lessons we learn in like

We’re living in times where our decisions and standards are often influenced by others. You only have to look on social media to see this played out. There are so many voices with a standard and moral that won’t...
Earlier this year, you may remember I wrote about a school in Kenya that was in desperate need of a rainwater tank. The rainwater tank was to help the village by supplying fresh drinking water to the kids and...
Yesterday was a good day. It was a day off from my work shifts after working 5 shifts straight since Saturday. It was a day to get the girls flu injections which has been on my list to get done since...
What can be built with three nails and a hammer? Not very much, my mind replies. But that was all that was needed to kill an innocent man. Three nails, a hammer and a cross. Small things can impact one person's life greatly. Small...
Since my last appointment with my neurologist, I’ve been asked by various friends, what the latest development is and how I’ve been feeling about it all? To be honest, I’ve felt guilty in admitting I haven’t really thought too much...
Like most people, I will usually create some intentions or a list of things I want to invest in for the year ahead. You can read some of those intentions for 2019 that I shared back in January. So far...
Clean drinking water is something we all take for granted here in Australia. With one flick of a tap, we can fill a glass, take a gulp of water and have no fear of dying from a disease. While the...
I love the promise of a New Year. In fact, seeing a New Year in, another Easter, another Birthday and then another Christmas is a privilege denied to many. So when a New Year rolls in, it’s a good opportunity...
This year has been the year for finding solutions to problems, or rather trusting God to find solutions to our problems. This time last year, my mum was planning a family trip to America. A blessing of finances to my...
Every year, I’m always grateful for the readers of my blog. What started as a diary of sorts sharing what happened on plumbing jobs, to now morphing into a lifestyle blog with a side of plumbing, I’m grateful for...
Yesterday, I had a doctor’s appointment that brought relief to the question of ‘what if?’ in my mind. Around a month ago, I decided to get a health check with blood tests to see if I was lacking in anything...
I remember when I was in my early 20’s, my dad said something along the lines of ‘Bec, you will eventually need to do less because you will be too tired to fit all the things in your life.’...
I’m a planner at heart. I like to have a good idea of what I’m doing the next day - the next week and the next month. But I can also go with the flow… providing I know those...
Whenever I write a personal post, I don’t always know how it will end until I type my thoughts on the page. I usually end with a point to make or a message to convey. And generally the lessons are ones...
If there is one thing I have re-learned since the start of the year, it would be life is as extraordinary as you make it. Such a simple truth and statement to make, but one I struggle with because when...
With the gorgeous autumn days and winter on our doorstep, I’ve made an effort to walk the girls to and from school. It’s a lovely stroll to school… providing we’re not late. I enjoy the walk and even though...
The first time I went to a Disney on Ice show was last year when I took the family to see Frozen. It was a memorable experience and one I’d love to experience again with my girls. They love Disney...
So this week, you would have read that I have felt a bit blah. And you know what, it is totally normal to feel that way sometimes. Life is hectic. Demands from commitments can be draining. And it’s ok to feel exhausted...
When I was doing my training with my new job, I would use the stairs to get up and down from the training room. Every morning I would race up the stairs, hoping it would work off some of...
On Friday I finished my full time training with my new job. Woohoo! Since I’ve finished the training, I’ve given myself time to breathe and haven’t forced myself to blog or get writing done because my mind has needed a...
In the last 6 weeks, I have had very little time to spend with God reading His Word and reading books on faith that encourage me and lift me up. Heck, I haven’t had much time to read my...
I was captured by the character of Jamie Fraser in Outlander during the Season One episode of ‘The Devil’s Mark’. If you have no idea what TV show I’m talking about, you can read about it here, and you may...
