Don’t (Just) Tell Me that it’s Going to Be OK: How to Sit with Those that are Hurting.

I had the privilege, early this week, of sitting with a group of people who are all walking through some really difficult things. There was a real sense of burden in the group that night: they were as lovely as ever, but as we chatted I began to see some of the weight that each of…

The Contentedness Diaries.

Every now and then, I get a verse stuck in my head: it'll come up time and time again in a certain season - in sermons that I listen to, in conversations that I have with friends, in the videos that I have on as background noise. Those words will become my heartbeat; the rhythm of…

This is For Somebody.

This blog post was written at about 11:30 at night, sat cross-legged on my bedroom floor with a giant cup of tea and an old Matt Redman album on in the background. It's going to be one of those blog posts that is straight out of my journal - but I figured that if you're anything…

You Don’t Have to Protect Your Heart.

I am convinced that there is a tiredness that is growing in our nation and our world - a tiredness of life being only about what we have and what we need; about going to work so that we can pay the bills, and then paying the bills so that we can go out to work.…

We've got a treat for you today friends. We're hearing from Sarah: she's a photographer, a musician, Mum to two beautiful girls, my church big sister, and she's well and truly on team I Am. A couple of weeks ago, Sarah found some journals that she wrote just as she was becoming an adult - as…

Tara’s Story: Coping with What You Can’t Control

Last week we joined the conversation around mental health. Mental health is such a giant topic, especially with young people: 75% of diagnosed mental illness in the UK took root before the age of 18. We know that there is a massive stigma around mental health, and we want to be a part of the solution…
