Lent Thoughts

The Overs bible study group has been challenged in our latest study to spend 15 minutes with God each day – building a relationship with him. This involves giving him time to speak with us as well as us telling him honestly how we are. It can take place anytime, anywhere and anyhow. We commented []

Come to the Table

Listening to and sharing new songs and artists is something that I love to do, so I thought a blog would be a great place to continue that. About a month ago I came across a song called “Come to the Table” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfKVe4-j48w). It was late at night, I couldn’t sleep and I had some []

Making time for this podcast, that show, that new Kanye West album, that friend who wants to meet for coffee and also, for myself. I’m trying to juggle and balance all these opinions, while somehow forming my []

Criticism vs Affirmation

While presenting is a simple and remarkably useful skill, it is also an act that most people seem to find daunting at the best of times. Fair enough. Putting yourself out there, to describe personal thoughts or reflections makes you stand out from the apathetic crowd. To extend out to the world something that feels []

That Thing

The Scenario I don’t suppose you spend endless time arguing with yourself. Do you? I do.  In my head there are at least two people. They rarely agree. They like to take a good look at every angle of a situation before coming to any conclusion. Sometimes it takes all my energy to get them []
