 (ish): The Psalm Series

You can read the NIV translation of Psalm 1 here. This is an interpretation.   I am called blessed. For blessed is the one who holds on tight to God; in the sunshine and in the showers, amongst the shouts of celebration or the taunts of accusations. Blessed is one who does not listen to the…

I Don’t Want to be a Wanderer.

I'll happily admit it - I am the epitome of the hipster, basic white girl on Instagram. I love running the I Am Project Instagram, and I also work a couple of freelance jobs as a social media assistant - I am known (read: mocked) among my friends as the Instagram queen. But with that social…
