Coffee Catch Ups

I don’t know about you but I love coffee and I love catching up with others over coffee.

There is something about meeting others and chatting over coffee.

I work as a primary school Chaplain and I love what I do, I really do. I am passionate about my role and giving back.

I am also a peer support Chaplain for the area that I work in.

This means that I am available to help and support other Chaplains in my area.

I do not take this position lightly, I want to invest in others, to support and encourage them.

Last Tuesday we met as a group at an amazing coffee shop and just shared how we were going.

I love the time that we could just rest and help each other.

I love that we could just be real with each other.

We shared, we encouraged, we supported and we just listened to one another.

I love that we could just chat and encourage each other.

I love that we provide a non-judgemental space to just be.

I love spending time with someone that you do not realise how long you have been chatting. That time is really not important.

Do you have someone that can encourage and support you?

Do you have some that can listen to you?

Do you need someone to chat to?


Would love to hear from you.

The Creative Adventure

The Creative Adventure


Yesterday, which was Saturday I had an early start I was on the road at 7.15am heading to 3 creative workshops.

I can hear you already 7.15am, yes, I know but for me, this was an adventure a creative adventure.

I was heading to Rockingham in Perth which is about 40 minutes away from where I live.

I arrived for my first workshop which started at 8.30am a time to just write.

For me, there is something about being in a creative space with other creatives. I love meeting creatives and hearing about what they are doing, what inspires them and their tips on writing.

I love a place of encouragement.

I love the space to get out of the house and work on my writing.

I spent time working on my book and I did achieve a lot yesterday.

There was one part in the day where Amanda (the facilitator) asked us all, what are your writing goals for the rest of the year.

We all took the time to share and say out loud what we were going to do.

My goals are to write a blog once a week and have my first draft finished of my book by the end of September.


Yes, that is my goal.

When was the last time you spent time with other creatives?

When was the last time you were inspired to write more?

When was the last time you invested in your creativity?

I would love to hear what you are working on.

Let’s encourage one another on this creative adventure.
