A Heart Set on Pilgrimage

What does it mean to have a heart set on pilgrimage? And what about when the path takes us through a valley of tears? Will it be worth it?

NEW AND UNCHANGING

Do you like new things? Or do your prefer the old and familiar? Last year marked a lot of new things for me: A new baby grandson – a complete delight! A new persona – ‘Published Author’ A new kitchen and bathroom (and an almost completely renovated home) A newly retired

FAITHFUL IN THE WAITING

Well, a few days from now the wait will almost be over, and excited children will be putting out their stockings in hopeful expectation for them to be filled with goodies. For most children, I guess they have had very little to do once school is over, except to wait

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT?

A few years ago, around this time of year, I would be waiting for my son to arrive home from University, and getting very excited. We would be very much looking forward to seeing him. And hugging him, and feeding him, and even doing his washing! But he was at

WORSHIP

Tomorrow we will be in church, worshipping God. I love to sing, I love music, and I particularly love worshipping with others. It is amazing to think that as we join together tomorrow we will be joining with God lovers all over this planet, and with heaven itself in worshipping

THE PILGRIM WAY

This week my blog introduces you to some of the places featured in my new book, The Pilgrim, and why they are special to both me and Brother Hywel!

HARVESTING JOY: A NEW BOOK!

I have realised that four out of my last five blog posts have featured other people’s books. Now that is not a bad thing; I love reading and reviewing books. And there have been some great books to read and review! But I do think that perhaps I should dedicate

BOOK REVIEW: ALL SAINTS? BY ELLIE CARTER

I love reading new books by new writers, who like me have been brave enough to put their writing out there. Which is a very scary thing, believe me. I especially love books that are very definitely inspired by God, with a great faith message, that is lightly handled and

GUEST BLOG: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU START!   by Susan Sutherland

Instead of my ramblings, this week on the blog I am pleased to invite a new writer friend of mine, Susan Sutherland, to guest blog about how she came to write her book. If you love Biblical fiction you will love her book ‘Leaving Bethany‘, an imagination based around the
