Making memories

Yesterday someone pointed something out to me. Something really important. Something that I thought was a slightly funny but inconsequential moment, was actually potentially significant. Bear with me... Yesterday on the school run I had fractious kids - I blame Monday! I was pre-coffee and not really up for the noise levels that six kids, mostly boys, can produce (I also pick… Continue reading Making memories

Sinking Deep: Hillsong Y&F

Music moves me. No question. There are lyrics, songs, albums and artists that define periods of my life. I have no doubt that Hillsong Young & Free is going to be the music I look back and identify with this early part of 2015. My entire adult life has been about trying to control everything. And worrying what… Continue reading Sinking Deep: Hillsong Y&F

Scripted Sunday: The Voice Within

I have to admit, I'm a bit of a Christina Aguilera fan. She has some terrifically strong lyrics in her songs - not to mention she's one heck of a singer! I remember hearing this song 'The Voice Within' well before I was a mum, and always thinking 'this will be a great song for… Continue reading Scripted Sunday: The Voice Within

Scripted Sunday: This I Believe

This morning in church it was so wonderful to be led in worship by the kids worship band. Their young voices (none of them yet at high school) were equally talented and genuine. I have no doubt there are future worship leaders in that group. So great to see friends of our own children up… Continue reading Scripted Sunday: This I Believe

Thankful Thursday (Sept 11)

I am super grateful that we have a faith-based radio station in New Zealand. Every morning in the car the kids and I listen to the hilarious hosts on the breakfast show of Lifefm. Funny as they are, everything is delivered under the umbrella of being inspiring and encouraging youth with faith on their journey.… Continue reading Thankful Thursday (Sept 11)

A SONG FOR THE JOURNEY

I've said before how much I love words and music and how lyrics impact me. These lyrics to Colton Dixon's song More of You are getting a lot of airplay and really resonate with me at the moment. I always liked Colton and was a bit gutted when he was kicked out of Idol. He has… Continue reading A SONG FOR THE JOURNEY

IN MY OWN HEAD

Daily prompt: Back to life It's funny to me that this prompt treats a flight/drive in the same way as a grueling week at work/exam period. To me, they are worlds apart. A long flight or drive, especially alone is like my idea of awesome ... the hard week at work or exams not so… Continue reading IN MY OWN HEAD

One of the biggest joys of technology for me is definitely being able to discover new music - weekly! I'm a paid up Premium member of Spotify so… Continue reading SOUNDTRACK FOR MY LIFE
