The Little That You Have – by Shovorne Adams

October 19, 2022|In Christian Living|By Shovorne Adams When life is bountiful, overflowing, our cup runneth over, and all is well, it’s easy to give, bless, share, and show kindness, when you have plenty. To gift others from your overflow is still a gift, but what about when you have very little to present? In your cup is just dregs. It takes heart to give from the little that we have. “He looked up and saw the rich dropping their offerings into the temple treasury. He also saw a…

(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 Bible, Christian Living|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.

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 and comparison

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…

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.
