Something different

I have always done things differently. Just check with my mum 🙂 She is still bemused that at 9 months old I got up and walked…determined that a little thing like age wasn’t going to hold me back. Since that first literal step, I have continued to walk my own path. I coached my first…

A prayer for all my babes past and those to come

Thank you Lord, for Your promises of protection. I pray that You will put a hedge of safety and protection around them to keep them from harm. May fear never hold them back from trusting the security they have in you. I pray specifically for protection from accidents, disease, injury, or any physical, mental, or…

Dear Joseph

Dear Joseph I want to tell you a story. It is one of Adley’s favourites. It has a hero (as all good stories should) and a villian. It has triumphs over hardships and funny things that happen along the way. It is about a boy named Richmond. “Not that long ago, in a country not…

Baptism in the sandpit

Something light…(for something different!) I was out the back with Adley and Nevaeh this afternoon, tidying up as they were playing in the sandpit. I could hear Adley chatting away but as I have a pretty yucky ear infection at the moment and am finding it difficult to hear, I really wasn’t paying attention to…

An inspiring life?

I’ve been thinking…I tend to write something and publish it, then mull it over in my head for a little while. Maybe I should do the ‘mulling’ before I hit publish, but I am far to impatient for such things! I read this blog, Momastry, and I am always inspired by what ‘G’ has to…

Are you richer or poorer today?

Have you checked out if you will be richer or poorer after today’s budget announcement in Australia? From the little bit I have seen, looks like we will have a tiny bit more in our pockets! Unfortunetely, the same can not be said for Foreign Aid and Development. The government had promised to increase the…

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. And to make matters worse…I am an emotional decision maker. Can you tell the Pekan’s are spending lots of time thinking?? Feel like God has got something big for us….just gotta decide (and…

Caden’s Dedication

Our baby boy is growing so fast. This gorgeous time seems to fly by! I have been blessed with a very very good baby (so far…I know this can change fast! I have first hand experience…) Caden is peaceful, talkative, attentive, curious, relational, strong and cuddly. Isn’t it amazing how well you can know your…
