Mother’s Day – The Forgotten Prayers


What a delightful surprise to wake up this morning and discover that my new book had been featured on Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday post! I was surprised, humbled, and thrilled all at the same time. Thank you, Kate! What an honour!

For the rest of the day, I’ve been trying to write my Five Minute Friday post and failing terribly. Swirling emotions and disjointed thoughts, but no words.

Oh my goodness, people are going to read this? What will they say? What will they think?

Do you remember those nightmares as a child, just before a big presentation, when you dream that “It’s Showtime!” and you show up without pants?

Haha. Yeah, that’s me.

It’s an incredibly vulnerable thing to share your passion with other people. Art is vulnerable. Writing is vulnerable.

Will I be enough to make this beautiful?

Will I be enough to make this powerful?

Will I be enough?

And then the words of this simple Scripture flood my mind and my heart to bring comfort and calm,

courage and confidence.    Read more
