making space

My name’s Kate. Over six years ago I became a mummy. My life massively changed! I left my career, fell madly in love and started the biggest learning curve of my life.

Stepping stones

You're suffering and you need answers, desperate for a breakthrough. You've been faithful, you've prayed, shouted, cried, persevered and still nothing. Does God even hear, does He care? Of course He does but why hasn't he answered, why are you still suffering? Sometimes we can feel this way and like nothing is happening but what if your breakthrough is within your reach, just a few steps away!

Is He Trying to Teach You Something?

Parenthood is full of seasons, many good, others hard and we can feel stuck in them for what seems like an eternity and yet suddenly in a moment they have passed. One such season is that of discipline. Over the last few years we have seen particular seasons where discipline has been needed more than others. Times where it seemed our son was testing the boundaries at almost every opportunity, ...

My Nan

Someone once told me that when writing a blog post you need to be real; people like real stories, with real emotions. Why read it unless it resonates, why write it unless it's real. I always try to be honest in my posts, to share from the heart and tonight is no different. When I started writing this it was tinged with sadness as my Nan had passed away only that morning. Sadness and yet also joy ...

More-than-enough

You're not enough... You're not brave enough, not clever enough, not loud enough. You don't have the confidence, you can't do it, don't even try. You need to change, need to fit in, need something else. You just can't.

Footsteps

I can vividly remember the scene; I'll never forget it, it was the first time. I was at Primary school and in the library. Myself and one of my best friends had just had an argument and as young children tend to be over their temporarily broken friendships, in that moment I felt devastated.

Bible

Are your children suffering? Are you struggling? What if knowing and doing just one thing could change it all! So many people don't realise this, but it's incredibly powerful and it could just change your's and your children's lives forever!

Last time

How could I have missed it? I was feeling so unwell but still how could I miss the last time. That precious moment that I can never, ever get back. I felt genuinely sad. It made me wonder, had I missed other precious 'last time' moments without even realising it and what else are we currently walking through that may also be the last time.

Bump

If you've had a difficult first labour or hard first few months with a newborn you will understand what I mean when I say the thought of another baby can be slightly traumatic. So how do you prepare yourself to do it again and avoid getting into a place of fear surrounding the next birth?

Tantrum

Ever had one of those days when you feel totally overwhelmed by your child's behaviour? You feel like you've given all you can, encouraged and disciplined but they still behave badly. A tantrum on the way to playschool so getting out the door and arriving by 9am is near on impossible. A meltdown at bedtime so the 7pm deadline goes out the window... making their behaviour the next morning even ...

What you love

As I write this my son's at Playschool. I'm sat here with a cuppa and cheeky piece of chocolate cake and actually getting time to sit and write, something I love and I'll be honest, I feel energised. Getting time to myself isn't something I have a lot of chance to do and yet I'm starting to realise just how important it is.
