To Be A Mum…

I am ‘Mum’ to three amazing biological children. Sir J, aged 14, Lady M aged 12 and Little Miss 7. You can stop pulling that face, these are not their real names, just how I refer to them in order to respect their future online identity and privacy.

Fail Your Way Forward …or face-plant trying

I want to succeed. And if I can’t succeed, if I really truly must fail, then I at least want to succeed at failure, failing gracefully and all that jazz.

A young woman, new in her Christian journey, who for the most part, goes largely unnoticed online, had posted a status regarding a certain behaviour she’d been engaged in. She declared that she’d received new revelation of how damaging this behaviour was, and then publicly renounced it, and encouraged others to do the same.

For The One who hasn’t yet found Her Wings….
