Where to start?
I am a mother, a teacher, a musician and a children’s worker in church. None of which make me an expert in any of these things – I can only speak from my own experience and opinions (which are my stumblings and strivings towards God and do not represent anybody but myself!) Having been a Christian since the age of 8 (and before that raised by a Christian mum), I am very far from having ‘reached my destination’ -maybe the older I get, the more I realise this truth. But isn’t it true that we are all masterpieces in the process of being completed?
I passionately believe in giving children the best opportunities – both in school, where I am back in my original field of English (can bore for England about Christina Rossetti and the correct usage of the apostrophe!) and particularly in church. Listening to a child’s perspective on God, in particular, is one of the most humbling experiences possible. How come we overcomplicate things so much, when they just come down to the crunch?
I have gained from the wisdom and experience of many other people / webpages, which I may quote from time to time. I hope that in writing this blog, some others may benefit from whatever wisdom God has chosen to give me, in turn.
