I am 52 and have been married for 22 years. My wife and I have three fabulous children and we all live in Newcastle Australia. For most of my life, I have worked in the building industry until 2013 when I had a stroke and the following year a workplace accident. This turned our family on its head and the turmoil lasted for years. I am a believer that when one door closes another door opens and since July 2013 I have found a new love in writing. It appears I am a storyteller, dreamer, and passionate blogger. I write to tell my stories and blog to help the hungry and thirsty navigate the Valley Of Bones. To be rewired in this place is no small thing and to stand with others will improve your ability to survive.
Why the Holy Spirit.

Why the Holy Spirit.

Because despite our best efforts, we don’t know what we’re doing.   We will never fully understand Gods plans because they are too big to comprehend. The splinter of truth we think we have is not enough to do what is right before God.   If you have accepted His salvation and Jesus is your Lord then God has a plan for your future. The way forward from here, however, is a two sided coin that depends on your willingness to surrender…

A razor’s edge

Gods love has been stolen

Gods love has been stolen

‘Religion’ has stolen Gods love and holds the bride to ransom.   There is a thief among us and still, no one has noticed the broken glass on the ground. He took what was set apart to revive and heal and put something else in its place. It was nothing big or obvious, just a tiny thing but it’s enough to change the outcome to the original plan.   You will be hard pressed to track it down on your own, it’s well…

Own your faith

Own your faith

Hold onto the rock, even if it’s by your fingertips…don’t let go, you have to own your faith. The time has come. You are about to be pushed out of the nest and if you don’t know how to fly you’re going to hit the ground…hard. Until now the church has been in a holding pattern. Around and around you have wandered trying to find your way to the next place but this has not been allowed because your destination…

Why are Christians so afraid of getting close to God?

Why are Christians so afraid of getting close to God?

  You may think that this a stupid comment to make but I assure you that it is far worse than it sounds.   I have seen it many times; God speaks directly to the heart and instead of considering what He is saying and putting these insights to work on the ground they run and go silent. Two worlds exist in the church today and the balance leans heavily towards the selfish side. It is true to say that Jesus is lifted…
