So, the eagle eyed among you will know that recently we moved house. It was a really exciting move, away from a stressful situation, and into a new and exciting place. But with the arrival of a new school term, with my son starting in a brand new school, I was suddenly struck with how … Continue reading Starting from scratch – mission in a new place
can an app help you love your community? I live in Doncaster, and despite it being crowned the “most chilled and least stressful place to live in the UK”, most people’s reaction to this announcement is “oh that’s a shame!”. You see, Doncaster isn’t the nicest place in the world (although I’m sure it’s not … Continue reading Can an app help you love your community?
I am sucker for a digital campaign that aims to try to connect me with God or the community more (you will already know how much I love 40 acts each lent!). So when I heard about Prompt 28 I was very intrigued. I signed up straight away with only a few days before it … Continue reading What is #Prompt28 all about?
I always try to keep my shopping bills as low as possible, whilst still feeding my family well. I try to keep to a £70 a week budget - this is normally £40 in lidl on my big weekly shop, with a couple of emergency trips to ASDA in the middle of the week! So … Continue reading Mum on a Mission does the £2 a day challenge
So I am feeling rather festive at the moment after weeks of preparing everything at work and now the decorations have gone up at home. It got me thinking about how I am going to bless those around me this year. I have done numerous things in the past - leaving secret hampers for neighbours, … Continue reading Candy Cane Bombing!

The word on the street is that this will be announced on the 22nd November, but … Continue reading Mum on a Mission VS the Train – Episode 5
"The world of the generous gets larger and larger. The world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller" Proverbs 11:24-26 (MSG) Sometimes in the craziness of life, the simpleness of God's calling to us gets lost. There are two passages where this is made black and white, and where we can find clarity that pushes … Continue reading Larger and Larger – Mummy Meditation Week 12
So I kinda missed a week of mummy meditation. My mind was so full of jobs and thoughts and reactions to train news that I didn't allow any space for my weekly verse. I didn't allow space to think over it whilst I was working, whilst I was walking to nursery, whilst I was in … Continue reading All that you NEED – Mummy Meditation Week 11
This week's meditation follows on quite nicely for me from last week's (do catch it here if you missed it). Last week I spoke about God being my place of refuge throughout me dealing with some difficult news - this week I wanted to look at positively changing my response to this and chose … Continue reading Nations You Know Not – Mummy Meditation Week 10
So this week I chose a verse that had jumped out at me from a facebook group, one that spoke into a (relatively) dark day that I was having and brought light. It is one of those "feel good" verses that people often quote when something horrible is happening and they don't know what to … Continue reading Refuge – Mummy meditation week 9
