Today I have been thinking about community and how important it is.

I am so encouraged by community, I am so encouraged when a community comes together and supports one another.

There is something about being in community.  There is something about the strength of a community. There is something about the support of a community.

I love my role as a primary school Chaplain, I have mentioned this before in a few blogs, but I really do. I love what I get to do.

I am so blessed in the community (schools) that I get to be a part of.

I am in awe of their passion for the students that they are journeying with.

I am so encouraged by the people that I work with and how they go the extra mile for students in their school.

I am so encouraged by their commitment, I am so encouraged about their passion, I am so encouraged about how they want to make a difference. I am so encouraged about their vision. I am so encouraged how they want every student to have the best possible experience at school.

I am so encouraged and love how much they care.

I am so encouraged about how much they give of their time.

There are so many behind the scene moments that we will never know about.

The community that I am involved in spend hours in their own time working on preparing for their students.

I know all about this because I see this and I hear about this.

Let’s support each other in the community that we find ourselves in.

How is your year going?

I wanted to discuss with you your goals and new year resolutions for the year.

New year resolutions can be so exciting to make on new years day, but what happens after new year day. What happens after all the excitement and celebration of the night and then the next few days?

Have you been working on the goals and dreams that you have made at the beginning of the year?

Do you find yourself feeling guilty of saying to your friend yes, I am going to do this and I will achieve it this year?

Do you feel the overwhelming guilt of being in February and not achieving any of your goals?

I know that I struggle with my goals at times, I struggle with the expectations that I can place on myself. I can struggle with the timeline that I give myself.

One of my goals for this year is to complete my diploma in counselling studies. I have decided that I would like to finish my course by July 2018. Yes this year! Aaahh!

I have been working toward my goal this year, I have scheduled in and have written in my goals planner how much I with commit to studying the Diploma in Counselling this year.

How are you going with your new year goals?

Are you working towards achieving them or have you just placed them somewhere out of sight?

Don’t feel discouraged this is a safe place for you to be real, this is a place for you to say how you are really going.

You are amazing, be encourage, let’s all encourage one another to be all that we have been designed to be.


What Makes You Smile?

What Makes You Smile?



I have been thinking about this for a while, What Makes You Smile?

Sometimes we can become so consumed by what we are doing that we can forget to think about the things that make us smile.

We can be so busy, we can forget in our days to just stop and breathe.

We can become so busy ticking of our to do list that we forget to focus on what is really going on in our life.

Have you been just so busy going about your day to day routines, that you just find yourself exhausted?

Have you ever found yourself at the end of the day arriving home and you just want to crash on the lounge and do nothing?

What if we reflected on our day?

What if we went about our day with purpose with the intention that I will focus on those moments that make me smile?

I need to remind myself of this as well.

What makes you smile?

I love this question and I have had to remind myself to focus on this as well.

Some things that make me smile are-

  • My church
  • Working at amazing schools
  • The people I work with
  • Being in community
  • Seeing a beautiful sunset
  • Hanging out with my nieces and nephew
  • Being creative
  • Laughing
  • Writing
  • Seeing people grow
  • My family
  • Supportive friends
  • Passionate people
  • The beach

I could add so much to the list.

I am just so grateful for what I have and this makes me smile.

I would love to hear from you what makes you smile.

Will share more soon.


Prayer Request 2018

Prayer Request 2018

praying3 (1)

There is something about the new year where there is so much encouragement for each other.

We set goals, we dream dreams and we want to achieve so much. We are excited about the new year, we have so much energy, passion and dedication for what we want to achieve.

I love community and I love how when we gather together, there is something really special. I love that when we all gather together, amazing things happen. In community we get to encourage and support each other, how amazing is that?

In community we can bring all of our brokenness, our desires, our dream and our goals together. When we bring this to our safe and supportive communities, we can find a place of acceptance. We know that we have support, that we are loved, that we are encouraged and we have wise counsel.

We need to find a safe place where we can just rest and be who God has called us to be. Have you found that safe place? Let me know if you need help in this area.

You are never alone, yes read this again you are never alone.

There is a community for you, beautiful one. If you are looking for a community begin by praying, pray for a community where you are accepted for who you are. A community where you can grow and develop who you are in Christ.

My prayer for The Heart Project is-

This is a community where we care, encourage and support each other. This is a safe place where we can just hang and discover who we really are. Beautiful one you are so accepted here.

You are worthy, valued, loved.

My thought is do you need prayer?

The Heart Project wants to pray for you.

Let me know what you need prayer for, this is ongoing.

Let 2018 be the year of prayer for you.
