Yesterday I washed all my dishes by hand. Then I did it again today. I have a perfectly functioning dishwasher, so why? Well! I recently read a book by Joshua Becker titled "the more of less". In this book he has a section on why he stopped using his dishwasher. It's an interesting read, you … Continue reading Hand wash vs dishwash(er).
As I left another day's work, I quickly snapped this photo. So beautiful, yet so tormented. A bit like every human being I've ever met.

Thanks to the Scruffyvicar for this one, a good reminder of how our actions can have a ripple effect.
I used like the Star-fish story, you probably know the one? It is of a man seeing another man on beach which is covered in starfish drying out and dying in the heat of the sun.

It is good to be reminded that everyday acts of kindness can be life-transforming-blessing to other people, that the way we live our lives does speaks volumes and our words can hold life/hope/salvation.
I think we often don’t realize the impact that we can make on the people we meet or the surrounding we are in.

The purpose here is to help people who fall pregnant unexpectedly or having a crisis pregnancy who are considering abortion to know that they … Continue reading Emily’s Voice
This quote appeals to me because it reminds me of what's important in life. At the beginning of the year, we sat down and wrote a family manifesto. I've written previously about it here. And in March I went Facebook Free. Best. Decision. Ever. I'm back on now, and back to where I started, which … Continue reading 3 Day Quote Challenge Day 2
