(Un)Deserving of Love by Shovorne Adams

In Christian Living|May 7, 2022|2 Comments|By Shovorne Adams|7 Minutes I was fuming. One thing that angers me more than a bully is a group of bullies. There’s always that one main mean girl and her (so-called) friends. The friends don’t always bully their victim directly, but they encourage the main mean girl and her unkind behaviour with giggles and whispers that validate her reasons for being nasty. Urgh!!! One thing I can’t stand is a group of mean girls, especially when…

It’s Time to Get Re-routed By Shovorne Adams

March 7, 2022|In Christian Living, Bible|By Shovorne Adams Protecting Him from the Elements2 weeks after giving birth to my youngest son, we moved to the shores of the Kent coast. 17 months later, I’m still asking myself why I thought the timing was a good idea; it was a two and a half-hour drive, and the M25 is notorious for bad traffic. Not only is moving house one of the top 20 stressors in life, my post-natal body still wasn’t functioning properly yet, and my two-week-old human…

RESTORED – 6 Scriptures for When You’ve Lost Your Confidence by Shovorne Adams

January 1, 2022|In Faith|By Shovorne AdamsMany of us start life confident.As a little girl, I spoke my mind, road my bike and my skateboard down steep hills, and wore whatever I liked, whether it was in fashion or not. My black Roger Rabbit skirt with a matching top and tiny sparkly silver stars all over was the absolute bomb, and so were my Batman jeans. If I could find a pair, I would don them now. I was excited to have a McDonald’s Happy Meal every Friday, and I didn’t consider…

Three things to leave behind in 2021: Perfectionism, Distraction & Comparison by Shovorne Adams

Comparison is not just the thief of Joy. It’s also the thief of dreams, a destroyer of friendships, an enemy to peace and contentment and the shamer of potential. Social comparison is a natural behaviour to humans, and it starts in the toddler years. It’s like a way of seeing where we fit in the world. But what we didn’t bank on was social media exposing us to what everyone is doing ALL of the time, giving us a constant…

14 Scriptures About Peace by Shovorne Adams

It hasn’t been easy. Not for me and not for most. That’s why I wanted us to spend the last 2 weeks of 2020 meditating on the peace that God has given to us. Worry, fear, conspiracy, hopelessness, loss, loneliness and isolation, are just a few of the words frequently used in the present-day ether. But, as women of God that is not how we are called to live.

God Has The Final Say

Today is trash day at our house. Dedicated waste disposal men come past the Adams home every Thursday in two sets. The first to grab our recycling and the second for our general waste.  I dread to think of the consequences if the waste disposal men didn't attend for several weeks. Imagine how cluttered, gross and stinky our home would get. Eww! Can you imagine that rotten bin smell?  So, every Wednesday night (or, if we forfget, early Thursday morning) my husband or I walk around the house,…

With countries slowly clamping into lockdown, kids being sent home from school, people being told to self-isolate and advised get to grips with social-distancing for the foreseeable future, we might not have the joy of entertaining one another in-person for a while.
