Playground

Today I went out shopping with the family. My wife and daughter went for a hair appointment and my two boys stayed with me to grab a birthday gift for their granddad. After we found the gift the boys wanted to buy we headed to the playground near the foodcourt at the mall. The boys... Continue Reading →

The Sincerest of Prayers

If I'm brutally honest with myself, my most sincere prayer isn't one I'm proud of. It's not part of an inspirational tale of hope, passion and fervour with a dash of redemption. It's a tale of desperation. Of being beyond worldly help. It's a tale of being well past the point of giving up. It's... Continue Reading →

Furthermore

"Pride Month" is upon us and the hatred and slurring has already hit my timeline on multiple social media pages. And it left me wondering... Why do we feel the need to correct this small demographic. Why do we think that we're qualified to dish out judgement and justice? Don't all fall short of the... Continue Reading →

This isn't because church isn't understanding enough or doesn't care, it's mostly due to an inexperience with something none of us want... Continue Reading →

Cornerstone

‘Now therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the...

A hole in the head

We often hear about biblical heroes doing amazing deeds. Performing miracles, saving nations, changing the hearts of kings. However there's one story that sticks out to me more than any other. About someone so fragile destroying a powerful enemy and saving an entire nation inchained. No it wasn't David. It wasn't any other man mentioned... Continue Reading →

‘Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.’ – 1 Peter 5:8-9   One of the first impacts of mental illness is isolation –...
