This week I face surgery …its only little surgery, not major but my heart is still anxious. But the surgery will be worth it. You see for the past 2 years I’ve dreaded period time. Too much information! At the age when most women are experiencing flushes and menopausal tendencies my body has decided to become full on. So once…

Revival Whisperer

By | The Table

Revival Whisperers!    “Out of Tasmania will come a revival which will sweep Australia and affect the ends of the earth!” Old words whispered and re whispered from one generation to the next. A longing held within the soul. Revival Whisperers staying captive to Tasmania, hoping for the living of their whisper. I love Revival Whisperers. I love their faith and share their…

Why did we raise our kids in church?

Why did we raise our kids in church?

By | The Table

  My husband didn’t grow up attending church on a weekly basis.  He went twice a year.  Every Easter and every Christmas. So why did he choose to parent differently? Was it simply because we are pastors? If we listened to all our critics over the years our kids were supposed to turn out rebellious, chain smoking druggies, having sex with…

Jesus’ presence silenced prejudice

By | The Table

“I don’t want my children using public buses to get to school because it might mean they have to sit next to kids that go to government schools.” “I need to mix with people more like myself.” “I’m not sure that I want that type of child near my children.” My heart just breaks when I hear these kinds of statements….

Will you pray for our youth?

By | The Table, Uncategorized

The kingdom of God is present in our youth. One of the beautiful activities that Jesus performs on planet earth is bringing lost souls into proximity to his heart.
