A Reminder.

The winter season is coming in rapidly (especially in Manchester!) The nights have come quicker and darker, the trees are bare and the weather is cold. This time of year can be hard for many, it’s not the brightest season and this affects us sometimes. Personally, I’ve found the season change a challenging one, as…

No more living for the culture, we’re nobodies slaves.

A little bit contradictory I’m sure, but I loved Kanye’s new album. In fact, it actually spoke to me! I listened to it on repeat, but one lyric in particular really spoke to me. In Closed on Sunday he sings the lyrics, ‘No more living for the culture, we’re nobodies slaves.’ I’m also not trying…

3 things Elim School of Worship taught me

For anyone who is wondering what I’ve spent the past year doing, here is a very tiny snippet of the internship that I have just finished for my placement year. I had the privilege of being involved with various types of ministry within the church but here’s one aspect I wanted to share some standout…

When Anxiety Comes

As the title suggests, this is a tool I’ve designed to help you face reality when anxiety comes. That’s right when anxiety comes. It arrives at different points for all of us…

Where’s your mountain top?

It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of life and feel suffocated by all the things that we should be doing. Often times, the thing that slides the most is our prayer time, quiet time with God or our Bible reading time. There’s probably several reasons for this but that’s not my point. Nor…

Why We Changed the Name

Guess who’s back and better than ever?! (google it) After a long time of prayer and consideration we have decided to rejuvenate our blog: our name, vision and format. Originally, we named our blog ‘Rooted’ because our vision was wide and less focused than it is now. We wanted to encourage other believers to be…

When I don’t feel like praising…

Maybe it’s Sunday morning, and the band is playing all your favourites but for some reason, you just can’t concentrate. Perhaps you didn’t get the results you worked so hard for. You’ve fallen out with a friend. Or maybe you’re just tired? Let me start by saying this worship is not for you, but you…

For the girls (boys too if you like)

For the girls (boys too if you like) This post has been on my heart for a very long time, I am so excited to share this with you all because I truly believe that this can change things. It is so hard to express the vastness of this subject in written words, there is…

Joy

It’s basically December, so I’ve recently started to listen to Christmas music again. I’ve also started watching Christmas films and actually decorated my Uni flat. While doing all of this, I began to realise something that has changed my life.   The past 6 months have been really hard for many reasons, I’ve found myself…

Uncomfortable

The title above literally is the one word to describe my life right now! What if comfort isn’t the goal? We live our lives constantly chasing after what is comfortable and we therefore think that these things are ‘good’. Think about it practically, we eat ‘comfort food’ (chocolate for me) when we’ve had a bad…
