If you’re new – welcome! You may get a decent flavour of what this blog’s about by looking at my top ten blog posts (according to site stats).
This post explains the desert mum idea. I like to write about how God is changing us through parenthood, and one way He’s doing this is by challenging us to send our son to a school in special measures. He’s also been calling us towards adoption, so do read how we got here, and why adoption is not our Plan B. Perhaps the more general parenting stuff I’ve written will be of interest: how to be a great school mum (I used to be a teacher…), why I throw away my children’s artwork, or why I sure as heck don’t understand my child’s play. I’m passionate about creativity in communicating truths about God to small people, for example this excellent book which you should all buy (I’m not the author!), and this free resource for an all-age Good Friday service. And, on that note, you really wanted to read about what it’s like being a parent in church, right?
(Or you may just want to dart about here and there, reading whatever takes your fancy. No worries. Just a suggestion.)
