Overcomers Series

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by!

In this part of my blog, you’ll find real-life stories of people who have been through the fire and have a story to tell. These are people who have literally walked through the valley of the shadow of death and found that although it was dark, God was still present.

I hope their stories cheer you on to keep on fighting, to never give up, to rise up and overcome.

P.S. if you have a story of overcoming adversity that you’d like to share with the readers, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Together, we’ll make a life raft from the ashes of our trauma and help other people to safety.

With Unvarnished Love,

Breaking the Bias – Rahab Style 🙂

Throughout the Bible, wherever Rahab is mentioned (Joshua 2,6; Matthew 1:5, Hebrews 11:31; James 2:25), her profession is also included – ‘Rahab the harlot’. This is in no way to insult or denigrate this great woman of faith but indeed God’s way of highlighting the fact that she had so many strikes against her, so…

Showing up for Real in 2022

“I cannot show up to fight Goliath in Saul’s armour.” This one thought has been doing the rounds in my head for a while. I’ve recently been re-reading the account of David’s duel with Goliath in 1 Samuel 17. This is a classic bestselling, ‘cinema sell-out’ thriller of a battle where the underdog topples the…

Change the Channel

Recently, I have been reflecting on the story of Adam and Eve’s unfortunate misstep that condemned the entire human race to the slippery slope of sin. Questions play an important role in this story; from the Serpent’s post-modernesque ‘Has God indeed said you shall not eat of every tree in the garden?’ all the way…
