Week 19

My Facebook/Instagram is full of all my friends in the UK surrounded by a winter wonderland (except those in Guildford or near Gatwick apparently). I have been checking (praying) since 9am to see if my flight was cancelled just so I could be forced to stay just one more day in Guildford. However I am…

Week 12

I have been quite lazy with the past few posts so here’s an actual update! Spirit So a few weeks ago I set myself the challenge of reading all of the new testament by the end of the year which meant roughly 3 chapters a day. I am proud to say that I have stuck…

Week 7

So this week has been one of those weeks where I had a lot of time to reflect (daydream). The culmination of these reflections was me wanting to do more. I’ve always thought I already push myself quite hard to fit a lot into my days/weeks but a combo of this being the first weekend…
