ANXIETY AND THE SACRED SPACES

I was reading a devotion the other night, and it was talking about the importance of simplifying your life, and how everything feeds from your thought life and soon manifests and works it way out of your life (from how you react, through to how you feel and how you ultimately behave) I have been on a little mission to simplify my thought my life. I have discussed here on the blog and on other platforms, how dealing with anxiety and the constant sense of panic has not been an… Read More

EMOTIONALLY REACTING VS EMOTIONALLY RESPONDING

Last week my drama kids performed so brilliantly in; “The Magic Tree”, all their hard work, rehearsing, and prepping beforehand really paid off!
