Kids ministry…I’m not begging…I promise!

I have been working in Kids’ Ministry for a number of years and I still have SOOOOO much to learn. My biased (but correct!) opinion is that children’s ministry should be the most important ministry within the church (probably alongside taking care of the widows, hungry and sick). You have to think beyond the ‘Sunday…

See Saw up and down…

See saw, up and down, in the sky and on the ground! I don’t think I have ever been a big see saw fan. Adley loves slides, Nevaeh will spend hours on swings…thankfully neither of them have been keen on see saws either (Just need to keep Caden away from them!) You know how sometimes…

Such a time as this

Change? I am all about change! Change is fresh, exciting and new! But…. Decisions….not so keen about. Decisions are hard, daunting, unnerving.

Taking care of your kids mummy

…yep, that means taking care of me, or you…depending on who is reading this! I have had my beautiful boy here for 3 weeks and 1 day already and I am so in love with him. But, surprise, surprise…the world hasn’t stopped spinning so that I can sit and stare at my newborn all day…

Caden’s Birth Story

It has been over a week since the home birth of Caden Joseph. As most new mummies I want to share his birth journey, and as his was an amazing experience I want to write it out so that I always have it. Saturday the 28th of January, 8 days past my ‘due date’ started…
