Daughter. He called me daughter. As I stood at a prayer and worship night at church, arms stretched high with tears streaming down my face, I cried out to God. I opened up my heart to Him, showing Him all the hurt and anger and bitterness and heartache and resentment; I showed Him all the ugly that was within me and in that moment, He whispered the word, ‘daughter.’ Daughter. Despite my rants and rages and the ugliness that was in my heart, He did not turn away; He drew near and He drew me near to Him and called … Continue reading He calls me Daughter.
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved children. If I’m out and about and see a fat little baby, all I want to do is pick them up and snuggle.

You wouldn’t know it from the surface because the water is covered in pretty leaves and the lotus captures your attention because its pretty and usually a vibrant … Continue reading Out of the ruble – Cambodia
Tomorrow is Mothers Day, a time to stop and honour all the mothers out there for being awesome and for doing the toughest job on earth; raising kids! I love Mother’s Day as it gives me a chance to spoil my mamma, something she doesn’t let me do often. We’re taking her out to lunch and I’ve gotten her some goodies to pamper her with. But while I know tomorrow will be a joyful day for us, it wont be for many people, for different reasons. Personally, it’s going to be a day of mixed emotions. This Mother’s Day is … Continue reading Standing in faith for tomorrow
