I was sat with my friends the other day watching our children play together  sat with a cup of coffee in one hand and NO PHONE in the other and realised how far Id come since she was born.  I can remember watching other mums get to the end of their maternity leave and go back to their full-time job and feel grateful that wasn't me  feel grateful that Id get each one of those precious moments. Only to sit there distracted fiddling with my phone BEING BUSY trying to get everything done at all…

A Formula for Revival  "If we want a fresh filling of God in our lives—if we want spiritual revival—we must repent. That simply means we must humble our hearts before God and confess our sin. When we do, God will redeem and restore. He will refresh and renew." Wendy Blight | first5.org

WHATS THE POINT OF IT ALL?  I'm sitting here thinking how to put in to words what I'm feeling and seeing on my mind in this moment  We all go through pain We all go through suffering We all have ups and downs Problems Situations that make us question "why?" "Why me?" "Why now?" And these can be caused by things that happen which we don't have control over  So there's two things I want to talk about  1. These things that happen- that are hard painful challenging- are there to teach us…

As I have watched the reporting of water protectors flood into the Standing Rock Stone Camp I have seen living prophecy unfolding before my eyes. As a Warrior of the Rainbow it has been so challenging for me to not jump into this stand with my Indigenous Brothers and Sisters in solidarity with our sacred Water as I feel the Bat Signal has been beamed into the sky.  Due to my own personal life challenges forcing me to stay focused on caring for my health and the health of my family. It has…

At the end of the day all that matters is love and memories. So make sure you give it and make sure you make some. - Trent Shelton  It dawned on me this morning that Halloween is next week. How did it arrive so fast?! I feel like summer just ended... suddenly the days seem like they are zipping by and I simply can't keep up. I'm sitting here writing this and wondering if I've been present enough in my life lately. The answer is no. The truth is I've been focused too much on what is happening…

"our grief journey so far has been more complex than i ever imagined. perhaps that is one of the reasons grief is so difficult to process … precisely because it is so complex. if it were simple, it might be easier. but it is not simple: grief is a tangled web of wanting, longing and loving something you can no longer hold. it is a briar patch of self-doubt, what if’s, and wonderings. it is the isolation of being misunderstood or simply not understood. it is learning to breathe in an…

#Repost @theamateurdad  Honestly getting the kids in bed some days is the best feeling in the world! Surviving a day of complete chaos can sometimes be a successful day in itself. But time is precious and tomorrow isn't promised. I don't want my legacy as a father to be one of just going through the motions with my kids until bed time. Or just keeping them distracted enough on the weekend so they don't interfere with my plans. Yes kids bedtime can be a necessary sanctuary for tired parents…

We hold onto wounds feeling almost precious about them as they form our identities and create who we are. As we grow we must let go and move beyond these divisive states so we may emerge into wholeness. But this only happens as we understand the wounds we have how they are born from ignorance just as when another hurts us their actions are born from ignorance. When we understand and have compassion for our ignorance we will feel more understanding and compassion for the ignorance in others…
