Hearing His heart through the gift of a cake

Can God speak through cake? I think He can... A couple of lockdowns ago (we are now at #6), I was up at my local store and saw that there were quite a few mandarin tea cakes available for sale. They often sell fast, so seeing this many was a surprise. They're certainly a favourite…

Where few have dared to tread

I set out for a walk late lockdown 2020. The house was full, life was busy, the atmosphere intense. God had a sound track ready for me and I was excited to listen. An encounter was on the wind - it was the end of a season, the start of a new one. I found…

The sound of new life

‘It was the sound of new life,’ he said excitedly. ‘It was the sound of new life!’ My 14-year-old-son was explaining in a rush of words that he had finally worked out what the sound was that he had heard in a dream just a few days before. My sister had passed away in the…

Coffee with Christ

Yesterday afternoon I felt a little flat, so I took Poppy (our dog) out for a walk. It is lockdown number 5 in Melbourne, and as of Wednesday we clocked over 6 months in hard lockdown in under a year. That does not include the country wide lockdown that our nation lived through last March/April.…

The test of Faith

Currently, I am writing up teaching plans to train in the prophetic. As I do, God reminds me of stories that highlight the varied ways He speaks to us. I write them up as best I can. Some are quirky, others show I simply did not know He was speaking, while others cause me to…

Son-shine at the hairdressers Part 2

Good news warms the heart, so why do we so willingly repeat bad news? There was a book, or rather a series of books, that I read over twenty years ago called “Chicken Soup for the Soul”. They were lovely books, celebrating the goodness of God, the goodness of people. I believe it is now…

Son-shine at the hairdressers Part 1

God loves hairdressers. He turns up in their salons regularly. I was at my local hairdresser’s several years ago. I was getting “sunshine” for summer. *Belle was my go to girl for nearly 8 years at this stage. She knew my story, and she had heard the story of many others who had overcome known…

What are you waiting for?

In the early stages of my more ‘radical’ walk with God, my children were young, and so my world revolved around school pick ups, ballet schools, children's activities, etc. I was also working as a lawyer, but my primary focus was ‘on the streets, in daily life.’ In this, I have found ‘they’ are waiting…
