‘He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.’
Dancing Through Chaos is my blog space for unpacking aspects of life which grab my attention.
For the last few years I’ve been living wherever I hang my proverbial hat, currently between the UK and South Africa. It can look chaotic; it’s certainly not ‘neat and tidy’, but I’m learning to dance within this space rather than fight it – hence the name.
I’m a writer, speaker, imperfect follower of Jesus, wife, and mother of four grown-and-flown children, and a thousand other things besides.
My passions are for authenticity, integrity and justice. I love to ‘see the lights come on’ for people when they grasp truth that makes a daily difference.
Writing takes up more of my time these days.
For twelve years I had a monthly column for a local newspaper. I’ve also written a series of four themed devotionals – the sea, the city, the countryside and the mountains – each with six weeks of material. Contact me if you’d like to order a copy.
My book, Spiritual Feasting, was published in May 2020. Based on Psalm 23:5, it explores how it’s possible to take our assigned place at God’s table and ‘feast’ even when life serves us a bitter or sour ‘menu’. It’s for those who ‘recognise that Jesus never promised a trouble-free life, but want to experience the reality of living life to the full with Him.’ With Biblical and contemporary examples of those who’ve done just that, it’s a book that will challenge assumptions and comfort zones while encouraging you to pursue authentic intimacy with the Host of the banquet. Questions alongside each chapter give an opportunity to dig in to the nourishment of the sections more fully – ideal for small groups or an individual reader. Published by Instant Apostle, it’s available through good bookshops and on-line; you can find it here: https://instantapostle.com/books/spiritual-feasting/
Relaxing for me means reading, watching movies, walking (preferably through green fields and by a river), laughing, exploring or a good wallow in the bath. Pet dislikes include liver, sprouts, maths challenges and finding places for the first time…
