One Moment with God

One Moment with God

When we were in Melbourne last month, I sat and wrote a blog about being pregnant and having a baby. I chose not to post it because, to be honest, it was pretty negative. I came to the point where I realised after writing the blog that, fear is so ugly, but focus is powerful.

Hope Trafficker Book

Last year I set the goal to finish writing my book, so here it is! I’m so excited to share this with the world. I never considered myself a writer, but after I started blogging and God put on my heart to write about my unexpected journey of deep pain and taught me that that hope can be found.

Piper Starts School

Piper Starts School

I can’t believe we completed the first term of Kindy. The lead up to Piper starting school was really tough for me. I remember every time I thought about the possibility of Piper going to school, the fear took over my body and I felt physically sick. The thought of...

I Wrote a Book

I Wrote a Book

It’s still a foreign thought to me, that I actually wrote a book. I only told two people because I didn’t want to declare something, and like everything in my life, never stick at it for a long time.
R U OK?

R U OK?

I was reluctant to write this, but here I am being vulnerable, hoping it can encourage someone. It’s R U OKAY day and this is my story with mental illness.
Be Still

Be Still

When was the last time you actually sat in stillness? When you just sat in quiet, in God’s presence.
Who do you say you are?

Who do you say you are?

Lately, I have been having a bit of an identity crisis. I have been allowing how people see me, or think of me, or how I think they think of me, to define me. When you hear someone say something about you, do you think that is you? Like that is who you are?
Listen Up

Listen Up

While I don’t fully know what Piper hears without the hearing aid on, it has been described to us like being at a loud concert wearing head phones.
The Devil Loves Doubt

The Devil Loves Doubt

The last swallowing test we had for Piper we had been praying and believing for good results, we had people around us praying into this test. It had been over a year since her last one so we had been waiting a long time for this, for answers.

“So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!”

– Psalms 31:24

Married at 19, I became a mum at 22 to our beautiful daughter Piper, diagnosed with 22q (22q11.2 deletion syndrome – 22q),  I was taken on an unexpected journey.

Born in England I moved to Mandurah, Western Australia when I was 12. I don’t consider myself a writer, but after I started blogging about my journey of deep pain I discovered  hope can be found, and hope in us stirs hope in others.
