Mom holding baby in the air, wearing a blue Christian babygrow

Mom, keep going – what you are doing is worthwhile!

As you read this, you might be having one of those days. Oh you know the ones I mean. You’ve been up since before dawn with baby, walked eyes half closed into the kitchen, just thinking about getting coffee. Looking at the clock, you decided to make the kids breakfast first. “Mommy!” Your toddler is calling from the bathroom. You leave everything half-done and rush to help with toddler’s potty training. “Can you tie my laces?” your preschooler pops in his head, not waiting for his sister to be done. You finish up the toddler, tie the laces and walk back to the kitchen, picking up clothes and toys as you go. You look blankly at the breakfast in progress. As you open the cupboard to get out the cereal, you are wondering: “Why is […]

Young people sitting against blue wall, laughing, wearing Christian T-shirts

Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…

It must have been only a short while after we started printing our own range of Christian T-shirts that I became deeply  aware of what people were wearing. My eyes were drawn to the fonts, the logos, colours….but mostly the pictures and the messages on clothes and T-shirts. I was shocked by some of the things people were blatantly donning in public; messages of death, violence, sexual promiscuity and profanities among other things. Being a Mom, I am also deeply concerned with kids’ clothing. Kids everywhere are wearing messages like “Little Rebel”, “Troublemaker”, “Rules don’t apply to me”, “Mommy’s Monster”, “Warning, next tantrum in 2 minutes”. Sometimes I want to stop a parent somewhere and point to the T-shirt and say: “Look. It’s no wonder your child won’t listen to you”. When I see these […]

Spring blossoms - how gratefulness can change your life

Put the spring back into your step this Spring – Tips for being thankful

Life can be hard. And sometimes it feels like the straws just keep piling up until the burden of it can be quite overwhelming. We had a tough season. The wonderful news of being pregnant again was quickly overshadowed for me by extreme nausea. “Morning sickness” is really a misnomer, as it hit me all day, and was especially worse in the evenings. Keeping to normal life became increasingly difficult and my poor husband had to pick up the pieces when I just couldn’t. Starting late afternoon I couldn’t keep anything in, unless I laid down, which meant my husband (after a long day’s work) had to feed and bath and put our kids to bed every day. Anyone with children will know that on the best of days this time of day is not […]

Hands clapping together in dust

Being dust; is that a good thing?

“And what about love?” Our pastor was going through the fruits of the Spirit. “Do we really love people the way Jesus does? We love our friends, our family, sure. But what about our enemies? What about the person who annoys us? What about a dirty beggar? Hey, think about it. Lice could be a real problem you know. It’s not that easy getting it out of your hair, having to buy special shampoo, to comb it out with those little combs…” Everyone was squirming in their seats, imagining the little creatures running through their hair and feeling very uneasy with the challenge of loving the unlovable. He was trying to make a point. And the next thing he said hit it home but at the same time came as an immense wave of relief: […]

Man on beach kneeling and praying with Bible verse from 2 Chronicles 7:14 - If my people who are called by Name, will humble themselves and pray

South Africa needs change – what can you do?

Even if you have not been following the news in these last few weeks, you will definitely agree that our beloved South Africa desperately needs change. Crime, racism, corruption are but a few things we can mention that are currently destroying the country we love. The circle is drawing closer and closer and us and the people we love, our friends, our families are being affected by it. A famous quote reads that “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” ~ Edmund Burke Something needs to be done.  And it is the responsibility of each of us to be that good person who does something. So what do we do?? In times like these it can be tempting to fight the world with the world’s weapons […]

Ocean and rocks background with verse: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Prov 3:5

Something to encourage you right where you are

God is not so much into our comfort than into our redemption. “Wow, okay, how is that supposed to encourage me right now”, I hear you say. This week at Bible Study I was reminded again that God’s ways and thoughts are so much higher than mine. And try as I might, I just don’t understand everything that He does or allow. But, you know what, that is a good thing. As my pastor recently said: If we can understand and explain all the ways of God, wouldn’t that make us just as smart as God. Which would mean that God’s mind would be limited and small like ours. And who would want to serve a God like that? When I look at Joseph’s story in the Bible I am amazed at his steadfastness, humility […]

Two children laughing

A cheerful heart is good medicine – proven

Don’t you jut love it when science catches up to the Bible? Almost 3 000 years ago Solomon wrote these words: “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength” (Prov 17:22) Studies have shown that hearty laughter decreases stress hormones, relieves physical tension, increases blood flow and immune cells and even has an anti-inflammatory effect that protects the heart muscles from the damaging effects of heart disease.  Laughter releases endorphins, our own natural feel-good hormones and has a similar effect on our brains to taking anti-depressants. When we laugh together, these same hormones promotesin us a sense of togetherness and safety. ** Truly God has made us in such an amazing way and He has designed us to to have fun and laugh – a lot! When I look […]
