Families across the world are in crisis. I help equip, inspire, and challenge parents as they raise their children well. When we live in wholeness and freedom, we all thrive.

Stories can change your life

Stories have the power to delight, to teach, to explain, to thrill, to remember and to bring healing.  They bring us from one reality to another. They open up our world. Stories change the world.

How to discover my purpose

What am I here for? The age-old question of purpose and calling. Deep within every human being is the longing to make their mark on this world, to know that have meaning. Our purpose in life is the very meaning of our existence. Consequently, without knowing this, we often suffer because we are unaware of our own significance. We succumb to the illusion that our lives don’t matter, and we have no connection or impact on the world around you.

Lent and 40 days to lean into generosity

Lent is something that I’ve heard about and thought about for years.  As a mom, I’ve often carried on with the busyness of raising a family – sick kids, school runs, meal preparation and play-dates.  However, this year, I thought to try something new.  So, tonight over dinner, we will be discussing how we can generously embrace the season of Lent. It starts tomorrow, hence this quick post.

A bit about me

Family means the world to me; they’re my biggest win. I’m happily married to Neil. We’ve been together for over 20 years, and our children are now teenagers. We think that every stage of parenting is the best phase.

Peoples and nations of the world inspire me. Having travelled and ministered in many different countries, I continue to dream of going to new places. As a family, church planting and missions have been part of our life for over a decade. Through Neil, I’ve learned to seek beauty wherever I go.

Two of my values include living authentically and transparently. My heart continues to expand to see individuals, marriages, families, and communities transformed by love.
