A Faith Manifesto

    I am a grace dependent Christian.   I need his grace like I need air.   I am imperfect but filled with his love.   I am afraid to step out.. but I know that it’s okay to step out afraid.   It would be much easier to live a life without fear.   But living that way would be like not living at all.      I believe God is seeking out the broken, the messed up,...

She doesn’t stay in the nest waiting, hoping that something will come...

Her little hands came in for a hug, grabbing me around the middle tightly, resting her head on my chest. She points towards a picture on the shelf, counting the letters in the words. ‘There’s an A and an M’. ‘Mum, what do the other letters say?’ I look up at the picture my dear friend gave me for my birthday. ‘The...
